The prominent Islamic cleric, Ahmed Gumi, says insecurity is caused by collective failure and as a result of misplaced priorities instead of ensuring good governance.
According to the cleric, Nigerian leaders do not have a clear understanding of the negative realities affecting the masses.
Furthermore, insecurities (in plural) in Nigeria don’t need any definition. Nobody is secured socially, economically, physically, or even mentally. No personality, no institution is secured from collapse or failure. No tribe, religion, region, or section of the society that is not a victim in one way or the other. Sorry to say, we are a collective failure and we should all bear the responsibility.
He ended by saying, If you come to them through the door, and treat them like human beings, and respect them, don’t be surprised, they will listen to you and you’ll go into the forest and come back safely.
