How to stop ter­ror­ism, by PDP youth leader

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Romoke W. Ah­mad

The Na­tional Youth Leader of the People’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) Com­rade Ab­dul­lahi Maibasira has called for an ef­fec­tive in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing which he said would avert sub­se­quent at­tempts to bomb­ing in the coun­try.

Maibasira stated this in Abuja while con­dol­ing with fam­i­lies of the vic­tims of last Mon­day’s bomb at­tack in Nyanya, a sub­urb of Abuja.

At least 75 were killed in the ex­plo­sion and over 100 in­jured.

Maibasira said only ex­ten­sive in­tel­li­gence cov­er­age would pre­vent fur­ther at­tacks.

“Govern­ment at all lev­els must as a mat­ter of ur­gency re­spond by em­pow­er­ing the people to build them­selves ac­cord­ingly in ad­di­tion to en­sur­ing that there is in-depth and ex­ten­sive in­tel­li­gence cov­er­age,” he said.

The PDP youth leader said state and lo­cal gov­ern­ments should com­ple­ment the ef­forts of the federal govern­ment in pro­vid­ing ad­e­quate em­pow­er­ment pro­grammes to ad­dress the men­ace of youth restive­ness.

He how­ever urged Nige­rian youths to de­sist from any act ca­pa­ble of trun­cat­ing the unity of the coun­try, say­ing the youth pop­u­la­tion has the bur­den of re­shap­ing the coun­try’s fu­ture.
