Former minister of defence, General T.Y Danjuma (retd), has decried the deplorable security situation in the country, saying there’s too much killings in Nigeria.
Danjuma, who stated this at the 11th Festival of Praise with the theme “Sing out! Our God reigns” which held in Abuja yesterday, cited the latest Amnesty International report on the security situation in the North-East as being credible.
His words: “We don’t have peace in Nigeria we are at war, at war with ourselves, this war has no war front. It is all over the place.
“The Amnesty International did a report, I will request you to obtain a copy of that report and read it. I request you to decide for yourself because we all live in this country. Whether the report is accurate or not. We are all victims of what is going on in our country.
“If foreigners tell us the truth and our own people in authority are denying it, we should put them right
“And not seat back and keep quiet, Amnesty International was telling the truth. May God help Nigeria.”
He charged Nigerians to eschew bitterness and imbibe the virtue of peace and tolerance as the nation prepares for the 2019 general elections.
He said: “Nigerians should use the season as an opportunity to pray for Peaceful coexistence and tolerance among one another in the country.”
