FUSION 774 Expresses Concern over Nigeria’s Prevailing Insecurity, Economic Woes

 

A group, FUSION774 has expressed worry over the precarious economic and insecurity challenges bedevilling Nigeria.

The National Coordinator of the Group,  Comr. Sadiq Jitka stated this during Press Conference organised by the group in Abuja on Friday.

Comr. Jitka said that the briefing is to express “our concern as a group and of the concern of most Nigerians, this concern is of the economic and insecurity situation of the country, at this transition period toward electing new leaders.”

According to him, these strong national concerns have become an issue for discussion at every forum.

Continuing, he said it is agreed by a majority of the citizens that the leaders have failed to live up to their responsibilities, adding that as citizens, “if we don’t act fast to make things right, achieving the country of our dream may be a mirage.”

The National Coordinator further said the upcoming 2023 general election is going to be an opportunity for “us to elect leaders that can deliver in terms of addressing the economic and security situations of the country.

“Our participation to make things right is going to be the choice decision we are going to make while selecting the right leadership.”
We the Nigerian citizens deserve quality governance and we are responsible for it. The lack of consistency in governance has been a major setback for us as a country. We must ensure consistency in governance while encouraging sustainable policy initiatives and ensuring people-friendly programs.

It is time to take advantage of our vast population, we must invest in our people.

Nigeria has a poor human development index; human resource development plays a vital role in the prosperity of every nation, we stand to achieve a quantum leap, if we invest in our human resources, thereby, addressing the lack of employment facing the youth today. Unemployment is one of our most pressing problems.

Let’s vote for those that this as an issue of national emergency.

When we are voting for leaders in the next election let’s look at those with the trait of building people, those that have the track record in investing in people, this is the future we are looking at, we have to get it right this time, we must come out and vote in numbers. We have to get our PVC today, now. Our PVC is our tool for working out good governance.

We find it a duty to condemn the spate of insecurity in the country, the recent killing of military officers in Niger State is of great concern to us, just as the once happening in States like Zamfara, Katsina, Plateau, South East, and elsewhere in Nigeria.

We condemn all acts of criminality in the country. We stand to condemn the recent jailbreak by the ISWAP terrorist group leading to the release of suspected dangerous elements into our society thus further heightening the insecurity precipitation. We urge the government to live up to its responsibility and double its effort to stem the tide.

In this political transition period, political parties that want our votes should convince us with their roadmap, manifestoes, and issue-based discussions, not trivialities.

I will use this opportunity to urge the PDP as a party to base their campaign on issues that affect the life of Nigerians, not attack persons, like the recent take on the Nigeria Ambassador to the Benin Republic Amb. Tukur Yusufu Buratai (Lt. Gen. Rtd.), dwelling on issues that have been duly addressed by ICPC.

We at Fusion774 are using this opportunity to state our unalloyed position on supporting credible candidates with a track record of good team selection, completed projects, people-oriented programs, human capital building, and enduring legacy.”

Concluding, Comr. Jitka used the medium to “wish our Muslim brethren a special Eid-Kabir celebration, we pray God to make it hitch-free, we also call on people of all faith to pray for the peace of the country at this trying time.
