Former Senate President David Mark has urged Nigerian politicians to stop paying lip service to the country’s challenges. 

Mr Mark made the call in a statement by his Media Adviser, Paul Mumeh, on Saturday in Abuja, to commemorate this year’s Easter celebration.

He noted that the state of insecurity in the country had led to loss of countless number of lives, created socio economic malaise and political uncertainty.

“It’s a disservice to humanity to pay lip service to the challenges or pretend that all is well when the socio economic and political life of the nation is almost comatose.

“We need to pause and ponder about the state of the nation and find solution going forward,” he said.

He urged the federal government to open doors for fresh ideas adding that it was not the exclusive preserve of government to find solutions to security challenges.

Mr Mark added that the current security challenges were not about political parties, religious or ethnic affiliations but about the survival of our nation.

“Those in positions of authority should be honest enough to admit that things are wrong and be prepared to lead the way towards finding solutions.

“I believe we can fix Nigeria again if we resolve to work together in an atmosphere of honesty and mutual respect for one another,” he said.

He urged religious leaders across the country to always preach the message of peace, hope and harmonious relationship between and among adherents.

The former senate president prayed that the peace, reconciliation and forgiveness which the season of Easter brings should envelop the nation henceforth.
