The Governor of Adamawa state, Muhammadu Bindow has cautioned residents of the state, especially parents to warn their children against joining any form of barbaric groups that can lead to terrorism.
Bindow said this in a program organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria program (CAN) to mark the Independence Day which was celebrated in low-key because of insecurity reasons.
The governor who revealed this through his Deputy, Martin Nasir Babale, who represented him at the event.
He said: “This occasion is celebrated in yet another moment of trials resulting from the dwindling nature of our economy and the unfortunate inhuman attacks of Boko Haram Insurgency confronting our dear state and the entire North-East Region. The Low-key celebration calls for sober reflection and more prayers for the state and the nation.
“Brothers and sisters, while we turn our attention on the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement of our people, who have been ravaged by this unfortunate development. In order to move our state forward, we must find a way to prevent our young people from turning into terror and terror activities in the first place.
The young people who turn into extremism do not exist in a vacuum they are part of our communities and families, who have been lured into the fold of barbaric and nihilistic organisations, somehow, through misguided appeal to their worst fears, expectations and indeed apparent frustration.
Bindow also assured the Christian gathering of his commitment to good governance towards providing the needs of the people of the state by running an accountable and transparent government.
