Formal Lawmaker at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon Segun Olulade has described the agitations of Nigerians on the insecurity of lives and properties as genuine and deserving of government prompt attention.
While reacting to the spate of killings, kidnapping and armed banditry across the country, Olulade at a forum in Lagos on Thursday tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to particularly respond to the sensitive allegations raised by the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom over plans to encourage the Fulani to take over the Country .
He said, “The allegation made by Governor Ortom is critical to our co-existence as a nation, therefore it cannot be disregarded or left unattended to by President Buhari. President Buhari’s silence over such indictment is unacceptable to the Nigerian masses.
The Commander-in-Chief is the highest security office in the land, and as such, the President needs to make a frantic statement to debunk such weighty allegation and general security matters, otherwise, his silence over the matter, and of course persistent silence over critical security matters portend dangerous signal to the national unity. Mr President should be the last person to be suspicious of on insecurity matters.”
The Lawmaker also commended Senator Smart Adeyemi for his boldness at expressing his position on current security lapses in the nation despite being a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC party – that is democracy.
He, however urged Nigerians to separate politics, religion and ethnic coloration from the security issue facing the country.
He concluded that the future of Nigeria as a united entity is still very bright and favorable to us all rather than tearing it apart along ethnic line.
