Reckless comments fueling insecurity, killings — CSOs

A Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Defence of National Security has said that reckless comments by President Muhammadu Buhari’s critics are one of the factors fueling insecurity and killings in the country.

Convener of the CSOs, Comrade Joe Mesele, who spoke with newsmen on Friday, in Abuja, said Nigerians must be patriotic and desist from reckless comments in order to overcome the security challenges bedevilling the nation.

He said those opposing the policies and programmes of the President Buhari administration and making derogatory remarks should also consider the security implication of their actions.

“We have heard some governors and individuals making reckless statements, some even treasonable.

“We know and support freedom of expression which is paramount but will you in the name of freedom of expression destroy the nation that gave you an identity?” he queried.

“To these group of people, we want to remind them that Mr President’s tenure is just three years but Nigeria remains till God calls.

“So, will you because of three years pull down the nation on all of us?” he queried.

“Our security forces must be insulated from the malaise of negative politics ravaging the land, and politicians must desist from wearing out our soldiers with their divisive, incisive, and insensitive pronouncements,” he added.
