“Security is paramount to the social, economic and political development of the nation, hence the need for the government to give it serious attention,” he said.

“This is not the first time we have been hearing about security challenges along Abuja-Kaduna road and we receive cases every week from that axis. We are drawing the attention of the government to address the security challenges along this road and other unrest in the country to save lives and properties. We advise the government to also pay attention to education, empowerment of the youths and other vital sectors of the economy for national stability and development,” he added.
