A United Kingdom based Nigerian think tank, the Consultative Assembly of Arise Nigeria (UK), has expressed optimism that the menace of insecurity in Nigeria will soon become a thing of the past.
The group also lauded the efforts by the president and other security chiefs towards national peace and stability of the country.
This was made known after a review of the governance under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari current tensions generated by insecurities.
This was contained in a communiqué jointly singed by Dr. Stanley Ojua, Chairman, Communiqué Drafting Committee, Arthur Chukwuemeka Jnr, Secretary and Rosemary Olarewaju, Member at the end of the meeting.
The group appeal to all Nigerians unpacified, aggrieved, dissatisfied and disenchanted with manifestations in the system to eschew bitterness. ‘’We urge all aggrieved persons to pray and support our leaders to serve the country better as another New Year begins’’
They appeal for oneness and unity of purpose in our perceptions, interpretation and reactions to issues of national flavor, especially insecurities. Misguided, reckless and sentimental comments on such sensitive matters could aggravate the problem and blur the genuine search for solutions.
Further in their resolves, the group deemed the resolutions of January 29, 2020, by the two chambers of the National Assembly (NASS) as riled by impulsive anger and vexation, adding that it was a decision hastily adopted.
‘’In the interim, while we urge all parties to look inward to take make an in-depth and critical scrutiny of the problems, the resolutions should be revisited, by whatever means possible. We recommended that it should be retouched or possibly, rescinded in order to enthrone a cordial atmosphere to advance a unified common front in thoughts and actions against enemies of the state”.
