The Ghali Naaba and Prof Pat Utomi-led pan-Nigerian platform, the National Consultative Front (NCFront), has frowned at what it calls "pervasive killings and anarchy in the country".
In this regards, the NCFront
says it is ready to hold an urgent parley of leaders of conscience to prevent civil war in Nigeria.
It is also planning to address the nation in Abuja next week Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
The political movement made this known in a statement issued earlier today and made available to News Express.
The statement headlined, "State of the Nation: As Nigeria bleeds" and signed by its Head, Public Affairs Bureau, Dr Tanko Yunusa reads:
"The National Consultative Front, NCFront of Leaders of Conscience; co chaired by Rt Hon Ghali Naaba and Prof Pat Utomi, is compelled to address the Nation on the pervasive killings, kidnappings, wanton destructions of public assets and general insecurity in Nigeria.
"As a concerned pan Nigerian platform, the NCFront has commenced wide range engagements and consultations with national stakeholders and leaders of conscience, as it has become expedient for the Front to provide the missing leadership by intervening in the fragile and frightening situation of the country appropriately.
"To this end, we wish to appeal to all Nigerians to remain calm and prayerful in the interest of the peace, harmony and stability of our dear country as the ongoing consultations among leaders of conscience across the six geo political zones of the country enters the final phase.
"Consequently, as a major national platform of leaders of conscience as well as the conscience of the country, the NCFront is billed to address the nation early next week on its agenda to save and rescue Nigeria from the precipice of anarchy and civil war.
"In the meantime, the Front will like all Nigerians to note that no blood of any soul is worth spilling for any cause or agitation.
