President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed optimism that terrorism in Nigeria will be eradicated. The president made this reassurance while declaring open the First Regional Conference on Terrorism, with the theme: “Containing terrorism in West African Sub-Region”, in Abuja on Monday.

Represented by Vice President Namadi Sambo, the president said the Federal Government was working at providing adequate security for all residents of the country. According to him, there was the need for a synergy between Nigeria and foreign stakeholders in the fight against terrorism.

He continues: “The scourge of terrorism will be eradicated as we remain committed to providing adequate security to the citizens and foreign nationals residing in the country… There is a need to strengthen multi-national collaboration with countries in the sub-region in the fight against terrorism… The time could not have been more appropriate, given the current security challenges in the country,” the president said.

He added that the Boko Haram sect had transformed from what it used to be at its inception in 2009 to a level of carrying out large scale coordinated attacks. According to him, the government was building the capacity of security agencies to handle the upsurge while it would also focus on ensuring the rule of law in its operations.

  1. The best and quickest way to introduce terrorism in a country like this is the path the government has chosen to trade on. Not providing employments to the people can degenerate to the point of higher terrorism. Many of the youths who shuld have been busy somewhere doing something are here idle. And the consequenses of that culd be so volatile in the development of the country. I just can’t understand what it will take to government of a country to provide jobs for her teaming population. Is that too difficult and unachievable? Those who have patriotic and clear mind in the country are been encouraged by the government attitude to join terrorism because an idle mind is a devil’s workshop.
