Occupy Nigeria in Kwara State has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to improve on security of lives and property in the country.
According to a statement on Friday by the group’s publicity secretary, Mr. Bashi Araoye, Jonathan should show more commitment to the war on corruption in all sectors of the economy.
He stated that high level of corruption and huge cost of governance has continued to cause untold hardships to Nigerians.
He called on members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect and other groups involved in acts of militancy and terrorism to stop the killing of innocent people, adding that they should see human life as sacred.
Araoye said there should be an immediate overhaul of the power sector and suspension of actions on the planned privatisation, which, he said the group considered as ill-timed and unrealistic.
He said, “The committees of the two chambers of the National Assembly probing the transactions in the oil and gas sector should make their reports public as soon as possible and make all economic saboteurs and subsidy cartels to face the consequences of their actions no matter their status.
“The movement calls on the people of this country to be more vigilant in making their elected representatives and officials at all levels accountable.”
