In his remarks, Al Makura, currently the Nasarawa South Senator, decried the security situation in the North-Central.

"Our zone has always been known as the home of tourism, harmony, and solid minerals; the confluence of the two major rivers in the country, the food basket of the nation.

“Unfortunately, various acts of lawlessness have affected peace. We cannot sit back and watch these developments without taking action”, he stressed.

Ahmed noted that even Kwara, which is generally regarded as relatively safe, was witnessing incidents of banditry.

"Once forewarned, a wise cripple will not be caught up in the thick of battle”, he said.

Mantu, in his contribution, explained that the NCPF is totally apolitical and only interested in the wellbeing of the people.
