Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, a former Board of Trustees (BoT) member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has retired from active politics.
Mr Iwuanyanwu, a front line politician in the South-east, disclosed this in Owerri at a news conference on Thursday, saying he was quitting after 43 years in active politics.
He said the country’s security intelligence should “immediately profile Nigerians supporting foreign invaders and declare them national saboteurs”.
Mr Iwuanyanwu advised the federal government not to “romance” with the issue of insecurity, adding that the situation in Nigeria has become “a national emergency”.
“Those attacking Nigerians are majorly foreign invaders, I wonder why Nigerian intelligence cannot profile those we call unknown gunmen.
“This is the right time for the federal government to establish state police, the Nigerian problem cannot end without restructuring and state police,” he said.
He said the federal government should also enact a law empowering state governments to acquire arms and take absolute control of security in their states.
“It’s very laughable for any governor to advise the people to defend themselves against invaders.
“It is not possible to fight invaders operating with automatic rifles with a den gun, so state governors must be allowed to take over the security architecture in their various states,” he said.
On restructuring, Mr Iwuanyanwu said the Nigerian economy would continue to experience setbacks if the country was not restructured.
He said with proper restructuring, governors would develop their states at their pace, which he said would guarantee rapid development.
