ECONOMY
” In dealing with the Economy of a nation, objectivity remains a key factor and not partisanship. There’s nothing wrong with borrowing if you’re borrowing to grow the economy. The people ought to see tangible evidence of what your borrowing about for.”

“ For me, considering the many sufferings plaguing Nigerians, I will advice that for whatever reason, compounding the woes of Nigerians in form of subsidy removal will be ill-timed. We can seek to cut the cost of running this very expensive system of govt”

INSECURITY
Senator Dickson Speaking on Insecurity , Division along tribal and religious lines as evidenced by the vast killings from Boko Haram, to Fulani herdsmen and Bandits while also answering questions arising from what can best described as anger and outcry from Nigerians on Media on failure of the president Muhammadu Buhari, his vice Professor Osinbajo and the entire presidency’s failure to honor the officers including the late COAS who passed away in the recent plane crash said,

” The Senate of which I’m part of, has little to do in a Presidential system of government that invested so much power on the President. That is one of the shortcomings of our system, and so the President needs to rise to the responsibilities of his office”

” The APC played a destructive pattern of opposition, politicizing insecurity. The insecurity is has come back to haunt them.

Still speaking on security, he said, ” the issue of herdsmen and the menace that open grazing and carrying of arms causes in the society.”

According to Senator Dickson,

” You don’t play politics with Issues of National Security and Economy. We must say it as it is. “
” A Nation where the Police is underfunded, undertrained and is commanded from the Centre in Abuja cannot be swift to protecting life and property in remote communities this is why the Army is overstretched.

” The police needs to be well funded and given proper welfare. No country can achieve good security, or enjoy law and order with a frontline agency like the @PoliceNG living in slums, and receiving stipends for salaries.

RESTRUCTURING
Addressing Restructuring as one of the major issues on the front burner of discussions and debates across the country he said,

” The concept of restructuring” has been misconstrued to a great extent.

” In talking about Restructuring, the role of the judiciary must come into lime light and deliberations must end in ‘constitutional amendment not secession’.

“Anybody that is against restructuring is not a friend of Nigeria, Nigeria’s unity is highly desirable and beneficial.”

“Nigerians never agreed on this bogus Presidential system. Presidential System of government is an Executive Monarch. “

“ Those calling for restructuring just like myself are believers of one big Nigeria, but a Nigeria that is fair to all, that no group would feel the country is theirs alone. Restructuring is a challenge of nation building and establishing justice.”

“ Devolution of Power is not Restructuring, but a part of it. It means Constitutional Reform-a call for a return to the 1963 Constitution.

” Those who said restructuring means different things are speaking out of crass ignorance. “

ELECTORAL REFORMS

“ The issue of electoral reform is very pertinent in our discussions as regards the development of the country, because the place of getting our governance right occupies an eminent position in our nationhood”

“ It’s quite unfortunate that President refused to sign the electoral reform as painstakingly put together by the Legislature. He should take a cue from his predecessor who introduced the wonderful card reader system”

“Fairness and Justice is the only way to unity in this country.

Leaders calling for prayers of unity without working towards making sure citizens get Justice and are treated fairly are wasting everyone’s time”

” I am of the view that the President has not risen to his responsibilities, he is too silent on crave issues threatening the fabrics of our society”

Sen Dickson thanked all present and further encouraged the young people not to get tired of doing and demanding for the right things and also speaking truth to power.
