Bishop proffers solution to insecurity

An Anglican Bishop has called on the Federal Government to seek ways of providing jobs for the youth to curb growing insecurity in the country.

Rt. Rev. Dr James Popoola, the Bishop of Osun, was speaking to newsmen on the 25th anniversary of the diocese which comes up soon.

The prelate stressed that massive creation of job was the only panacea to insecurity in the country.

He lambasted the leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and called on them to lead by example. Specifically, he advised the party’s national Chairman, Ahaji Barnanaga Tukur, to tow the path of honour by relinquishing his position because of this son’s alleged involvement in the oil subsidy scam.

Bishop Popoola stressed the need for state police, saying that it will complement the efforts of the Nigeria Police in combating crime.

According to him, crime has assumed a critical dimension in the country such that the Police should not be left alone to handle it.

He called on the government to prosecute those involved in the oil subsidy scam.
