Minna—THE Governor of Niger State and Chairman, Northern Governors Forum, Mua’zu Babangida Aliyu, has called on Nigerians to unite and fight terrorism confronting the nation instead of allowing it to divide them, saying Nigeria’s unity was not negotiable.
In his Sallah message to Nigerians on behalf of the forum, Aliyu assured that the ugly trend would soon be brought under control.
He said: “Nigeria is a great country and we must ensure that it continues on the part of greatness by making sure that we all believe and have confidence in ourselves again because like all artificial trends, the insurgency will soon be a thing of the past.”
Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Israel Ebije, in a statement, called on all Nigerians to be “more security-conscious, avoid violence because violence is never part of our culture.
”We have seen the direction the security challenges have plunged Nigeria into and it is, therefore, important that we join hands and wage war against these few enemies in order to enjoy the peace and freedom we have been used to.”
While calling on security agencies to continue with their good work, the governor called on all Nigerians to be their brothers’ keepers and also join hands with the government and the security agencies by providing useful information that would lead to the defeat of the insurgents.
