1st Gombe Security Summit: Stakeholders laud FG, Gov Inuwa, security agencies

Stakeholders of the first Gombe state security summit have commended the Federal Government, the governor of Gombe state, Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya and the security agencies for their efforts to have a hitch-free summit in the state.

The stakeholders said the summit offered an opportunity to interact and converse with some of the leading experts and stakeholders in internal security management in the country with a view to charting new directions for better and effective management of internal security in the state and country.

The summit according to them observed that national and global challenges such as the climate change, economic recession, the Covid-19 pandemic contribute to insecurity and instability, calling on governments and security agencies to develop a proactive security strategy for predicting and mitigating the security consequences of such events.

Decrying the complex nature of current security problems in the country, the stakeholders charged all members of the community to be active partners in the collective efforts to prevent and control crime in the state and the country at large.

With the summit, they said Gombe State Government is encouraged to organize a town hall meeting to discuss the dual issue of drugs and political thuggery so as to find a common ground among stakeholders on what needs to be done to prevent violence ahead of the 2023 general elections.

According to them, lack of sports and recreational facilities were the contributory factors to drugs and substance abuse, youth restiveness and gang violence, stressing that the provision of such facilities especially in urban centres would help engage the youth and enable them to harness their God-given potentials.

The Summit commends the present efforts of the state government and security agencies to prevent farmer-herders clashes and to peacefully resolve all disputes over farmlands and grazing lands.
