Tackle Insecurity with Greater Vigor, Abdulsalami Abubakar tells FG

By Ebi Daniel in Minna

Former Head of State, General Abdulsalam Abubakar has advised the federal government to forget every infrastructure development and divert all necessary fundings to the security forces to secure peace in the country.

The Minna  born former Military head of State noted that, if there is no peace, there cannot be a country as he stressed the need for government to stop every unnecessary development across the country and focus on security.

Abdulsalam made this statement when the Senate President, Ahmed Lawal paid him a visit to commiserate with him over the death of the father of Senator Sani Musa, the Senator representing Niger East Senatorial District.

He said, ” My suggestion is that due to the overstretching of our security forces, I think, all the necessary fundings should be given to the security forces. I suggest that we look at the unnecessary development issues in the country and do the needful to make life bearable and let us face this insecurity by diverting the necessary fundings to secure peace in this country. If there is no peace, there will be no country.”

General Abdulsalam further prayed that those making life difficult for Nigerians will lallow reason to prevail inorder   to give peace a chance.

“Nigeria as a whole are good people, they don’t ask for much but there are few irresponsible ones making life very difficult and I hope the good Lord will guide them to see reason and give peace a chance.”

Speaking earlier, the Senate President appreciated the advice of the elder statesman saying that the courage, resolve and determination of Nigerians would help the nation surmount its current challenges.

“Every single hand is needed on deck today. As leaders, elected or appointed, we have responsibilities and obligation to the citizens. We need the support of the citizens as well to solve the numerous problems that Nigeria faces today.

“The challenges are numerous and profound. But the courage, resolve and determination of Nigerians would see us through because we are determined to surmount these problems and challenges.”

Lawan said that majority of Nigerians still want Nigeria to remain a single country adding that those calling for segregation of the country should be properly guided.

“There are so many issues, some people are agitating for segregation of the country but I believe that majority of Nigerians want Nigeria to remain a single country. And those who are on the sidelines, who are agitating should be guided properly, let them see the reasons why we should continue to be together.

Senate President, Ahmed Lawan also visited former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida and had a closed-door meeting with him and from there, he went to visit the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Farouk Bahago.
