FG, State Should Fight Insecurity The Same Way We Are Fighting Coronavirus – Ihejirika



Ex-Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika has come out to beg the federal and state governments to fight insecurity the same way they are fighting coronavirus.

He recently revealed this while delivering a keynote address at the leadership capacity building conference, tagged; Leadership Impact in 21st Century Nigeria, organized by the Student Union Government of the Methodist Theological institute, MTI, chaplaincy, Umuahia, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, in the fight against Covid-19, there have been no religion, party, tribe conflicts, and every Nigerian joined hands in the battle, so the same unity must happen amid our insecurity.

He then begged those in authority to do their best to restore security, because the people are already distressed.

His words, “In the fight against Covid-19, there was no religion, party, tribe or whether citizens work in the Ministry or private organization, as all those things did not matter. If this kind of resolve against Covid-19 is also taken by the Governments of Nigeria at all levels and the citizens, in no distant time, insecurity will become a thing of the past in Nigeria. Whatever is necessary to restore security should be embarked upon now, people are already distressed.”

“Having found the nature of insecurity in the country, as priests, you must focus on the youths. It is always very easy to destroy, but to build is very difficult. Spreading false information has become the order of the day in today’s internet world.”

“As Christians and leaders, we must seize every opportunity to condemn violent crimes and the spreading of hatred. When you receive messages from social media and send it without first scrutinizing it, you contribute to spreading fears.”

“Spreading fears will not help anybody; rather, it will worsen our condition. If you tell the whole world that the South East is under siege, that it is not safe to go to the market, our people and others who want to do business with us will run away from us, and hunger and other disasters will set in and we will become worse for it.”
