Delta Premier appeals for citizens' support in terror fight

22 April 2014, 07:33Augustine Osayande

Abuja – Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has challenged citizens in the country to complement government's effort at fighting insecurity.

He urged them to be vigilant about strange movements and personalities in their environs.

The governor also tasked parents to take responsibility towards moulding the character of their children and dissuading them from engaging in criminal activities.

He condemned the recent bombing of the Nyanya Motor Park in Abuja and the abduction of female students’ at Government Secondary School Chibok in Borno State.

The governor noted that the Federal and State Governments were doing their best to deal with the rising insecurity.

According to him, the citizenry and parents also had tremendous roles to play in stemming the rising insecurity.

He said there was the compelling need for people to be watchful and vigilant.

He also admitted that Delta State was facing the challenge of herdsmen whose activities have prevented some farmers from going to their farms, but observed,  "We are taking measures to deal with those issues."

He said the state government would in the coming days take drastic measures to curtail the excesses of herdsmen.

"Those who will come and will not make us comfortable, we will not allow to stay. Those who will come and will give us problem we will not allow them to stay. So when you see me acting, please know that whoever you see me taking that action against is somebody that I am not comfortable with coming to stay in our midst.

"These are very trying times. Yes there is much the government can do. But there is a lot you can do as parents. What role are you playing as a parent," the governor said.
