The Action Congress of Nigeria has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to convene a national conference on the worsening insecurity in the country

The party stated that instead of the regular and immediate condoling of the innocent lives lost in the raging insurgency in the north, the president should convene another strategy to address the problem.

In a statement issued in Ibadan on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party urged the federal government to admit that “it is clearly not winning the war against terrorism and as such, adopt a completely new strategy”

“Nigerians today are not safe in their homes, offices, roads or places of worship” the party stated.

“Terrorists, kidnappers armed robbers and arsonists have taken complete control of the country and all the government can offer are platitudes” the party lamented in the statement.

The party suggested to the president to rid himself of psychopants and reach out to leaders across the country irrespective of religion, tribe or political affiliation to find ways of addressing the lingering collapse of security.

It also called on all leaders, either political, ethnic or religious, to refrain from inflammatory statements as some of these pronouncements have done nothing but fanned the ember of discord.
