May I also call on our people to wake up as the unexpected has just began to rear its ugly head within our domain and this cannot be tolerated. We must know that a time come when a people must take the responsibility of their survival into their own hands. If we had slept, then this is our wakeup call. Let it also be known that no group has the monopoly of violence. Our peaceful disposition should not be misconstrue any any form of weakness or cowardice. We must be our own defenders while we expect government’s support from its already over stretched resource. The sad stories or Adamawa North are still fresh in our minds and must not repeat itself.
I therefore Call on all well meaning sons and daughters as well as other well intentioned Nigerians to come together and surmount this monster. Now is not the time to apportion blames or divide ourselves along ethnic or party lines. This calls for a collective resolve. It must not start and end at press conferences and releases, practical steps and visible actions must be taken and it is NOW!
