A group under the aegis of Northern Youths Democratic Network (NYDN) has lauded Present Muhammadu Buhari for the security measures adopted to tackle the rising çases of banditry and kidnapping in Zamfara State.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by Dauda Mathias and Yahaya Abdullahi, National President and Secretary of the group and made available to MoneyCentral in Lafia.
According to the statement, based on the information available to the group so far the military is decisively dealing with all criminal elements in Zamfara State due to the shurtdown of the mobile network.
It said the shurtdown of the mobile network has helped in preventing the bandits from getting information on the movement of the military thereby giving the military advantage over the criminals.
The group in the statement also expressed confidence in the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to tackle the challenges confronting the youths in the country.
The statement said the youths were hitherto neglected and schemed out of the governance of the country, but Buhari has changed the story around for better.
It added that the President through the various social investment programmes has been able to transformed the lives of so many Nigerians youths.
The group added that they have been monitoring the activities of politicians expecially from the Northern extraction and would recommend some of them that would add value to the government for appointments by the President.
The group said for now, the President should nominate Babangida Nguroje, former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives as minister from Taraba state given his track record of achievements as a public officer.
“It is an irrefutable fact that Nigerian politics is divided along religion, but Nguroje is different.
“The former Deputy Speaker has valued for people irrespective of their religion affiliation or social status and it is this kind of Nigerian youth and lieutenant that the President should consider for appointment into his cabinet,” the group added.
The group in the statement therefore called on all the President’s appointees to be patrotic enough and key into his vision of making the country better before he lives office in 2023.
