Unity old students want FG’s action on violence
Unity Schools Old Students’ Association (USOSA) has expressed concern over the spate of killings in recent months, including some utterances that question national unity.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the association’s Caretaker Committee Chairman, Ayodele Joseph and Chairperson, of Trustees, Mrs Oyebode.
The association noted that Nigeria’s coping strategy was under strain, and that does not bode well for “Our existence as a happy, united entity.”
It therefore demanded that the Federal and State governments show decisive political will before, during and after Board Aisha all crises situations.
This, it said, has become imperative to enable the necessary machinery of government find and bring perpetrators to book.
“It is imperative that government avoids creating impressions or latitudes that can be explored to create mayhem and plant crises in the country.
“An urgent dialogue with all communities affected by the farmer and pastoralist crises is advocated. We urge the parties to come with open minds to such platforms knowing that no sane person benefits from conflict,” the statement said.
The association commended efforts by law enforcement agencies to stem the tide of killings in the country.
