Nyako should not over­heat the polity - Ku­raye

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Balarabe Alka­s­sim

Pres­i­dent of the North­ern Women Peace Fo­rum, Ha­jiya Binta Ku­raye, has cau­tioned Gover­nor Mur­tala Nyako of Adamawa state over his re­cent com­ments on the se­cu­rity chal­lenges in the coun­try say­ing the gover­nor must not over­heat the polity.

Ku­raye who spoke with news­men in Abuja said it is not for Nyako to blame the Pres­i­dent while ex­on­er­at­ing him­self from the se­cu­rity is­sues in the North, as she said it is the pri­mary re­spon­si­bil­ity of the gov­er­nors of the af­fected states to pro­vide se­cu­rity for the people and that the much the Federal Govern­ment can do is to build up on what the gov­er­nors may have achieved.

“But for Nyako to talk as if all things lie with the Pres­i­dent and that he does not share part of the blame is not only un­fair but laugh­able,” she said.

She said it is highly in­ci­sive for the gover­nor to in­sin­u­ate that The Pres­i­dent is con­don­ing the vi­o­lence in the North in terms of se­cu­rity, say­ing the Pres­i­dent Jonathan she knows is ex­tremely too hu­mane to con­done vi­o­lence and blood­shed.

“People should be care­ful of what they say be­cause it does end here, we have been ad­vised to keep quite when we don’t have any­thing to say that will up­lift mankind in­stead of open­ing our mouths to add to the prob­lem.

“What Nyako has done is to seek to add to the prob­lem in­stead of find­ing ways to solve the prob­lem and that is un­be­com­ing of a leader,” she said.

She ad­vised the north­ern lead­ers to join hands with pres­i­dent Jonathan to en­sure peace and se­cu­rity re­turns to the coun­try.
