Atunwa appeals for more efforts against terror

01 October 2015, 07:44Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Razak Atunwa, the Member, House of Representatives for Ilorin West, call for concerted efforts to counter terrorism in Nigeria.

Speaking ahead of Independence Day, he said insecurity remained a threat to national progress.

"Even as I commend the Nigerian Army in their fight against terrorists in affected areas of the country, I call for more counter-terrorism approach in undermining terrorism in Nigeria."

He said priority must be given to families in IDPs across the country.

Atunwa said the government and the international community should readily afford affected people the basic necessities of life, particularly accommodation, healthcare and economic empowerment to recover from what they lost.

He meanwhile said economic reform was important for the country.

If implemented well, it would improve tax revenues for government, provide more jobs for Nigerians, and create wealth to build infrastructure.

He said stakeholders must equally give a consensus support to the laudable anti-corruption agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari to eliminate corruption, tax evasion and other related crimes.

"Our collective decision today can safeguard the future generations. As Nigeria marks her 55th year of Independence, let's give uniform commitment to nation building today, for a better tomorrow."
