Government urged to implement recommendations against terror

05 December 2013, 15:14

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Federal Government to implement the reports of various committees set up to find solutions the security challenges the country is facing.

The call came at the end of the opposition party’s leaders’ meeting in Abuja.

In a communique read by Bisi Akande, Interim National Chairman, the party said the call became necessary because Boko Haram had made life unbearable for most residents of north-east Nigeria.

The communique condemned the recent attacks on military formations in Maiduguri by suspected Boko Haram sect members.

The party urged government to check the incessant attacks on innocent people.

Meanwhile, they called on President Goodluck Jonathan and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to reach a compromise on the ongoing strike by ASUU, in view of its impact on the educational development of the country.

The university staffs have embarked on a lengthy strike protesting salaries and demanding improved working conditions.

Among those who attended the APC leaders meeting include Governors Abiola Ajumobi of Oyo, Ibikunle Amosun, Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers and Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano among others.
