The former Presidential spokesperson who lamented that the activities of bandits are running education system in the North aground, further averred that technology should be deployed to wipe out the criminals.

He said; 

“No president has ever given a detailed explanation of how they intend to tackle insecurity, improve the economy is this country. They always don’t give a blueprint.

“I have a masterplan to eradicate insecurity, particularly the activities of banditry. If the situation continues the same way, I am going to run for presidency.

“I have been to the height of it all, we need to do things differently.”
