Ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan has come out to say that Nigeria’s pursuit of peace cannot be achieved in isolation of the pursuit of justice and other human security needs.

He recently revealed this at the public presentation of a research report titled ‘Terrorism and Banditry: The Nexus’; conducted by the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation.

According to him, the problems posed by banditry, terrorism and other associated crimes threaten the vital values of the nation’s democracy and nationhood, so they cannot be condoned.

He added that peace is key because it is the bridge that links poverty to prosperity, reconciles hope with despair and imposes order on chaos.

His words, “Our pursuit of peace cannot be achieved in isolation of the pursuit of justice and other human security needs.”

“This is so because peace is the bridge that links poverty to prosperity, reconciles hope with despair and imposes order on chaos.”

“There is no doubt that our nation is plagued by many crises and these challenges have continued to threaten our fate and shared destinies.”

“We have lost our loved ones, lost millions of properties and investment because of insecurity.”

“The challenges posed by banditry, terrorism and other associated crimes threaten our human essence and the essential values of our democracy and nationhood.”

“This is why the GJF considered it apt to undertake this research with a view to engaging the relevant stakeholders towards an improved security.”

“We must, therefore, show commitment to peace, in words, in action and in all other necessary means.”

“As a leader, I have been privileged to preside over the affairs of this nation for five years.”

“I appreciate the challenges that come with nation building and the burden associated with pursuing peace and building trust in times of crises ”

“This report we are presenting today contains some observations and recommendations on the challenges of banditry and other human security concerns in our nation.”

“The report is by no way conclusive and complete in itself; that is why stakeholders have been invited to discuss the way forward and suggest more solutions beyond those put forward in the research.”
