    A cross section of the Nigerian populace have profered solution to the unabating insecurity in Nigeria, saying that power must be divested from the center and given to the regions for pervasive insecurity to be surmounted.

    Worried about the untold suffering the menace of kidnapping, banditry, terrorism is causing the Citizens, Daily Newscraft went to town to carry out a thorough survey. Over 80 percent of the respondents opined that the national cake that is all concentrated at the center is what is causing the agitation.
    “Everyone wants to cut from the national cake only very few want to contribute to baking, so let us give to the regions or zones, the template to grow at their own pace and produce what they consume”, Ismail Musa, a private Businessman based in Abuja said in an interview.
    Speaking in the same vein, Chief Fred Akhalame, a Lagos Resident said the center needs to be made less attractive and local governments revitalized.
    “Take the issue of this security we are talking about, for instance. Security is Local and those who perpetuate crimes are not spirits. They lives in our neighborhood. The local Hunters and Vigilante Groups should be empowered to police the Villages and the forests and farmlands”.
    He continues, “We need to empower the rural dwellers and create employment for our teeming youths as another way of stemming the tide of crime and criminality”.
    Senator Ben Murray Bruce while admonishing Leaders on Silver bird Award program monitored by Daily Newscraft stressed the need to give equal opportunity for growth for all Citizens.
    “World Class Boxers, World Class Rappers are mainly from the Ghettos. But when they attain stardom, the Children of the Rich wants to emulate them. If we don’t empower the poor, we the affluent are not safe and that is what you are seeing. Politicians need to change their attitude of winners take it all”.

    Lately, the rate of insecurity in Abuja has become a national emergency. The need to urgent solution cannot be overemphasized.
