The Consultative Assembly of Arise Nigeria (UK) has expressed optimism that the menace of insecurity in Nigeria will soon become a thing of the past.
The group also commended the efforts by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and Nigeria's security chiefs in maintaining peace and stability across the nation.
Speaking after a review of governance under the present administration, the Arise Nigeria in the UK passed a Vote of confidence in the president.
A communique jointly signed by Stanley Ojua, the chairman, communiqué drafting committee, Arthur Chukwuemeka Jnr, secretary and Rosemary Olarewaju, a member said the non-governmental organisation is an assemblage of Nigerians in diaspora from diverse walks of life.
The group said as an intellectual and analytical think-tank of Nigerians in Diaspora it analyzed the tensions generated by resurgent insecurities around the country, the fierce interplay of bipartisan forces and the ensuing heat and tensions deposited on the polity.
The communique said the group observed that multiple challenges in the country include weak or recessed economy; high youth unemployment; deficit social infrastructures; the bungled privatization in unbundling of the power sector, leading to poor electricity generation and distribution; high inflation; drastic drop in crude oil exploration in the Niger Delta.
It also listed unstable prices of crude oil in the international market, pervasive and endemic corruption in the system.
"Nigeria was also mired in hyperbolic and multi-dimension insecurity threats, like Militancy in the Niger Delta; Boko Haram threats/insurgency in the northeast; armed banditry in the northwest; restiveness from separatists’ agitation movements, herdsmen/farmers clashes and internal armed conflicts from a retinue of other national challenges," the communique said.
The group said its review showed that in the past four years, the President Buhari administration has either vanquished or ameliorated some of these challenges or stagnated or which have formed the bedrock of current problems in the country.
"It is regrettable that some of these malaises have shown faint shadows in Mr President’s the second term, much as the positives have also shadowed," the communique said.
In its recommendation, Arise Nigeria UK described as impulsive anger and vexation, the resolutions of Wednesday, January 29, by the two chambers of the National Assembly to sack the service chief and for President Buhari to resign.
It said: "In the interim, while we urge all parties to look inward to take make in-depth and critical scrutiny of the problems, the resolutions should be revisited, by whatever means possible."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the presidency has commended the general overseer of the Redeemed Christain Church of God, Enoch Adeboye and the Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) the street prayer walk and rallies carried out across the country.
The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that the peaceful demonstration carried out by the religious organisations against the rising level of insecurity in the country is commendable and typifies the spirit of true patriotism.
