Igbo youths demand Masari’s resignation over call for residents to resort to self defense
. Say Nigeria may soon become another Afghanistan
By Steve Oko
The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders COSEYL, has demanded the immediate resignation of Gov. Bello Masari of Katsina State over his call for citizens to acquire weapons to defend themselves against rampaging Fulani bandits, saying ” it’s a clear indication that he has failed woefully.”
“The most honorable thing for him to do is to resign as the governor of Katsina state”, COSEYL President, Comrade Goodluck Ibem told Vanguard in Abia.
Continuing he said:”If residents should adhere to this call to acquire weapons to defend themselves, it means that there will be total anarchy and nihilism.
“Unknown to Masari, he is calling for mob rule, nihilism, reign of terror, bedlam and entropy which will also consume his government and there will be nothing called Katsina state government.
“What will happen will be more dangerous than what is happening presently in Afghanistan. The reign of terror will spread to other States and there’ll be nothing called Nigeria.
One should imagine the current level of insecurity in the North even when the government has not given approval to the citizens to acquire weapons. Now that the government through the governor of the State has come openly to ask his citizens to acquire weapons, which simply means that anyone can move around with arms without any check and balances.
The statement by the governor is very dangerous. He should call it off immediately and use his security vote wisely to provide security for the citizens and if he cannot do that, he should resign immediately.
” There is no sentiment about security. Life is too precious and it should be handled with utmost care.”Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
