Ethnic youth leaders advise FG to develop new strategy of fighting insecurity

Concerning the level of Insecurity in the country, an ethnic youth council, the Nigeria Ethnic Nationalities Youth Leaders Council, has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to be proactive and develop new strategies to tackle insecurity. They gave this charge in Abuja on Wednesday, when the President-General of the Council, Mr Terry Orbih, addressed journalists. The council, also informed that the level of insecurity in the country was really becoming a worrisome issue.

“Our stand is that the Federal Government needs to be more proactive in dealing with the growing spate of insecurity in the country as we cannot continue to witness such mindless killing of Nigerians in their numbers on a daily basis. The main essence and purpose of government is the protection of lives and properties but this appears to have been defeated in Nigeria. On a daily basis, Nigerians are being mowed down and roasted like chickens for no fault of theirs, except the fact that they are Nigerians. We say today that enough is enough and urge the security agencies to sit up. We have heard so many words without action from the government, we have had enough rehearsed condolence messages from the government, what we demand now is an end to the massacre of Nigerians under whatever guise. The council said.

The council also expressed their worries over the level of corruption prevalent in the country today.

“We are concerned over the level of corruption in governance in Nigeria. This has to a large extent impeded development in the country, with resulting infrastructural decay across the country. The humongous annual budget of the country has not in any way translated to development. There are no commensurate development indices vis-a-vis the trillions of naira released every year as capital expenditure. The reason for this gap is not farfetched- it is buried in the graveyard of corruption.” The council noted.

Regarding the 2023 elections, the council called on political actors to avoid inflammatory statements ahead of the general elections, that could lead to crisis in the country, while urging the Independent Electoral Commission, (INEC), to create a level playing field for all contestants in 2023.
