Some respected Nigerian elders have called for citizens' support for the inspector general of Police and other security chiefs in the country.
The elders under the aegis of Pro-Nigeria Elders Council (PRONECO) also passed a vote of confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari especially in the fight against terrorism in Nigeria.
In a communique released after a meeting on the security situation in the country in Abuja on Thursday, February 6, the elders said a review of terrorists' activities, banditry and other security threats confronting the nation show that President Buhari has soared higher above the evil forces amassed on the peace and stability of the nation.
The communique co-signed by the national convener, Chief Simon Shango, its national chairman, Alhaji Ari Gwasko, the national secretary Honourable Sam Ode and Chief Mrs. Helen Bendega, women leader, PRONECO said its findings were made after an intensive review and deliberation on “politically-induced insecurities in parts of Nigeria and heat in the polity”.
The elders also said the president has taken the country forward in all ramifications despite artificial incitements of public resentments.
They called on Nigerians to show solidity with the nation's security heads, as only with this can the recent security challenges be subdued.
Speaking on the recent for the sack of the service chiefs by lawmakers of the House of Representatives, the elders said some questionable characters unveiled the manifestation of their insidious plans to finally sink Nigeria in internecine clashes of bloodletting.
The elder further resolved that Nigerians owe themselves the moral obligation to discountenanced such campaigns as cajoling the president to sack the security chiefs.
The communique said: "The meeting noted that what Nigeria is currently experiencing is not the normal Boko Haram or farmers/herder's crisis, but a politically -instigated crises across the country with foreign-backed conspirators to make the country fail and discolour the famed integrity and strong leadership character of President Buhari."
"Nigerians must know that it is our responsibility individually and collectively to team up with security agents in our respective domains to frustrate and put a halt to these acts of evil men determined to blight their future," the communique added.
