Bishop Onuoha Charges FG to handle lingering security challenge before 2023

As political parties, groups,  Individuals, prepare for  2023 general  elections, the President Vision Africa International and Co-chair Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, Bishop Dr Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha has reminded the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government that addressing insecurity challenges in the country is key to a successful election.     


Interacting with reporters in Umuahia on Thursday, the Methodist Bishop said the most talked about issue in Nigeria now, is security, adding that as political parties and individuals prepare to jostle for positions, it is germane that the Federal Government deploy all resources to deal with insecurity now or 2023 will be a mirage.  


He said Nigerians are now tired of waking up every morning to hear of attacks by bandits, Marauding Fulani Herdsmen, Boko Haram insurgents, stressing that if these enemies of Nigeria are not fished out and dealt with accordingly, the country will be voter apathy during the 2023 general election.                      

The 2013 Global Peace Award Winner, noted that the primary assignment of the Government is to secure the lives and property of the citizenry, adding that this primary responsibility has eroded Nigerians for too long, stressing that there is no better time to address the hydra-headed monster if not now.        

He urged Federal Government to seek collaboration with her neighbours, provide more support for the security agencies who have put in their best to tackle the problem of insecurity, pointing out that changing tactics in the face of persistent attacks by these miscreants, is also key to winning the war against insurgency, banditry, attacks by Herdsmen among others.                 

In his word, “It is germane that as we prepare for 2023, the Federal Government should channel resource towards surmounting insecurity in the country. The citizenry deserve better security, they must go to bed, wake up and be assured that all they have laboured for is intact, if this is not done, there will continue to be fears and apprehensions in the country.    


If we don’t tackle this lingering problem now and once and for all, 2023, will be a mirage and a year that all of us will not forget in an hurry.”
