As Muslim faithful across the country mark the Eid-El-Fitr celebration after the successful completion of one month fasting, a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Hon. Isah Dobi has called on Nigerians to take the issue of security seriously by being security conscious.
Dobi gave this counsel in his sallah massage to Nigerians while interacting with newsmen in his country home during the Sallah celebration.
He admonished citizens to cooperate with security operative in the fight against insurgent in the country by reporting strange movement around their neighborhood.
The former parliamentarian who represented Gwagwlada, Guje, Gwali and Abaji Federal Constituency in the National Assembly described as despicable and evil the incessant bloodletting by the insurgent group Boko Haram.
He explained with nostalgia the recent bomb attack in Gobe state market where innocent citizens who had gone to the market for sallah shopping were ruthlessly murdered by the activities of the mindless group.
He also berated the comment credited to the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Alhaji Lai Mohammed that the achievements of the current administration in one month surpasses the achievement of the previous administration in six years.
He said that though Nigerians had clamored for change, the change requires time. He therefore advised citizens to be patient with the current administration so as to reap the dividend of the change.
Dobi however explained that if Nigerians do not change their attitude and disposition towards government, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will fail like others before him.
On the crisis rocking the National Assembly, the experienced parliamentarian noted that party undue interference is responsible for the crisis.
He said that the legislators should be allowed free hand to choose their principal officers in line with rules, saying that position of the party which give some zone two principal officers negates the established practice in the parliament.
