Jonathan’s aide chal­lenges Nige­ri­ans to tackle in­se­cu­rity

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Romoke W. Ah­mad

The Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent on Youth and Stu­dent mat­ters, Com­rade Jude Imagwe, has called on Nige­ri­ans to rise up to the oc­ca­sion and de­fine their stand on the in­se­cu­rity chal­lenges fac­ing the coun­try.

He con­demned the bomb at­tack in Nyanya on Mon­day which killed over 70 per­sons.

He also called on Nige­ri­ans to stop ap­por­tion­ing blames on the govern­ment and stand up to find so­lu­tion and put an end to the prob­lem.

“To­day is time to de­fine the in­se­cu­rity that is be­falling Nigeria. We must de­fine our stand as Nige­ri­ans ei­ther to say we want to bring an end to it or watch them to put us in fear and de­struc­tion,” Imagwe said.

The pres­i­den­tial aide was speak­ing in Abuja when A group of youth un­der the aus­pices of Ini­tia­tive for greater Nigeria vis­ited him.

“We can­not start a holy week with such bar­baric and gang­ster people met­ing bit­ter­ness on Nige­ri­ans and wicked­ness on the fu­ture of this coun­try and above all ex­pos­ing Nige­ri­ans to threat and fear,” he said.

He said any na­tion with no in­ci­dences of in­se­cu­rity was a prod­uct of “shared re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

“Ev­ery time we fail to do what we are sup­posed to do we are telling them that they are suc­ceed­ing,” he said.
