Perturbed by the apparent depreciation of democracy in Nigeria, immediate Past Secretary to Delta State Government, Comr. Ovuozourie Macaulay has called for urgent attention and input of national stakeholders to better foster cohesion, security and development.

Macaulay advised politicians and leaders in the country to refrain from politicking at the expense of the security and development of Nigerians.

Reacting in a statement, to a debate by the National Assembly in relation to the falling standard of democracy and the surge of herdsmen insurgency in the country, the veteran labour leader said the country’s nascent democracy was a far cry from the expectations of Nigerians.

He decried and condemned the kidnap of school girls in Dapchi, as well as the recent herdsmen attack in Abraka, Delta State.

According to him, there is no doubt that the nation’s security is currently bedeviled by challenges in contemporary history as the propensity of expansion of violent criminal tendencies have skyrocketed under the country’s democracy.

“Worse is the rapidly menacing violent activities of herdsmen, who maraud the country’s geography, invading people’s farms with their cattle and mercilessly killing men, women and children in their numbers, on any slight challenge by farmers or concerned parties.” He added.
