The Bauchi chapter of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has backed calls for the declaration of bandits as terrorists.
Supporting the stance of the Senate, House of Representatives and Speakers House of Assemblies, who have made the call in the past, the association advised the Federal Government to do the needful to curb banditry.
Its Bauchi State chairman, Alhaji Sadik Ibrahim Ahmad, who spoke with the Nation on Sunday, said: ” As far as I am concerned, the nail must be hit on the head, who are the terrorists? Terrorists are people who try to destroy legitimate activities of society, they are not productive if the FG is serious, they should do the needful and provide a lasting solution to incessant killings by the so-called bandits.”
On zoning among political parties ahead of the 2023 general elections, he said that the masses should be allowed to choose their leaders irrespective of tribes.
“Whether you’re Yoruba, Hausa or Igbo, once you are competent, you should be qualified enough to lead the country. The issue of zoning cannot be and will never be a democratic process.
” People should go for leaders with integrity If we want to unite ourselves. Our leaders are the ones creating problems, confusion, and regional crises among us,” he argued.
