In the past 9-10 months there have been several cases of bomb blasts in
From the bomb blast that killed 12 in the capital city, Abuja close to the
the celebration of the 50th independence anniversary of our country on the
October 2010 to several other cases and reports of bomb blasts across the
It is simply a case of undiluted hatred for the present administration
is labeled as Nigeria's only hope of getting it right. All these bombings
linked to an Islamic Group called the Boko Haram.
The boko haram, a group from the north against anything and everything
western, is a
deadly cabal whose aim is to disrupt and create chaos within the Jonathan
administration. The tension and palpable fear created in Nigeria by this
once again, thrown the nation into a deep pit of poisoned chalice and
The security and lives of the Nigerian people is now at risk as there is
impenetrable for this deadly group after the attack on the police
It is now a matter of immediacy and urgency that the Government should
step up to
this group of misled young men and fish out the conspirators aiding and
their cause by sponsoring them as it is evident that the matter is more of a
political issue than a religious issue.
The government should also look into the welfare of those young men being
into tools for selfish execution. If they are well empowered and employed,
mindset and energy will be geared towards the upliftment of this nation.
In times like this and due to things like this, the government should
invest more in
agricultural products in both the rural and urban regions. This step would
create the availability of food stuffs and even as far as more jobs to keep
youths from being idle which I strongly believe is the course of most of them
joining such terrorist groups as the Boko Haram.
Therefore, as a member of Change Nigeria Group, I strongly support the
Food Not Bombs NGO volunteers, who are already providing food in more than ten
Nigeria. They are connected to a global network of Food Not Bombs
activists that are
experienced in providing food to the hungry and are knowledgeable about
nonviolent social change.
It is a good cause that will bring about rural peace and development which
will in turn reduce the level of induction into violent groups.
