NYF Urges Caution On National Insecurity Issues

Under the auspices of the National Youth Forum (NYF), some youths have encouraged the elites to use caution when discussing the security issues plaguing the nation.

On Saturday in Abuja, the NYF issued the demand in a statement that was signed by its President, Tanko Gambo, and Secretary, Jamiu Adigun.

The youth organization said that the statement was made in response to a former minister’s claim that the military high command had failed to propose a solution to the country’s security problems.

The group claims that the former minister also charged the military with ignoring an earlier warning regarding the Kuje attack and participating in a plot to stifle the nation’s democracy.

However, the forum praised the former minister for his concern over the matter, noting that it mirrored the nation’s current tone.

“We are concerned about what is happening in our beloved country as young people and students.

We’re not here to stand up for anyone, but after looking into the matter, we believe that caution and faith are what will get us through these tough times.

Sincerely, the situation is grave, but it is not hopeless, as our senior brother, the previous minister, emphasized.

The panel acknowledged that the military would not publicly discuss what it was doing to address the security concerns for a number of apparent reasons, but that did not imply that it had been unsuccessful or inaction.

“We only learned this week that Operation Hadin Kai forces had defeated some militants in Gamage in Borno.

According to the statement, “we think that numerous attempts are being done to restore peace and stability in the nation.

According to the forum, President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the military’s efforts on a number of occasions, as well as the benefits of the revitalized interservice synergy being spearheaded by Gen. Lucky Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff.

The military high command, it claimed, had long vowed respect to democratic governance in the nation, rejecting the claim that the military was attempting to stifle democracy.

The panel applauded the former minister for recognizing the global nature of the security problem and noted that the claim might not be wholly false.

It added that various problems were being faced by nations all around the world and asked for a united front to meet the challenge head-on.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been more than 300 mass shootings in the United States only this year.

One of 14 mass shootings over the long weekend was the July 4th parade shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, which left six people dead and numerous others injured.

“On May 24, a shooting rampage at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, claimed the lives of 19 students and two instructors.

It accepted that domestic chaos might not be justified by events overseas.

“NYF maintains that in order to thwart the terrible plans of American foes, we must band together like citizens of the United States.

We must avoid doing more harm by offering solutions.
