Imo Governor Hope Uzodinma has alleged the rising insecurity in Nigeria is been fuelled by opposition politicians and other disgruntled personalities across the country.
Uzodinma spoke to State House Correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja
The Governor, who admitted that his state, Imo is currently facing security challenges, maintained that he alone cannot guarantee security in the crisis-ridden state.
He said other stakeholders, including traditional rulers, religious leaders and politicians must engage more with the people to restore peace in the state.
According to him, former political office holders who fail to speak out against the activities of trouble makers have questions to answer.
He said if they had been speaking out in condemnation of the unwholesome activities of those destabilising the country, things would have been different.
Governor Uzodimma, who noted he was in the Villa to brief the President on the situation in the state, admitted that all is not well with the country.
The Governor warned that those who are destroying government property must be ready to face the consequences.
