The Senator representing Plateau North, Istifanus Gyang, has charged the federal government to improve on security in Nigeria.
He said, “Many years ago, the people of Plateau were under the intense pressure of terrorism; villages were invaded and burnt, places of worship were bombed and civilians and even the uniformed forces were killed. But little was done.
“In fact, many people across the nation thought that this was merely our problem in Plateau State. But look at what we have today in Sokoto, Zamfara, Kaduna, Katsina, the whole of the North East, I mean, places you would never have thought could be affected are all groaning under insurgency. We are not happy to see all these.
“But what if the situation in Plateau was quickly and efficiently handled?
“Would we not have contained the situation and prevented it from lasting this long and affecting so many other communities in the country at once?” h
Continuing, he said, “In fact, if the Plateau situation was dealt with at its infancy, it would have given us some significant lessons on being pro-active and effective in security management.”
