RESET Nigeria Group, Southeast chapter has called on parents most especially northern elites to solidly support governors’ efforts in ending the serial destruction of lives and properties in the Northeast.
Southeast coordinator of the group, Dr. Emeka Kalu made this known this afternoon while reacting to the mass killing of farmers at rice farm in Zabarmari village, Borno state over the weekend by suspected Boko haram sect.
“I am humbly calling on Northeast polital elites to come together, they shouldn’t leave this problems to Governors alone no matter their differences, this is time to unite and deliver the people because if this trend continues like this, there may not be constituents to lead in the nearest future.
“This should worry everybody that wants this nation to remain intact and progress.
“Aside from the incessant loss of lives, this is impeding business and economy of the regions, which will in turn translate into the already existing economic hardship against the backslash of the security lapses of the area and Nigeria at large. I think this is time we need to collectively work on getting this issue handled.
“Whatever needs to be done at this point must be employed. I am of the strong conviction that as soon commitment is invested into the fight against insurgency by all the stakeholders who will throw their weight behind the Governors to exploit options like consulting with grassroots, leaders of the areas and arriving at a decisive approach will solve the helpless situation.
“This is because I know that the people called “Bandits, Insurgents, Criminals” etc are peoples children, wards and must be loyal to certain persons with voice of reasons over their lives. I believe that if this approach is exploited with unity of purpose, then respite will be possible to usher in a permanent solution.
“I am very pained with seeing Nigerians die on daily basis for nothing. Let us act now before we run out of action”, he cautioned.
