A pressure group, the Concerned Advocate for Good Governance (CAGG), has established a Crisis Intervention Committee (CIC) to partner with the Federal Government on solution to Nigeria's security challenges.
Mr Olusegun Bamgbose, the National Coordinator of the group in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Aba, Abia on Monday, said that the security of Nigeria should not be left alone to government.
He said that the members of the committee included lawyers, clergy, lecturers, civil society organisations, traditional rulers, security agencies and the media.
Bamgbose said that the committee planned to produce a position paper to the Federal Government to further curb Boko Haram insurgency and other ethnic militia threatening corporate Nigeria.
"The truth is that the corporate existence of our country is our priority.
"The committee will look at issues critically, objectively and exhaustively and proffer suggestions to help fight insecurity seriously bedevilling the country."
He said that the group equally appealed to Gen. Yakubu Gowon to convene a meeting of the former head of states and Presidents to deliberate on the way out of Nigeria's insecurity.
Bamgbose applauded President Goodluck Jonathan maturity in handling the insecurity in the country so far.
He said that security matter should not be left alone in hands of government to solve.
"All hands must be on deck. It is only a devil that will be happy with what is presently going on in the country, especially in some parts of Northern Nigeria.
He urged the militant groups causing mayhem in the country to cease fire as many innocent Nigerians have lost their lives over their actions.
