Stop play­ing pol­i­tics with in­se­cu­rity, Jib­rin tells op­po­si­tion

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Musa Ab­dul­lahi Kr­ishi

Sec­re­tary of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees, Se­na­tor Walid Jib­rin, has called on the op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal par­ties to stop play­ing pol­i­tics with the spate of in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try.

Se­na­tor Jib­rin said at a time Nigeria is pass­ing through a dif­fi­cult time, it is only ap­pro­pri­ate for all Nige­ri­ans to “rally round the Pres­i­dent and the se­cu­rity agencies in or­der to curb the men­ace.”

In a state­ment he per­son­ally signed, the PDP BOT sec­re­tary said “ter­ror­ism in Nigeria is a prod­uct of the men­ace of the un­godly ac­tiv­i­ties and Nigeria is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the ac­tiv­ity in a very costly way.”

He said the op­po­si­tion should stop blam­ing the Pres­i­dent and come out and help in find­ing the so­lu­tion to the men­ace say­ing Nigeria needs an ur­gent so­lu­tion and spe­cial prayers.

“In­sur­gency and ter­ror­ism by Boko Haram are acts of in­hu­man­ity to man by man. Many in­no­cent Nige­ri­ans, both Mus­lims and Chris­tians have suf­fered. In this re­spect there­fore, I call on all Nige­ri­ans to stop play­ing pol­i­tics with deaths of in­di­vid­u­als.

“We should stop

blam­ing Mr Pres­i­dent, the army and the po­lice as the sit­u­a­tion is too wide and so­phis­ti­cated for easy man­age­ment. The army and the po­lice are try­ing their best as they can­not cover the to­tal ter­rain of Nigeria,” he said.

While call­ing on Nige­ri­ans to co­op­er­ate with the se­cu­rity agencies, Se­na­tor Jib­rin said ev­ery cit­i­zen should show con­cern about what is hap­pen­ing in the coun­try and as­sist in of­fer­ing so­lu­tions.

He be­rated the Adamawa State gover­nor, Mur­tala Nyako over his let­ter to the 19 north­ern gov­er­nors say­ing it con­demnable as it is reck­less and un­guarded.
