Do not enter the forest yourself to fight gunmen” – Dr. Abdullahi Mahuta’s message to Katsina State Governor Dikko Radda
Northern Continent has seen a text posted by Dr. Abdullahi I Mahuta on his Facebook page in which he advised Katsina State Governor Malamzi Diko Rada Dikko Raddda) do not go into the forest to fight the bandits targeting him. This is what he said;
I write this because the Honorable Governor was recently interviewed on BBC Radio. In this interview, the governor emphasized his intention to follow the security forces into the forest and join him in the fight against these terrorists.
Anyone who thinks of the steps Dr. Dicko Lada has begun to take so far to end the security problem in Katsina State, I don’t think there is any doubt about his intentions and commitment.
That’s why I called the governor and reminded him, sir, you should not take up arms and go into the forest; that is not befitting of a leader. Sayida Abubakar is reported to have said that “the driving force of a country is the wisdom of its elders and the strength of its youth.”
Now all you have to do is use the knowledge, wisdom, and skills God has given you to find and plan a solution to this problem, just as you are starting to do now. The actual implementation in Amman; the actual implementation of forest warfare, which is a special training for teenagers and other security personnel.
Sir, if you are in the army, at the age of 55, you will become a general. Generals do not participate in wars. They remain in the command center and coordinate what happens in the field.
We understand your passion for your people; we share your concerns, but please don’t go into the woods right away. We know the promise you made during the campaign that you would personally enter the forest, so I forgive that promise.
May God put an end to this problem in our country.
