On Friday, the Forum of Presidents of Youth Organizations in the Middle Belt urged President Muhammadu Buhari to hold an emergency national dialogue to address the country’s deteriorating security situation.
The Forum additionally requests that Buhari respond to the agitations and worries being voiced by Nigerians.
This claim was made in a statement that was distributed to reporters after its meeting in Makurdi, Benue State.
The Forum insisted, according to the communiqué, that the National Council of State meeting come after this in order to develop practical remedies to the recent string of homicides around the federation.
The Forum is very concerned by the recent wave of instability in the Middle Belt region, which has resulted in thousands of deaths, many others being displaced, and thousands of widows and orphans.
“The Forum calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to promptly conduct a national dialogue to address the deteriorating security situation across the nation as well as to address the agitations and concerns being expressed by Nigerians, as he is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
The Forum appreciates Nigerians in other regions of the nation for empathizing with Middle Belt residents throughout their difficult period as a result of senseless deaths and other heinous terrorist attacks.
According to DAILY POST, one of the Middle Belt States, Plateau State, experienced a security situation last year as a result of the closure of certain local schools.
This comes after the August 13, 2022, slaughter of more than 30 travelers who were ambushed along Rukuba Road in Jos North Local Government Area of the Plateau.
