Insecurity bleeding Nigeria to death, Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed, warns

Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has warned that the insecurity bedeviling the nation is bleeding Nigeria to death.

The Governor, said at the public presentation of a book written by Amanze Obi titled “Scents of Power” on Tuesday in Abuja that the bloody farmer clashes, cattle rustling, armed attacks by militant herdsmen, kidnappings, among others, have thrown Nigerians into unimaginable horror and suffering.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Inclusive Governance, National Security and the Politics of Accommodation,’ Governor Mohammed stated that many cynics attempt to dismiss Nigeria’s collective promise as an ineffable ideal and regard it as little more than a literary contribution.

According to the Governor, “no society can make progress without the ideas and intellectual contributions which shape our shared histories, cultures and ambitions. It follows, therefore, that our human capital is the greatest asset we have in Nigeria, which can provide a wealth far greater than any which could be drawn from the ground.

“Nigeria is in trouble; nobody can deny this fact. The morphology, geography and architecture of national crises and insecurity are huge, overwhelming and mind-boggling. How we got to this sorry state of affairs is indeed critical but more important is identifying and building the consensus to resolve the complex security threats facing the nation.

“From bloody farmer clashes, cattle rustling and armed attacks by militant herdsmen to kidnappings, abductions, cult wars and urban criminal gangs, our people have faced unimaginable horror and suffering. Quite simply, national insecurity is bleeding the nation to death.”

Mohammed stated that the country was at crossroads, adding that there was a need for a national dialogue with all national stakeholders to build mutual trust, eliminate suspicion, separate organic conflicts from contrived conflicts and reach a common settlement on what works to reduce violence, killings and national instability.

“Only then can we implement a systematic approach to redressing the core issues amid the grief and chaos,” he noted.
