Insecurity in Nigeria caused by politicians- CSOs


Centre for Credible Leadership and Citizens Awareness (CCLCA), who leads 92 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs)has blamed politicians for insecurity in Nigeria.

Nwambu Gabriel, Director-General, CCLCA made this remark at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

Acccording to him, there  was evidence to show that politicians funded the Boko Haram and Niger Delta militants for their personal interests.

“Most government functionaries are here in Abuja dwelling on lofty ideas without being in touch with their constituents or at least creating an avenue for regular engagement.”

He noted that while the president was working hard, some of his ministers indulged in blame games and heaping accusations on his security heads.

Gabriel added that there was a huge disconnect between members of the National Assembly and their constituents.

“In the Senate, most of the Principal Officers dwell more on diversionary issues rather than embark on result oriented legislations targeting job creation for youths and for peace, security and prosperity of Nigeria,” he said
