Israel pledges solidarity with Nigeria

02 June 2014, 07:43Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria, Uriel Palti, has condemned the prevalence of terrorism locally, especially the kidnap of over 200 schoolgirls.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, in Yenagoa, Palti called for their immediate release, assuring the government of the support of the state of Israel at putting to an end the acts of terrorism in the country.

He lauded Dickson for his developmental strides in the state and expressed the willingness of his country to collaborate with Bayelsa in the area of security and other sectors of the economy.

The envoy also disclosed that the leadership of his country was looking forward to receiving Dickson on a visit this year.

Dickson described the State of Israel as a dependable force in global affairs.

He called on the country to rally round nations plagued by terror and evil.

He said it is imperative for the Country to lead by example to demonstrate to the world that it was a "Godly" nation.

“Israel as a nation loved by God should also know their God. Israel should lead by example to demonstrate to the world that it is indeed a Godly nation and it must rally other nations of the world to show forth God’s abiding love and faithfulness to a world plagued by terror and evil," said Dickson.

The governor described Bayelsa as a peaceful and preferred investment as well as tourism destination in the continent.

He disclosed that the state was currently partnering with some Israeli businessmen in the area of agriculture.
