From Femi Oyelola Kaduna
The chairman Yoruba Traditional Council in Northern States and Abuja, Ambassador Mohammed Arigbabuwo has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to end the unabated on insecurity ravaging the entire country.
In a statement he signed in Kaduna yesterday, the traditional title holder said the action should be taken without any further delay in order to save the nation from an impending war.
Ambassador Arigbabuwo noted with regrets that despite all the efforts of the government and the security apparatus to nib insecurity in the bud, the menace has refused to vamoose because of the involvement of some bad elements in our midst who are bent on destablishing the current government and by extension the country as a whole.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR), the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo (GCON) and the government to initiate a bill to the National Assembly to look into the issue and declare state of emergency on the situation immediately.
According to him, the lack of will on the government to do the needful has made those involved in the heinous crimes to continue without any fear or favour.
Ambassador Arigbabuwo noted with regret that no day passes across the country without any report of unnecessary killings and kidnapping which created the impression as if we don’t have a government, he added.
He expressed the fear that some people in the country are bent to cause religious war and we should all stand up to rebuke them.
“It has become necessary now than ever for the government to use the big stick on these set of people for peace to reign in the country”, he concluded.
