Insurgency: Taraba acting governor orders for more volunteers

11 December 2014, 21:48

Taraba - Sani Danladi, the Acting Governor of Taraba, on Wednesday directed ministries and parastatals in the state to engage volunteers to tackle security challenges.

Danladi gave the directive in Jalingo at the passing out parade of 300 cadets of the United Nigeria Chaplaincy.

The acting governor, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Gebon Kataps, said the state government had resolved to work closely with organisations set up to promote peace and prosperity in the state.

Danladi said some 'unscrupulous bad elements' in the state had been using religion to divide the people instead of uniting them.

He, however, commended the Chaplaincy for its peace initiative, saying that government would support the organisation to achieve its objective.

Earlier, the Regional Commander of the Chaplaincy, Leonard Stephen, said the organisation was established to initiate dialogue with restive groups, moral instructions to military and paramilitary organisations and to checkmate cultism and moral decadence in schools.

He said membership of Chaplaincy cuts across religious beliefs, the old and the young as well as the rich and the poor.
