Insecurity can be likened to a terminal disease that is slowly eating it’s way deeply into the society, becoming a tolerable norms that people can be living with. It stiffles economic growth, stability and development, consititute threats to life and property, hinders commercial activities and as well discourages local and foreign investments.
Happenings in the Western part of our State, particularly Nasarawa LG Area and to be precise Udegen – Mbeki and Odu communities along Loko – Oweto are not healthy to mention as kidnapping for ransom, unexpected raiding of Communities, have made many inhabitants to flee their ancestoral communities for their safety and that of their belongings.
From the foregoing, one can easily submits that, reports coming from that part of the state requires all hands on deck to proactively deal with the devastating situation for normalcy to return even as we commend government at all levels especially Nasarawa State Government under the stewardship of His Excellency, Engr. Abdullahi A. Sule for the frantic efforts and tremendous measures put in place to curbe the disturbing situation in the area through modern method of intelligence gathering and sharing as well as advancing modern technology in its managing .
Heartily, I would suggest that, Government should ensure the reduction of poverty in the area and the implementation of a realistic social security program capable of meeting the basic needs of the populace. Called on International Donor agencies, civil society, NGOs and corporate individuals to please extend hands of fellowship and assistance those Communities as their condition prevents them from farming which is the basic source of their livelihood for fear of unleash by the rampaging bandits, hunger and starvation which has taken over their lands..
The era of Lamentations on who to be blamed or take what should be over rather willingness to make conscious efforts towards curbing the menace and restoring peace and stability.
Security is everyone’s business lets put heads together in complimenting Government efforts in this regard to rescue the people of Udege and environs, Youths should raise up to the challenging situation by constituting themselves as security vanguards of their Communities and provide relevant timely information to security and as well, as leaders of Youths in our respective ends, we should consider that, an injury to one as an injury to all, therefore, let’s come together to liberate our people in this part of the State.
