The National Leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) has lent his voice in the loud condemnation of the mindless killing of innocent Nigerians students in Yobe state by a blood-thirsty armed gang. This is not just condemnable but abominable! The shedding of innocent blood is abhorrent in the furtherance of the cause of our common humanity.
This unfortunate incident has once again jolted us into fresh realism on the foreboding of the unknown that the scepter of insecurity in the land has forced on us. This is the time to appraise the effectiveness of current security system with a view to optimizing for proactively combating the Nation’s security menace. As it is often said that, it is preposterous in deploying the same method all the time and expecting different result, our leader has counseled on taking another look at the effectiveness of the blanket disruption of Telecommunication services in the states of Yobe, Borno and Adamawa. Usually, the ‘lock-down’ strategy should not be prolonged and must be preceded by unassailable intelligence gathering. This is the way that the security agencies can be on top of the situation.
GMB equally uses the opportunity to condole the families of the deceased and the government of Yobe State. He prays for the infinite mercies of the Almighty God to grant them fortitude to bear the irreparable losses.
God bless the Federal republic of Nigeria.
