Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, of Kano state, has called on governments and the ruled to arise to support the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration’s efforts in the fight against terrorism in the country, particularly bedeviling some states in the North-East.
During a press conference in Government House, Gusau, Kwankwaso, who was in Zamfara state to commission a General Hospital constructed by the administration of Governor Abdulaziz Yari at the weekend, said it has become obligatory for every good citizen to contribute his quarter in a fight to end the nasty activities of Boko haram operations.
The Governor claimed that Jonathan alone and security agencies cannot solve the situation, considering the size and speed of the sect’s operations that caused the hardest time ever across the north part of the country, therefore, the ruled should be very vigilante and directly or otherwise point at any suspicious movement for necessary action.
“The situation should not be politicized; it should also not be made to seem like it is religious or tribal, therefore, all Nigerians are the targets of insurgents”, Kwankwaso has challenged.
He further stressed that there would be no decent leader who would plan for the massive death of his people, the situation that eventually pulls back the nation’s economy and other legitimate crusades aimed at improving the living standard of the masses.
Kwankwaso, however, attributed the challenges facing the country to the incompetence and lack of focus of the leadership of the central government, which he said only the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) had the serious politicians that are ready to address the obstacles when voted into power.
