The Speaker stated this in Kaduna at the end of a two day conference on the “North and Strategies for Sustainable Development,” organised by the Arewa House, Centre for Historical Documentation and Research, Ahmadu Bello University.
“Our problem is the failure of governments in the past to do what they ought to have done and that is why we are here and the solution to it is what we are here to discuss and I believe very soon, we would come to the roots of the problems and find solutions to it.
“Should we accept to commit ourselves to change our situation, we can do it but we need our innermost resolve to achieve that,” Tambuwal said.
According to him, “we must rise beyond the occasion of discussions and agree to take practical steps to do things about our governance. We can do it.
We can make a difference, so let us do it.”
“The period of mediation is over we should take charge of our community and re-orient and redirect ourselves and our children towards what is right which we can only do if we are disciplined. We have to begin the purification exercise and strengthen our institutions,” Tambuwal added.
