Advise FG wisely on Boko Haram – Ado Bayero
The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, on Wednesday urged the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North to offer wise suggestions to the Federal Government on the best ways to end the Boko Haram insurgency.
The Kano monarch regretted that sponsors of the sect activities could be known individuals operating within and outside the country.
According to him, only prayers, God’s intervention and concerted efforts by government and discernable Nigerians can bring an end to the violence and spate of insecurity bedeviling the country.
Bayero, who received members of the committee at his palace decried government’s lackadaisical attitude over reports and recommendations of similar committees and expressed hope that the Federal Government will take the current issues seriously.
Chairman of the Committee, Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (SAN), told the Emir that his team has been in consultation with all stakeholders with a view to tapping from their wisdom and wealth of experiences.
“We are in your palace to interact with you; and to take ideas from you. We want to understand it from your own perspective. We need your prayers and words of wisdom because the society holds you in high esteem,” Turaki told the Emir.
