Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has raised the alarm that Nigerians are living in fear over the incessant insecurity challenges across the country.

Akeredolu, who is the Chairman of the Southern Governors Forum, said this during the visit of members of the Governing Board of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) led by the Chairman, Ambassador Godknows Boladie Igali to his office in the State Capital, Akure.

He lamented that, ”the people are living in fear and something must be done urgently to address the situation and restore hope to the minds of the people.

 

“Look at what is happening in Zamfara. They try to clothe it and call them bandits. They are terrorists. So, the growth in science can not be based on just your charge but the conducive environment in the country,” he added.

The governor stressed the need to make the country livable for the people so as to harness their talents for national growth.

Akeredolu said, “For us in science and technology, we need to do more. Japan, China, and other developed countries send people to where science is the best. We have heard of countries that send their people to the USA to train in Science and Technology.

“They didn’t stay there. They went back to their country to develop it. Commitment to one’s country is key. But we need to make this country a livable place so that the young ones will be confident and have hope to live in this country.”
