Dont Abandon Fight Against Insecurity For Federal Government Lawan, Yahaya Tell Nigerians

The Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan, and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Farouq Yahaya, have urged Nigerians to always view the country’s security challenges as a collective battle that must be won rather than a sectional one.

They urged the citizenry to join hands with the Federal Government in the fight against banditry, terrorism, kidnapping, and other challenges staring the country in the face.

They spoke yesterday in Iyin Ekiti, in Irepodun Ifelodun Local Government Area of Ekiti State, where Lawan was conferred with the chieftaincy title of Aare Akorewolu of Iyin Ekiti by Oluyin, Oba Adeola Adeniyi Ajakaye.

Lawan, who represents Yobe North, stormed the town in the company of over 30 senators, including the Federal Lawmaker representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, who donated a coaster bus to the Oluyin-in-Council.

Lawan appreciated Oba Ajakakaiye for the honour.

According to him, “The 9th Senate has done what we need to do to make Nigeria great. Our leaders who set a vision for the country came from different constituencies, backgrounds, religious inclinations, but they had a vision that Nigeria should be the best in Africa.

“Challenges were faced, but those leaders dealt with some of them and subdued them. Other subsequent leaders also had the vision to make Nigeria a country that will be progressive, develop.

“Today, we are facing some challenges. like our former leaders used to do, we are also dealing with these challenges. The present Senate is dealing with the challenges facing the country despite our political and religious differences.

“Now, we are facing security challenges all over the country. Political, religious, and traditional leaders must come together. Whether the problem is predominant in the Northwest or Northeast or Southwest or East, all hands must be on the deck to resolve all these challenges.

“As a matter of urgency, we should come together as a people and deal with these challenges, most of them if not all of them, and make Nigeria a great country. No part of Nigeria can entirely face the problems facing the country and tackle them all”.

He described Bamidele as a reliable politician, who values integrity, propriety, professionalism, and the development of the country, especially Ekiti State.

“Senate had passed a bill establishing Medical University here in Iyin Ekiti through a bill sponsored by Senator Bamidele. I will make sure I lobby President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the bill so that the university can take off in time”.

Oba Ajakaiye said Law and six other eminent Nigeria were honored for their contributions to the development of the town and Nigeria at large.

Also speaking on the security situation in the country, Lt. Gen. Yahaya, who graced the occasion alongside over 15 serving and retired top military officers said the Nigerian Army is working hard to stamp out activities of terrorists and bandits, killing and kidnapping and make the country safe for all citizens.

“The Armed Forces are doing their best to secure the nation and we will continue in the task of making Nigeria free from this present situation.

“Security is a business of everybody, all stakeholders, particularly the community leaders. It is the responsibility of every Nigerian. We appeal to Nigerians to join us in the task of securing the nation.

“We are ready to work with other sister agencies to secure our nation. We are also tapping from the experiences of those that had served before us in the Armed Forces to guide us in my present task of securing the nation”, Yahaya said.

In his remarks, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele said he would continue to work hard to attract dividends of democracy to the state.

Bamidele applauded the leadership of the senate for the glowing passion to bring development to all the 109 senatorial districts across the nation.
