A former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), says the country is presently at a crossroad with the myriad security challenges.
The former head of state said this in Kaduna during the annual award dinner organized by the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation to honour some Nigerians for their contributions to the society.
Abdulsalami said Nigerians must join hands to eradicate the menace of insecurity.
Among those honoured by the foundation were the former Head of State, Gen Yakubu Gowon (retd), who got leadership award and Justice Fati Lami Abubakar, wife of Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, who received an award for Public Service and Administration of Justice.
Abdulsalami said: “With the present security challenges ranging from banditry, kidnapping, and terrorism, I will say Nigeria is at a crossroad.
“We should, therefore, try as much as possible to give information and intelligence reports to the security agencies for timely action.
“We will always pray for peace and I am appealing to all Nigerians to put all hands on deck to eradicate this menace of insecurity currently threatening the peace of the country.”
