Senate appeals for global help to tackle Boko Haram



ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA’s upper house of Assembly President, Bukola Saraki, has solicited the assistance of the international community in
ongoing efforts by the Federal Government to end the insurgency in the Northeast.

He said such support would also help bring succour to some 3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the area.

Saraki made the call during separate session with the German Ambassador to Nigeria, Michael Zenner, and his Spanish counterpart, Alfonso Barnudvo Sdbastian De Erice, who paid courtesy visits to him in Abuja.

He stated that the humanitarian situation and level of destruction in the area ravaged by the insurgents require urgent and wide support across the world.

Saraki said having led a delegation of the Senate to visit the IDPs camps in Maiduguri on Monday for an on-the-spot assessment, the Federal
Government alone could not foot the bills for total rehabilitation of the people and rebuilding of infrastructure damaged as a result of the
activities of the insurgents.

“As you talked about insecurity, particularly the insurgency in the North-East, it is a problem that we alone cannot tackle,” said Saraki.

“A large part of the North-East need reconstruction and rehabilitation and I think this is an area where long term funding will play a role to help us in the infrastructure.”

He pointed out the places needed to be rebuilt.

“There are no schools. There are no roads. The houses have been destroyed and I think that the international community can assist us by providing funding that will allow us to begin the rehabilitation and reconstruction of these areas.”

In their separate remarks, Zenner and De Erice pledged close cooperation with the Senate.
