The natives of Bwatiye in Adamawa State, North Eastern Nigeria has appealed to the Federal Government to re-double its efforts in addressing the restiveness of the dreaded Boko Haram militants.
The appeal was made in a Communique’ issued Tuesday at the end of a stakeholders meeting with the representatives from the six geo-political zones of the country in Jos, the Plateau state capital.
The communique which was made available to AFRICAN EXAMINER urged the Federal Government to continue to do all within its power to restore normalcy in all the troubled communities in the North-East.
It reads in part, “The meeting expressed serious concern over the security challenges in the North-East zone of the country, especially the plight of the abducted Chibok girls.
“It urged the Federal Government to re-double its efforts at addressing the security challenges and the release of the Chibok girls.
The statement also viewed with grave concern, lack of unity resulting to social, economic and political setback of the Bwatiye community of Adamawa.
The communique therefore called for a genuine reconciliation in the terrorized enclave, which was the reason for constituting a committee.
The indigenes have been in meantime called upon “to engage in value re-orientation, embark on specific programmes and projects aimed at empowering men, women and youths in Bwatiye land”.
