Every nation has it own challenge it is facing. The way the changelles are figured out and tackled to prevent more calamities is very important. The problem of insecurity in Nigeria is increasing everyday and if nothing is done about it, it may lead to multiple loss of lives and properties. Boko Haram Insurgency, Herdsmen killings, banditry are three of the many problems disturbing us in this country Nigeria. The recent happenings in Imo state and some other states in Nigeria is very alarming and it needs immediate attention. Innocent people are dying on daliy basis, Forbid but we don't know when our own turn will come. Today I will be discussing the solutions i think can stop the issue of insecurity in Nigeria and at end, I will be needing your opinions.
1. Togetherness: One of the way we can tackle the issue of insecurity in Nigeria is by coming together as one. Unity is the key to this problem. Our leaders should put their head together irrespective of their religion and fight this crisis. Matters are escalating because our leaders seems to be folding their hands and doing nothing. If we start seeing ourselves as one, things will become better for us.
2. Employment: The problem of unemployment has eaten deep into this country and it needs to be tackled. All the people causing the killings like the Boko Haram and the herdsmen are not gainfully employed. The government should create employment opportunities that will make the youths of this nation not to be idle because an idle mind is the devil's workshop. The rate of poverty in this country is making the youths and the elderly ones to indulge in evil acts. You all will agree with me that the major problem of insecurity in this country is unemployment and poverty. If the citizens are employed, they won't have the time and mind to kill and destroy. Lack of employment is making them to seek for revenge by shedding innocent bloods.
3. Salary Increment For Armed Forces: The salaries of the Nigerian Police Force and the Army are not enough. The government should increase their salaries so that they will have the mind to do their work effectively and efficiently.
4. Introduction of ICT innovation and Security gadgets: The government should introduce ICT innovation in Nigeria to treat anything that is threatening our security. Introduction of highly mechanized gadgets will enable the armed forces to detect criminal activities quickly. With all the happenings in this country, we need good equipments to tackle Boko Haram, Herdsmen and other threats towards our security.
So my fellow Nigerians I need your opinions, what do you think the government can do to tackle the issue of insecurity in Nigeria apart from the ones listed above?
