In a bid to eradicate transnational crime in Africa, the United Nation says it is ready to partner Nigeria’s Interior Ministry to restore peace and stability in the country.
This was disclosed on Thursday in Abuja at the Ministry of interior office, when the Representative of the UN Secretary General, Dr. Mohammed Chambas, paid a courtesy visit to the newly appointed minister.
Chambas, while stating his mission, explained that transnational crime, such as drug trafficking, human trafficking and terrorism has eaten deep into West African and other countries. He said his mission is to ensure peace is brought back to Nigeria, adding that the UN is trying everything possible to achieve stability.
“We always seek to work with ministry incharge of internal affairs to ensure law and order; we look forward to work with interior ministry. Nigeria has always has a special case in Africa, Nigeria is a member of the current UN Security council, so we are here to support”, he said.
“We want to be in full support with Nigeria at this particular time of terror insecurity. The whole world has witness international terror when Paris was hit recently, it is a big fight, and terrorism is an international phenomenon that needs to be fought”.
In his remark, Interior minister, Abdulrahman Dambuazzau, acknowledged that the country is facing security challenges that need urgent attention, just as he called on all service chiefs under the ministry to seat up and make their job a priority.
