Parents Should Not Be Discouraged From Sending Children To Schools- Northern Elders.

This evening according to one of the verified Nigerian news on social media, Today NG revealed the crisis the northern states are facing.

According to Today. ng, the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has cried to President Muhammdu Buhari over the spate of killings and kidnapping ravaging the region, lamenting that children of the zone now get scared of going to school in order not to be kidnapped which is so shameful and heartbreaking.

The Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed advised the northern governors to devise means to address the problems which he also stated that the government should decisively deal with bandits who have refused to jittison kidnappings and killings despite enough to rehabilitate them.

Hakeem Baba Ahmed also made some complaints that the residents living around should organize and raise their levels of vigilance which means that they should resist the temptation to take laws into their hands, and improve the manner they work with Security Agencies.

He also advised parents not to be discouraged from sending children to schools, and all governments must take firmer measures to secure learning institutions which he advised the government that bandits who refuse to submit to mediation and cessation of criminal activities should be treated by the laws of the country.

He complained bitterly that the Federal Government is unable to muster the will or the capacity to limit exposure of Nigerians to violent criminals which made the Government quarrel over causes and strategies.
