UK based Nigerian group lauds Buhari’s efforts towards national peace, stability
The Consultative Assembly of Arise Nigeria (UK) has expressed optimism that the menace of insecurity in Nigeria will soon become a thing of the past.
The group also lauded the efforts by the president and other security chiefs towards national peace and stability of the country.
Arise Nigeria, UK, made this known after a tentative review of the government under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari (May 29 to January 31st, 2020); current tensions generated by insecurities.
The body also passed a Vote of confidence in the President, stimulated by prospects of analytical economic growth parameters on Nigeria and efforts towards national peace, stability, and cohesion.
This was contained in a communiqué jointly signed by Chairman, Communiqué Drafting Committee, Dr Stanley Ojua, Secretary, Arthur Chukwuemeka Jnr, and Member, Rosemary Olarewaju at the end of the meeting.
The communique stated that the Federal Government has taken steps to intensify security for the lives and property of all Nigerians irrespective of wherever they reside in the country. It said the armouries of the Nigerian military have been constantly replenished.
“In the past three years, domestically built armoured vehicles and surveillance equipment. Mid -January 2020, Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar admitted collecting two helicopter gunships for the Nigerian Air Force to battle terrorism and other insurgencies.
“The 12 Tucano fighter jets ordered from America will arrive the shores of Nigeria in 2020 or latest, early 2021. There is actually massive weaponry restocking of the Nigerian Military generally to counter threats of insecurities such as the delivery of South African Paramount Marauder vehicles etc”, the communique noted.
Arise Nigeria, UK, resolved that it was ultra vires and counter-productive to pass a resolution calling for the resignation of the President and sack of Service and Security Chiefs.
“These could invoke dire consequences of uncontrollable dimensions on the counter-insurgency operations in Nigeria,” the group said.
“In the past four years, the President Buhari administration has either vanquished or ameliorated some of these problems/challenges or stagnated or which have formed the bedrock of current problems in the country.
“It is regrettable that some of these malaises have shown faint shadows in Mr President’s the second term, much as the positives have also shadowed.
“Arise Nigeria, UK, observed a resilient character in the re-emergence of some of these problems especially completely surmounting the challenges posed by armed criminalities in Nigeria by this administration.
“Of particular note, Boko Haram/ Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorism; herdsmen mercenary killings, armed banditry, kidnapping, widespread armed robbery, and sundry other hi-tech-crimes have continued to sporadically disrupt the peace and security of our people, in permeating continuous social and; public disorder in Nigeria.
“Arise Nigeria, UK also examined the efforts and progress (preceding and present) by the administration of President Buhari in overcoming these national malaises. It has concentrated energy and enormous national resources to extinguish all manner of insecurity threats in the country, etc”, the communique added.
