WEEKEND DISCOURSE: Why Are Our Candidates So Mute Regarding the Perversive Insecurity Plaguing Our Region

By Suleiman Usman Nyaja 

It is undeniably disheartening to witness the silence of candidates vying for positions in Jalingo, Yorro, and Zing regarding the pervasive insecurity that continues to plague our region. 

The pressing issues of safety, stability, and the well-being of the community should be at the forefront of any political agenda. Instead, it is disconcerting to observe that the focus appears to be solely on winning elections, with little attention given to the urgent need for solutions to the escalating security challenges.

The citizens of Jalingo, Yorro, and Zing are enduring the harsh realities of insecurity daily, and the absence of meaningful discourse on this critical matter from those seeking to represent them is deeply troubling. Candidates must recognize the gravity of the situation and articulate concrete plans to address the pressing security concerns that are affecting the lives of the people they aim to serve.

Our region is in dire need of leaders who are willing to confront the difficult issues head-on and prioritize the safety and well-being of the populace above personal or political gain. It is the duty of those seeking public office to engage in meaningful dialogue, propose viable strategies, and demonstrate a genuine commitment to ensuring the security and prosperity of our communities.

We urge all candidates to rise above the allure of electoral victory and instead focus on addressing the urgent security challenges facing Jalingo, Yorro, and Zing. 

The future of our region depends on the ability of our leaders to confront these issues with sincerity, empathy, and a genuine dedication to the welfare of the people they seek to represent.
