If I were President, I will smoke out bandits not negotiate – Orji Uzor Kalu

Former Governors of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has said he would never negotiate with bandits but smoke them out if he were the President of Nigeria.

Kanu made the assertion shortly after a closed-door meeting with former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida at his Up Hill Residence in Minna, Niger State,

“I can not. I will never, never negotiate with terrorists, they are terrorists. I will smoke them out”

Asked on the way out of the current security quagmire bedevilling the nation, Kanu who is also the Senate Chief Whip said one of the ways to end insecurity is to replace Service Chiefs.

“The way out of the current problem we are facing is what the federal government is doing by replacing Service Chiefs. I am not going to say more. But, the Bandits will be surprised at what will happen to them in three months.”

“Government is planning and strategizing very well. It is building momentum, building the Force to intervene and save the Nigerian people,” Kanu stated.

On why he was in the state, the former Abia State Governor said he came to commiserate with the Governor, two former heads of state and people of Niger State on the kidnaps and other security challenges facing the state.

“Niger State is like home to us. My two Oga’s (former heads of state Generals Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and Abdulsalami Alhaji Abubakar) are here. It’s enough for me to come. We heard what happened and we came to tell them, we are praying along with them for peace to return to the state,” he added.
