Envoy urges unity against terrorism

02 October 2014, 18:29

Abidjan - Nigeria’s Ambassador to Cote d’Ivoire, Ifeoma Akabogu-Chinwuba, on Wednesday called on Nigerians to stand united in the fight against terrorism.

Akabogu-Chinwuba made the call in Abidjan on the occasion of Nigeria’s 54th Independence Anniversary.

She said that the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration required the collective inputs and support of Nigerians from all tribes and religions to win the fight against terrorism.

According to her, the government has demonstrated enough political will to tackle terrorism and to ensure that Nigerians enjoy peace.

"The efforts being made by the government will yield quicker results if we all stand together and play our individual roles to stamp out violence.

"It is an issue that affects our lives, our children and our economy, we need not play politics with it, we need to support the government,’’ she said.

Akabogu-Chinwuba further called on Nigerians to engage in acts that will strengthen the unity of the country as intended by her founding fathers.

"Nigeria is a great and indivisible country, as citizens, we owe our country a duty to defend its unity.

"For those of us living outside the country, we need to behave in a manner that even citizens of our host country will see that we are patriotic,’’ she said.
