The Senator, representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Sen Shehu Sani, has called on leaders in the Northern part of the country to urgently meet in order to stem the barbaric killings in the country.
According to Sani, there is an urgent need for the Northern religious,traditional, political and community leaders and interest groups to converge and discuss the ugly situation in the region.
In a post on his facebook page, Sani said the region must meet to find solutions to the violence and bloodshed in Northern Nigeria.
“The meeting should come out with practical, immediate and long term solution to the bloodshed in Zamfara, Kaduna, Benue, Plateau, Nasarawa,Taraba and other teror affected states.”
“A standing committee made up of eminent and reputable, non partisan personalities should be established that will set targets and implement all recommendations that will end the violence, entrench peace and forster unity,” Sani said.
“Its evident that most Northern leaders have folded their arms and opt for silence,” the senator said adding that the president alone can’t do it.
“Government alone cannot solve this problem without the people.The earlier we understand this the better,” Sani added.
