With the lingering security challenges and the inability of the security apparatus of the government to guarantee safety and security in the country, the question that borders everyone in Nigeria today is that “can there be security?” Is security of lives and properties achievable?_

It is ABILA 2021 belief that security is equal to stability and continuity of livelihood (stable and steady income), predictability of daily life (knowing what to expect), protection from crime (feeling safe), and freedom
from psychological harm (safety or protection from emotional stress which results from the assurance or knowing that one is wanted, accepted, loved and protected in one’s community or neighbourhood and by people
around, It focuses on emotional and psychological sense of belonging to a social group which can offer one protection).

Insecurity on the other hand is the antithesis of security. However, because of the very many ways in which insecurity affects human life and existence, the concept of insecurity has usually been ascribed different interpretations in association with the various ways which it affects individuals. Some of the common descriptors of insecurity include: want of safety; danger; hazard; uncertainty; want of confidence; doubtful; inadequately
guarded or protected; lacking stability; troubled; lack of protection; and unsafe, to mention a few.

As a team {YAJCO-ABILA CREW} that is well informed about happenings in the society, the security situation in Nigeria, Lagos and by extension to our local council (the recent Hausa Okada riders/Alabarago and Students uproar inclusive) appears or at least have remained insurmountable and many people have argued that government at all levels has not done enough by not confronting the situation head on and dealing with it decisively, others have argued that the situation has a political undertone or inclination calculated to serve the interest of certain political gods, who
have been dissatisfied and disgruntled about the political manifestations in the country.

To tackle insecurity, we identify that the key starting point should be to understand the causes of insecurity, which we’ve diligently done at YAJCO-ABILA CREW due to inIestigation made concerning their sources of social disorder and instability they are but not limited to:

√ _Lack of institutional capacity resulting in government failure_

√ _Pervasive material inequalities and unfairness_

√ _Ethno-religious conflicts_

√ _Conflict of Perceptions between the public and government_

√ _Weak Security system_

√ _Loss of Socio-cultural and communal value system_

√ _Rural /Urban Drift_

√ _Unemployment/Poverty_

√ _Terrorism_

“Our challenges are not new, The instrument with which we meet them may be new, But those values upon which our success depends are hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism, these things are old, They will be the quick force of progress throughout our history, what is demanded then is a return to these truths. YAJCO-ABILA 2021

Hon. Yisa Jubril Abiola p.k.a ABILA appeal to all and sundry to please join hands together with us to attain the greater height for our dear local council.

With Hon. Yisa Abiola Jubril popularly known as Abila, a new Iba LCDA that works for all is imminent and assured.
