The Federal Government of Nigeria has flagged-off a stakeholders’ engagement on internal security and conflict resolution as part of efforts to bring an end to security challenges across the country.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, flagged off the meeting in Maiduguri, Borno State capital on Tuesday, according to a statement by the ministry’s Director (Press & Public Relations), Mohammed Manga.

While calling on Nigerians to support the President Muhammadu Buhari led-administration in its efforts at exterminating insurgency that is making living of ordinary Nigerians difficult and miserable, he said the government was ready to tap into the knowledge of the people in achieving this.

The Minister said that government had renewed its stand to do whatever is necessary to stamp out insecurity from all parts of the country, expressing optimism that the aim was achievable.

Also speaking at the opening ceremony, the Executive Governor of Borno State, Professor Babagana Zulum, assured that the government and people of Borno State would continue to support the efforts of the federal government in its determination to ensuring the restoration of peace and security in the state.

He thanked the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Administration for liberating a substantial part of the State and the Northeast from the grip of the insurgents, adding that some time ago, 23 of the 27 local government areas of the State were under the firm control of the insurgents but for the concerted efforts of the Federal Government in calling for the military’s intervention, the situation had been reversed.

In his remarks, His Eminence, the Shehu of Borno, Alh. Abubakar Ibin Umar Garba, pledged the support of the traditional rulers to the Federal Government in its efforts towards finding lasting peace and security in all parts of the country.
