The pioneer Director General of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, (NGF) Osaro Onaiwu has urged former governors from 1999 to 2019 to converge as soon as possible to deliberate on issues bordering on national security.
Osaro Onaiwu made this call recently in Abuja, charged the former governors to speak out against the insecurity and other vices ravaging the country, as keeping quiet in the face of killing and destructions will not help the country and its citizens.
The former DG further noted that none has raised his voice against the killings and carnage in the country in the past few years.
He said that “rain doesn’t fall on one roof, insisting that the earlier the insecurity ravaging the nation is tamed the better for everyone.
Onaiwu pointed out that nowhere is safe in the country, adding that the nation is not at war, but the blood that has been spilled in the past few years could be counted as a nation at war.
Onaiwu advised the former government to come together to add their voices to what is happening in the country.
He continued “The former governors should meet like others leaders of thought that have been working round the clock to proffer solution to what is happening in the country.
“Keeping silence will not help the nation as there is nowhere that is safe presently. This is the time for them to meet and take action.
“Religion, ethnicity and other cultural affiliation should be put aside so that this country can be delivered from the hands of bandits, terrorists, kidnappers, robbers and others destroying the nation.
“It is high time somebody speaks out and the formers governors still have influence in this country and they should not keep quiet. Keeping quiet will not help the country to overcome the monster of insecurity and other vices”
