The Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, IYC, has advised Nigerians to take up other measures of protecting themselves, adding that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has failed.
This was contained in a statement signed by Pereotubo Oweilaemi, Esq., President, IYC worldwide, and made available to us on Saturday.
The youth group commended the Governors of the Southwest for coming up with the Operation Amotekun security outfit and called on Governors and leaders of the other zone to replicate the same in their regions.
IYC declared that Nigeria will know no peace until President Buhari rules this Country in accordance with the unity of diversity.
The statement added, “The growing insecurities across the Country are a clear indication of system failure. The central government has failed in its primary responsibility of securing lives and property in the Country. The people in power at the center has lost control of the system.
“Nigerians in the circumstance need to look for alternative measures to secure their lives.
“No place is safe in the Country because the center is no longer holding the ace. All-State Governors should, therefore, device a means to provide alternative security measures to save lives and property.
“IYC commends the southwest governors for taking that bold step to establish a regional security outfit called Amotekun.
