Former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar has urged Nigerians to help improve security in the nation by assisting security agencies with intelligence.
According to him, the country is at “a crossroads” due to the security challenges currently ravaging the land.
Abdulsalami urged Nigerians to pray for peace in the country, adding that synergy with security agencies should, however, accompany the prayers.
“With the present security challenges, ranging from banditry, kidnapping to terrorism, I will say Nigeria is at a crossroads.
“We should therefore try as much as possible to give information and intelligence reports to security agencies for timely action.
“We will always pray for peace and I am appealing to all Nigerians to put all hands on the deck to eradicate this menace of insecurity currently threatening the peace of the country,” he said in an address as the guest of honour at an award dinner organised by the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation in Kaduna on Monday.
Abdulsalami advised the present crop of leaders in the country to emulate Ahmadu Bello.
He described the late Sardauna as a leader who worked for peace in Nigeria and the northern region in particular.
The former Head of State said that the late Premier carried everybody along irrespective of religious affiliations and ensured there was development across board.
