Another chief Executive and chief security officer of a whole state has goofed and further heightening our religious divide in the country. Just like Gov Nasir El- Rufai of Kaduna state, the Gov of Taraba state Dairius Ishaku has made unguarded utterances in wake of security challenges facing his state.At a thanks giving service the man called on Christians not to allow themselves to be kill, but to ensure they use all available means to defend themselves. Section 15, subsection 2 b of the constitution, clearly states that the welfare and security of the people is the primary responsibility of the government. Being chief Executive of Taraba he is there to protect and preserve the lives of all citizens of the state in respective of religion, tribe, race or creed. As chief security officer of the state all the citizens of the state whether Christians, Muslims or animist are under his protection. Any security breach, he is also being held responsible.Taraba is a melting pot of killings based on religion and tribe. The tivs and jukuns that are predominantly Christians are killing each other in equal measure measures. The kutebs and jukuns are at dagger drawn. The Fulanis and jukuns are also killing each, while the Fulanis are also killing each other with other ethnic groups. The failure or inability to bring the mindless and senseless killings to halt lies squarely at the door steps of all the three tiers of government. The Gov is supposed to put in place proactive measures to prevent these dastardly acts.

I keep on saying just as there are bad Muslims so we also bad Christians. We at all times even at the risk of being tagged as traitors must find common ground to live to together in peace and harmony. I keep on giving the example of Ahmed Makarfi and Yakowa who governed Kaduna state( the hot bed of religious fanaticism that had resulted the destruction of lives and properties), fairly and justly. They refused to bow to religious and ethnic bigotries in governing the state and most importantly they dispensed appointments fairly to all people in Kaduna state ie in addition to spreading development evenly. And the result was a peaceful and harmonious Kaduna that recorded monumental development strides. It’s unfortunate that the gains of these people are gradually being eroded by El Rufai, Mr know all and open bias to one group.Let us pray that the peace that has taken flight from this nation should return and the only way it will return is when the leaders and the led are united against injustice, violence and totally committed to bringing about quantum leap in our embarrassing and self created socio- economic woes.A word is enough for the wise. To be forewarned is to forearmed. As we use to say in our students days. A luta continua. Victoria a certa.( a Portuguese expression that the struggle continues and victory is certain.
