President Bola Tinubu has described the lingering insecurity bedevilling Nigeria, particularly the North West region of the country, as inherited security compromises.

The president stated that national security in the North-West is not a sectional agenda.

The Nigerian leader was represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima on Monday at a two-day security and peace summit organised by the North-West Governors Forum in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme in Katsina State.

The President stated that the banditry and insurgency prevalent in the country are a result of historical injustices inflicted upon the victims of conflicts.

Reflecting on his inaugural speech one year ago, Tinubu noted that “we promised to make Nigeria safer, and this aim has been our topmost priority since we came to office.”

Shettima, who read the President’s address, said: “Beyond the economic rationale that drove the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern parts of Nigeria, the formation of our great nation was inspired by the need for mutual protection.

“But, I ask, how can we achieve this sacred objective if one part is afflicted? We have long established that whatever ails any part of this federation, it destabilises the others. So, the issue of national security in the North-West is not on the sectional agenda.

“The road to redeeming the security compromises we inherited was mapped out before we embarked on this journey.

“We realized that achieving the peace we seek necessitates addressing the historical injustices that have torn communities apart.”
