Bwacha stated this on Sunday while interacting with journalists in his residence in Jalingo, expressing worry over the overwhelming insecurity in the country that has destabilized every sector of life, and that Nigerians need to submit the situation to God through prayers for a possible solution.
Bwacha who is the representative of Taraba South further expressed that he does not know how Nigeria got to this mess of bandits, where no place in the country is save.
“The country is sliding into anarchy which is dangerous for us Nigerians, we need to pray hard for God intervention.
“The primary responsibility of every leader and government is to protect lives and property, I support the call for state of emergency on security to enable the country survive. It’s only when lives and properties are being protected that you can move and interact freely and as well enjoy the provision of nature.
“The northeast is gradually moving to be a lawless zone, boiling violence, the Northwest has boiled and is gradually extending to other zones of the country where if no proactive move is taking, we will not have the country standing again.
“I do not support the call for president Buhari’s resignation over the increasing insecurity, I think God is not happy with us, Nigerians and we need to pray for forgiveness.”
The senator while reacting to the continuous ethnic clashes in the southern zone of Taraba, suggested dialogue as solution to end killings in the area.
According to him, he has been working out modalities with his Benue counterpart, Gabriel Suswam, whom his zone borders with, to ensure lasting peace and unity among the people.
