Nollywood Actor, Yomi Fabiyi has asked Muhammadu Buhari to do something fast about the worsen situation of security in the country. Yomi who is also the Convener of Break The Silence Foundation, also call on the President to urgently look in the education sector by declaring state of emergency on both industry.
“Mr President, I must thank you for your sacrifices and effort in leading this country. It is true security threats has been prevalent challenges of each administration but you cannot also deny the fact that it is the right of Nigerians. You have the constitutional power to make living in Nigeria meaningful to us.
Sir, please DECLARE STATE OF EMERGENCY on SECURITY and EDUCATION with emphasis on effective implementation. This will usher in peace and development real quickly. 95% of citizens and visitors live in fear sir, we don’t know who is next or who is a threat in our neighbourhood.
Police is on the EXCLUSIVE LIST sir, it is time to step it down(liase with National Assembly) so we can have STATE POLICE. It is not easy for these officers to maintain federal and state laws at the same time with their infinitesimal knowledge on human rights, low morale, logistics etc. These burden can transform to aggression if we must be sincere to them.
Each state will develop state of the art police stations with Digitalisation in consideration. If we add this with National Emergency Number and HARMONISED DATABASE, the spate of kidnapping, banditry, armed robbery, domestic violence will reduce drastically.
Education for every child living in Nigeria at worst Primary level should be COMPULSORY. Subjects MUST include: CIVIC SOCIAL & COMMUNITY, HUMAN RIGHTS, CURRENT AFFAIRS, HISTORY studies. We need education that will raise children to trust the Police vis-a-vis education that will raise the right people to grow and be good police officers, soldiers, doctors, politicians etc.
Any society that does NOT invest in children, education and societal values should not expect honest, good leaders, contented civil and public servants or masses.
General, If these steps are not taken in few months, I will conclude some forces withn iare interested in seeing Nigeria weak and perpetually under-deveIoped so they can continually exploit. I have no other place to genuinely call my home. ACT NOW.
