Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central at the Senate has revealed what must be done for peace to return to the country.

Insecurity in Nigeria has recently worsened with kidnappers, bandits, armed herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists having a field day.

The Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari as one of its measures to protect lives and properties, is dialoguing with herdsmen believed to be responsible for violent crimes across the country.

The administration has also obtained a radio station to be aired in Fulani language aimed at educating the herders on the need for peaceful co-existence with their host communities.

On its part to tackle the security situation, Katsina State has prescribed death sentence for kidnappers, cattle rustlers, among others.

But weighing in, the Kaduna lawmaker has said the measures taken by the federal and state governments are not the best approach to confront the situation.

The outgoing Senator said for peace to return, the country must be restructured politically and economically.

He said this must be done in accordance with the 2014 national conference report recommendations.

“Death sentence & Radio station for the Fulanis will not fully & permanently address the crisis we face as a nation today,” Sani tweeted on Saturday.

“We must restructure this nation politically and economically in line with recommendations of the past conferences reports, now eaten by termites in our shelves,” he added.

The 2014 national conference was convened by former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Mr Jonathan who lost his re-election bid to Mr Buhari could not implement the recommendations of the report.

The former Nigerian leader while handing over power urged his successor to ensure the report was implemented. The president has since dumped the report in the trash can.
