– SENDS HIS HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY & GOVERNMENT OF ADAMAWA STATE.
– APPEALS TO LEADERS TO ALWAYS GUARD THEIR UTTERANCES ON SENSITIVE ISSUES, IN THE INTEREST OF THE NATION & HER PEOPLE.
– CALLS FOR WHOLISTIC INVESTIGATION TO UNRAVEL THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE MURDER OF THE POLITICIAN.
Former governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial Zone, Senator Rochas Okorocha has outrightly condemned the unfortunate murder of one of the front row politicians in this country, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, describing his death, as unfortunate and disheartening.
Senator Okorocha has also sent his heartfelt condolences to the family of Alhaji Gulak and to the government of Adamawa State, over the death of the politician, explaining that, the nation at large and Adamawa State in particular, have lost a very vibrant politician.
He regretted that politics has in recent time, been allowed to eat deep into the fabric of the nations life, so much so that, when certain situations like the death of Gulak arise, leaders would foot-drag over what they should have ordinarily done or say, because of the needless political colourations some leaders have chosen to give to every incident.
Okorocha appealed to leaders and stakeholders, to always guard their utterances on sensitive issues, to avoid jeopardizing efforts being made by genuine leaders to stop the ugly story of insecurity in the Country, adding that, leaders should show their commitment to the campaign against insecurity through their utterances, actions and inactions.
Senator Okorocha calls for unmitigated investigation to unravel the motive or circumstances surrounding the killing of Gulak, adding that, the Inspector-General of Police should take over the investigation to ensure that a thorough job is done.
Okorocha regretted the spate of killings across the nation including his home State Imo, that had been peaceful before now, stating that, where the use of force or use of arms has failed, diplomacy, dialogue and God-given wisdom can be deployed.
He remarked that anybody or any leader trying to score cheap political point or gain, out of these killings, should be seen as very unpatriotic and called on such people to help the nation, by having a rethink, adding that the lives of Nigerians can not be equated with political gains.
