The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has strongly condemned the recent attendance of some Northern Governors at a symposium on insecurity held in the United States of America, instead of within the Northern region where the issue persists.

The party Acting National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Muhammed Ishaq, said in a statement yesterday that the “decision not only represents an economic waste but also showcases a lack of commitment and understanding of the gravity of the situation at hand.

“We find it appalling that these governors chose to discuss the pressing matter of insecurity in a foreign country, while the very people they govern continue to face the consequences of this issue daily.

“Their absence from the region during such crucial discussions only highlights their disconnect from the ground realities and the plight of their constituents”, the party said.

The PRP noted that as an informed commentator on banditary in Northern Nigeria has put it, “all the solutions are here in Nigeria if only they can summon the political will to tackle the problem. And if only they can summon courage to stop milking the serious insecurity crisis for political and material ends.

“The crisis is morphing dangerously. Perhaps our governors will sit up if one of the luxurious government houses is invaded by bandits or overrun by desperate citizens who are on the receiving end of their excesses and incompetence, such as we have a few years ago seen in Sri Lanka.

“There’s nothing the Americans told them, which is not known to many people in Nigeria. The Americans got the information from Nigerians – their funded NGOs, numerous Nigerian research centres, security agencies, their own operatives in the country, particularly those in the state houses, etc.

“We are absolutely sure the Americans have extracted more from our governors through their interactions with them in the last few days. To crown it all, our governors on their part have been giving good United States of America (USA), PR cheaply, at a time USA is being pressurized by our neighbour, Niger, to pack and leave. Our governors must reflect deeply and face reality as they seem too shortsighted.

“Furthermore, the PRP is dismayed by the recent workshop organized by the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, along with state commissioners of finance and other government officials, held in the United Kingdom. The choice of location for this workshop, during a time when the nation’s economy is struggling, is not only irresponsible but also indicative of a lack of concern for the financial well-being of the country.

“We call upon these governors and government officials to prioritize addressing the issues within their own jurisdictions and to demonstrate their commitment to the welfare of their people.”

The PRP urged them to focus on finding practical solutions to the problems faced by their constituents, rather than engaging in extravagant and seemingly resource-embezzling events abroad.

Concluding, the party demanded “that the Northern Governors and the involved government officials take immediate action to rectify their misplaced priorities and channel their efforts towards improving the lives of their citizens.

“We urge the public to hold these leaders accountable for their decisions and to push for transparency and dedication in addressing the critical challenges faced by our nation”, the statement concluded.
