National Institute of Legislative and Democratic Studies Calls For African Unity on Terrorism

African parliamentarians have been charged to come up with relevant laws that will stem the menace of insecurity across the continent.

Former minister of National Planning and current Director General of the National Institute of Legislative and Democratic Studies  (NILDS),  Prof. Abubakar Sulaiman, made the call on Tuesday while playing host to a delegation from the Ethiopian Oromia Regional Parliament led by the Speaker, Seada Abdurahman.

Prof Suleiman noted that there is no country in Africa that is not experiencing insecurity in one form or the other.

“We are facing a lot of challenges bothering on terrorism; issues of economic growth and development; a lot of people are jobless and issues of unemployed youths, out-of-school children and starvation.

“Within the context of Afrocentric policy, the era of looking onto our colonial powers has gone. We must device African solution to African problems,” Sulaiman said.
