You need political will to end insecurity, not summits says Group to north-west governors

A group known as Patriots for the Advancement of Peace and Social Development (PAPSD) says summits and conferences on insecurity will not end the menace in the north-west geopolitical zone.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Sani Shinkafi, the group’s executive director, said governors in the north-west need the political will to exterminate banditry and other vices behind insecurity in the zone.

Shinkafi said the governors should “accelerate the development of the zone through education, wealth creation, and social amenities that will impact the lives of the people”.

He urged them to “stop dissipating energy and resources in organising peace and security summits and conferences within and outside Nigeria, as they are not the solution to the insecurity confronting the zone”
