The National Coordinator/Managing Director, Nigeria Farmers Group and Cooperative Society (NFGCS), Tedheke Retson, has indicated that solutions to insecurity include empowering the local government administrations and boosting agriculture.


Speaking with The Guardian in an interview in Abuja recently, he said most of Nigerian problems stemmed from dysfunctionality of the local government administration and failed agricultural systems. According to him, the use of force alone could not help the country to overcome insecurity.


“The local government system must work again. If the local government does not work, development cannot be inclusive; it cannot be total; it cannot be foundational and it cannot be progressive,” he said.
