Delta charges National Assembly to resume plenary due to insecurity
Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday, admonished members of the National Assembly to end their recess and support stakeholders in finding lasting solutions to the insecurity plaguing the country.
Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu, who spoke on behalf of the governor, gave the charge in Asaba, the state capital, insisting that the call became necessary in view of the worsening security situation in the country.
He noted that all tiers of government should collaborate and close ranks in making the country safer for the masses and unsafe for those working against the peace and development of Nigeria.
While saying that there was the need to seek foreign assistance in the fight against insurgency, Boko Haram and armed herdsmen, Okowa commended the southern governors for the 12-point communiqué that had provided a road map for building a new Nigeria where peace would reign.
He said on the ban of open grazing, the southern governors would initiate laws through their houses of Assembly to enforce it to restore peace and order in communities where armed herders have sacked people from their homes and farmlands.
Okowa said ranching was the best compared to nomadic system of rearing cattle, stressing that the challenge of food security was traceable to incessant herder, farmer clashes.
