Stakeholders in  Nasarawa state  have vowed to resist attempts or plot to destabilize the nation using the #ENDSARS protest  in some parts of the country.

The stakeholders arising from a one day meeting in lafia Friday night, observed that move by some disgruntled elements to discredit Buhari’s administration,  distabilize the country must be resisted by all well meaning Nigerians.

The stakehoders in a Communiqué read at the meeting by Hon. Maman Alakayi noted that no one approach to the security challenges confronting the nation should be applied as a tool to resolving  the country’s challenges.

The Communiqué urged Nigerians especially the political elites,  religious organizations and other critical stakeholders in the Nigeria project to educate their people on the need for  one indivisible Nigeria.

The Communiqué also  resolved to commend  President Muhammadu Buhari for his steadfastness,  initiation of  various reforms at promoting youths participation in governance and making life more meaningful to the youth in particular and Nigerians at large.

“The Nigeria Governor’s Forum efforts   must be acknowledged  for elvolving various strategies at ensuring that normalcy return in the country.    Youths  in Nasarawa state must also be lauded  for refusing to  participate on the Nationwide protest, secuum to pressures by those who never meant well for the country”, the Communiqué stated.

Earlier, the state governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule while declaring the stakehoders meeting open said the  meeting was to appraise the present security challenges  with a view to finding a lasting and sustainable peace, as well as fashion out modalities towards addressing the 5-Points Demand raised by the ENDSARS protesters.

“As you are already aware, Nigeria is  with security challenges occasioned by the activities of the ENDSARS protesters against the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force. The activities of the ENDSARS have continued to pose security threats with attendant consequences on human lives and property, as well as the socio-economic development of the State and the country at large”, Sule declared..

According to the Governor, “peace, security and harmonious co-existence is a collective responsibility of all which demands togetherness,  unison  if  crimes and criminality in  the  society must be fought  for the collective good of all.

” The role of our traditional and religious leaders  for supporting our commitment in calming this situation must be recognized, the Youth  leaders for their various roles in ensuring that the youth did not take the Law into their hands.  I urge you to continue to support our efforts in this direction for the benefit of our society”, governor Sule stated.
