- From Abel Abogonye, Lafia

FORMER Minister of Informatio­n, Labaran Maku, has blamed bad governance for the pervasive insecurity in the North.

Speaking at the 60th birthday of elder statesman, Dr. Nawoni Aboki, yesterday, in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, he appealed to youths in the country to eschew violence and pursue peace.

The former governorsh­ip candidate of the All Progressiv­es Grand Alliance ( APGA) noted that “insecurity is currently ravaging the entire 19 Northern states that used to be the most peaceful region of the country” because of poor governance and injustice.

He urged Northern leaders to do the needful before the monster consumes everybody, noting that it was not too late to correct the ills.
