Senator Saraki Seeks Bipartisan Approach To Ending The Recent Massacres In Nigeria

Senator Bukola Saraki has revealed he is devastated over the recent attack in Yobe state which saw over 43 children of Federal Government College, Buni Yadi killed. The senator was short of words over the recent killings in Nigeria especially in Borno and Yobe state:

I can’t find the right words to describe the activities of this man-made locust that continues to wipe away our communities and children needlessly.

While we are still mourning the last attack in Konduga and seeking for ways to prevent further attacks, the latest killings obviously shows the effect of Mr President and the Governor of the state not been on the same page and it is important that we all put heads together to address this menace before we are all consumed.

Saraki revealed he was tired of sending condolence messages  just as he urged those involved in the massacres to resolve their differences and stop the incessant killings:

This month alone, we have lost hundreds of lives to the activities of these militants terrorizing our existence and as a father, I am tired of having to send condolence messages to grieving mothers, fathers or siblings on this wanton spate of killings.

I urge the key stakeholders to please sheath their sword and differences in the interest of these innocent kids and for our overall peaceful existence to work in harmony and an action plan to stop this uprising.

He urged the Nigerian government to help improve security in the nation as he also implores all Nigerians to support the fight against terrorism my providing useful information to the security agencies

I believe that with the continued attacks in Northern Nigeria, the support from each and everyone of us irrespective of political party, religious belief and ethnicity is vital for combating violent extremism in Nigeria. This support also needs to have the necessary resources allocated by our Government to help ensure our nation’s security. Every Nigerian can assist the government in our own ways by providing information that may be useful to the security agencies.

The senate concluded his statement by sending out his heartfelt condolences to the families of all those who are in grief over the recent massacres in Borno and Yobe state

My sincere condolences goes to the parents and families of the deceased and all those who mourn one relative or the other. I pray Allah will have mercy on the deceased and return our country back to its green days.
