Front line PDP Presidential aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN has again condemned what he described as the pervasive and mindless killings across the country.
He was delivering a paper as Guest Speaker at the Sixth Memorial Lecture and Undergraduate Scholarship Awards, under the Chairmanship of H/E. Col. Austin Akobundu (Rtd), Former Minister State Defense and National Organising Secretary, PDP at Ahazu Mbaise, Imo State. The theme of the lecture was: “Security, Unity and Our Future Prosperity.”
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said there will be problems unless the government changed its discriminatory attitude in the treatment of those killing fellow citizens, while citing the recent killings in Zamfara and Plateau States “Even the souls of those in the grave as a result of such heinous act, will be crying for justice, he said. The Presidential aspirant noted also the lack of justice and fairness by the government is fueling agitations for ethnic nationalism in the country today. “Never in the history of Nigeria since the amalgamation of the Northern and southern Protectorate had the people be so devided as now, he said.
To harness the fragile security and unity of the people and also ensure prosperity, Turaki therefore recommend the resuscitation of integrity and credibility in governance at all levels, resolution of pending issues that trigger the feelings of unfairness and or imbalance and lopsidedness in the structure of government, ensuring security protection for the people and observing the rule of law.
