Deputy Se­nate Pres­i­dent and Speaker, ECOWAS Par­lia­ment, Sen­a­tor Ike Ek­w­ere­madu, has re­as­sured the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity of the com­mit­ment of the Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion and the ECOWAS to check ter­ror­ism and in­sur­gency from Nige­ria and neigh­bour­ing coun­tries.

A state­ment by his Spe­cial Ad­viser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, said Ek­w­ere­madu gave the as­sur­ance yesterday at a two-day seminar on “Peace, Se­cu­rity, and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment” or­gan­ised by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Euro­pean Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans with Africa (AWEPA) at the Bel­gium Na­tional Par­lia­ment in Brus­sels.

Anichukwu also quoted Ek­w­ere­madu as say­ing that Pres­i­dent Buhari-led Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment had shown “enor­mous will and com­mit­ment to­wards end­ing the twin evils of in­sur­gency and ter­ror­ism.”

He said: “The Pres­i­dent has also given our armed forces till around De­cem­ber to rid the coun­try of these mer­chants of death and they are mak­ing tremen­dous progress to de­liver on this man­date.”
