Elder statesmen in Nigeria and leaders of apex socio-cultural organisations on Monday in Abuja warned that Nigerian leaders at all levels should stop what they described as the undue politicisation of matters concerning the security of lives and property in the country.

According to them, such warnings became necessary to bring peace to Nigeria and stop aggravating the already fragile situation in the country.

The elder statesmen jointly led by the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad, and former President Olusegun Obasanjo, gave the warning while speaking at a one-day ‘Retreat on inclusive security organized by the Global Peace Foundation in collaboration with Vision Africa.

They appealed to the elites to refrain from comments that could widen the “gulf of trust deficit amongst the many divides” which make up the country.

 

The statesmen advised that Nigeria’s survival as a nation should be considered sacred.
