EU worried at escalating Nigeria crisis

14 April 2016, 21:43

Lagos – The European Parliament has urged member states to assist in what it termed the worsening security and human rights situation in Nigeria.

Parliament said EU and its member states should supply political, developmental and humanitarian assistance as development had been held back by “poor economic governance, weak democratic institutions and massive inequality.”

While welcoming the peaceful transition of power toPresident Muhammadu Buhari in March 2015, Members of the European Parliament remained “deeply”

concerned by “dramatically" escalating violence in Nigeria, where it said years of military dictatorship, corruption, political instability and poor governance continued to undermine social and economic rights and six out of 10 Nigerians subsist on US$ 2, or less, a day.

“Nigeria, Africa's largest economy, has the potential to be an economic and political powerhouse," the Parliament stated from Brussels, Belgium.

The legislative body issued a security alert on Honduras, Nigeria and Pakistan.

The Parliament urged Nigerian and the international community to secure the release not only of the Chibok girls abducted exactly two years ago.

Fifteen were allegedly shown to be alive in a video the Boko Haram posted on Wednesday.

Parliament also called for the release of 400 women and children abducted from the town of Damasak in November 2014.

Chibok and Damask are in Borno State, which has suffered the most from the terror by the Islamic militant Boko Haram.
