Insecurity: Tinubu calls for unity, tolerance among Nigerians


By Wisdom Deji-Folutile

A former Lagos State governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has condemned the recent attacks of insurgents and bandits on Nigerians.

The ex-governor said, “Like all decent Nigerians, I am angered and troubled by the terror and cruelty being visited upon the people of Borno, Yobe, Benue, Niger, Imo and other parts of the nation.

“As a people, we must never surrender to the fearful temptation to blame one another. Regardless of region or religion, we must unite against a common foe. Discord will only invite defeat.

“The enemy’s attacks seem to focus on our schools, religious institutions and security forces. They seek to extinguish the light of knowledge and hope by shrouding us in the darkness of fear and brutal ordeal.

“We must not tremble. They will be vanquished. In the end, tolerance, justice and compassion shall win the day.”
