Action Congress of Nigeria Presidential candidate in the 2011 general elections, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, on Thursday, declared support for the state of emergency recently pronounced by President Goodluck Jonathan in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.

ribadu-report-bnRibadu also urged Nigerians, especially residents of the affected states, to “stand by” the military personnel deployed to the volatile states.

Ribadu spoke with newsmen at the national consultative meeting on roles of religious leaders and traditional rulers in building a culture of peace, national unity and integration organized by the global peace foundation yesterday in Abuja.

The former anti-graft chief said, “Personally, I believe that any initiative in that direction is a good one. The Federal Government has the responsibility of ensuring peace in the country. This is because nobody else could have law enforcement for security like the Federal Government.

“For now, all Nigerians must stand by our own military. This is what happens all over the world. When you are confronted with difficulties people must come together and unite. It is not the time for us to divide ourselves.

“However, the only thing that we want is to see it done properly and correctly with respect for rights of individuals instead of creating more problems for ourselves.”
