The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has asked Nigerians to support the Federal Government in sustaining the peace in the country.

Mustapha made this request during a breakfast meeting with businessmen in Abuja on Saturday.

He said, “The citizens have a major role to play in securing peace in this nation. Government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility.”

While alleging that politicians were arming youths to ferment trouble towards the 2019 general elections, he said, the current administration has done well to improve the electoral process in the country.

“Things are changing with the improvement in the electoral processes. But in the past, early in the morning, somebody will just come out with one rifle and shoot a gun in the air (so) everybody takes cover and then he packs all the electoral materials. There are constituencies where you never voted. It is a collective responsibility,” he added.
