Governors of the 36 States of the federation under the umbrella of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), on Wednesday, stated that the plot by evildoers to take over Nigeria would fail.
They urged the security agencies to improve intelligence gathering as part of efforts to win the war against terror in the country.
Ekiti State Governor and chairman of the NGF, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, in a statement on Wednesday, said leaders at all levels must wake up to address the insecurity in the land.
According to him, the Kaduna-Abuja train attack on Monday night is a horror-dream orchestrated by the wicked merchants of death “that we must all wake up from to address.”
He said, “This is one attack too many. It must stop.
“First, as leaders, we owe the victims and their relations an apology as these unwarranted acts of violence are becoming too regular and they basically question our collective capacity to govern.”
He prayed to God to grant those that lost their lives eternal peace and a place in the deepest recesses of heaven.
“We wish those that were injured speedy recovery to resume their lives and put their heartless aggressors to shame”, he said
According to him, if the intention of those murderers was to disrupt the peaceful coexistence of Nigerians, they will not succeed and when eventually total peace returns to the country, they will surely either be lifeless or excluded.
