Mark urges FG to end bloodshed on the Plateau

KANO- Former President of the Senate, Sen. David Mark has urged  President Bola Tinubu to  review  the security architecture, to making it more  proactive and strategic towards addressing the challenges.

This is contained in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Paul Mumeh in Kano on Tuesday.

Mark said a review will identify the loopholes and devise a means to end the blood shedding.

He said the Plateau incidents in which scores of citizens were massacred should be a wakeup call that the security challenge needs urgent attention.

“It will not be out of place to declare an emergency on security. Any step taken to end the continued killing of citizens will be worth the trouble,“he said.

He urged the federal government and security agencies to do more, saying that life has become so cheap in Nigeria today as if people have lost humanity in them.

Mark implored the government to collaborate with subnational governments in the task of ensuing peace and security in the country.

He commiserated with the government and people of Plateau just as he suggested that residents should be on alert, and cooperate with security operatives to prevent reoccurrence.

The former senate president called for harmonious relationship among various ethnic and religious adherences in the country.

Mark advised  against taking grievances to the extreme, pointing out that “there are legitimate channels to address grievances instead resorting to self-help.( NAN)
