In view of the rippling effect on global peace, displacements of people, and rising poverty, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has tasked the United Nations (UN) to be more practical in supporting Nigeria in the fight against terrorism.
According to a statement, by Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), President Tinubu stated that the UN Charter — and not charity — must support future partnerships.
In an audience with the Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations Office on Counter-Terrorism, Vladimir Voronkov, at the State House on Thursday, August 31, the President noted that terrorism had consistently reversed the gains on development and increased instability in families and communities, but that UN cooperation in dealing with it had always been inconsistent.
Nigeria’s concerns are certainly valid given the number of coups in Africa. Niger, a neighbour of Nigeria, ousted their President just last month.
