Acting president Yemi Osibanjo on Tuesday attributed the nation’s increasing security problems to corrupt practices and injustice.
He also said inability of government to provide the basic needs of the people gave rise to incessant agitations by ethnic groups in the country.
Osinbajo spoke at the 50th Conference of Nigerian Law Teachers Association held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.
He stressed the need for the three arms of government to provide a conducive environment for enhancement of quality of lives of Nigerians.
The acting President said: “A lot of these agitations centered on the failure of the states to create an inclusive society, a failure to guarantee the security of lives and property by the agencies charged with the responsibility and failure to build trust around the law and justice administration.”
He charged the law teachers to use the conference to deliberate and find lasting solutions to key issues confronting Nigeria’s legal system and jurisprudence.
