Northern Elders Forum on Sunday came hard on President Bola Tinubu, saying the growing insecurity across the country indicated that the present goverment has failed to protect Nigerians just few months in office.

While declaring that enough is enough, the elders said Kuriga school children abduction is another tragic incident that highlights the growing need for improved security measures.

Spokesperson of the forum, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, in a statement on Sunday, said though the forum welcomed the abducted children back with open arms, there is need ro emphasize the urgent need for proper medical and shock checks as they reintegrate into society.

The elders said: “The Northern Elders Forum firmly declares that enough is enough. The safety and security of our children should never be compromised or subject to negotiation. It is unacceptable for Nigerians, particularly those in the northern region, to continue living under such insecure conditions.

“Unfortunately, just months into the Tinubu administration, there have already been clear signs of failure in providing the vital aspects of security of life and property to citizens. This situation is deeply concerning and requires immediate attention from our leaders.

“While we celebrate the return of the abducted Kuriga school children, we must also recognize this event as a wake-up call for all of us.

“We cannot afford to become complacent in the face of such acts of violence and disregard for human life. As elders, it is our duty to protect and nurture the next generation.

The forum urged the government and relevant authorities to work closely with us in ensuring that “our children can go to school without fear.”

It added: “The safety and well-being of our children must always be a top priority. We also call for accountability and swift action from our leaders to address the security challenges our communities are facing.

“The return of the Kuriga school children stands as a testament to the resilience and strength of our community. Let us use this moment to unite and actively work towards safer conditions for our children and our communities.”
