Major General Theophilus Danjuma, a former Chief of Defence Staff, has said that Nigeria’s security challenges have made the country become an object of pillory and a disgrace to the world.

While speaking at the annual Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural Festival in Ibbi local government area of Taraba State on Friday, Danjuma said that urgent steps must be taken to tackle the perennial security challenges facing the country.

Danjuma who was the chairman of the occasion expressed concern that Nigeria has become a theatre of absurdities that leaves a bitter taste in the minds of people globally.

The army chief however, called on Nigerians to save the nation’s reputation at the global terrain.

He said, ” I want to warn you that if you truly want this festival to be an international festival we must put our house in order and ensure peace in Taraba and Nigeria.

“There is no sane foreign person that will come to Nigeria to celebrate with us if we continue to kill each other if we continue to butcher each other and make our roads unsafe for people to move around.

“As we are today in Nigeria, we are a disgrace to the whole world. The whole country is at a war front of people against our people.

“We must put our own house in order because right now we are a laughing stock to the whole world. We must stop killing each other. We must make our roads safe, our homes safe, and stop kidnapping. May Almighty God continue to be with us as we try to put our house in order.

“Let us renew our commitment to promoting peace, and harmony and celebrate the bonds that unite us as one family. May this occasion be a reminder of who we are and the strength that lies in our unity.

“We must put our own house in order and have peace in our state and throughout the country if we want this to be truly an international festival.”
