Ahead of 2015 general elections, a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Ogun State, Buruji Kashamu, has warned against using the current security challenges facing the country for partisan pursuit.
In a statement yesterday, titled “The State of The Nation,” Kashamu berated some Nigerians for creating the impression that the current administration in the country was responsible for the state of insecurity.
“The attitude of these leaders is clearly motivated by the agenda they have agreed upon for the transfer of the presidency to their anointed candidate in 2015. One can then understand the President’s alert to the nation in the recent past, that the terrorists appear to have supporters and partners even within the government.
“This is natural in politics, because those within the government who recognise these bad leaders who are trying to create confusion from the sidelines, as their guiding lights and understand what the objective is, will chip in their own quota to support the perceived plan of their masters, no matter how nefarious. This is the reason why such important national issues should not be politicised.” Kashamu stated.
He said the north is an important component of the federation. “They are rich in history, culture and human resources. They boast some of the most experienced, the best and brightest in various fields of human endeavour…
“The region boasts of young industrialists and entrepreneurs who have carved a niche for themselves in various fields of human endeavour and continue to create employment for millions of Nigerians irrespective of tribe, creed and colour.
“These gains must not be allowed to be swept away in a fit of anger, for it is easier to destroy than build. The peoples of the North must not be seen to be the very ones undoing their own progress and advancement, ” Kashamu added.
