Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has called on the Federal Government and the military to rise up to their responsibilities and find a lasting solution to the problem of insecurity and insurgency in the country.
In a statement by PENGASSAN President, Francis Johnson, the association decried the level of insecurity, especially the killings by the Boko Haram insurgents in the North Eastern part of the country.
“Attacks on the Northern part of the country and killings of innocent Nigerians have been on the increase and taken a new dimension since the government announced the controversial ceasefire pact with the Boko Haram,” observed Johnson.
He therefore called on the government to do its best to contain the activities of the sect.
Johnson also described the killing of students in Potiskum as barbaric. He therefore called on the government to use all its might to deal with the situation and ensure that Nigeria was a safe place to live.
