Ceasefire: Rep Urges Sincere Implementation


A member of the National Assembly, Rep. Dakuku Peterside, said on Friday that the ceasefire agreement between the Federal Government and Boko Haram should be done with sincerity.

Peterside, (APC-Andoni/Opobo/Nkoro), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt that the truce was a step in the right direction and a welcome development.

“If the ceasefire is done with sincerity it’s a good development. A good General is one who reviews his strategy from time to time without losing focus of his objective.

“Whereas, we believe that it is good to root out Boko Haram but, we need to review our strategy from time to time,’’ he said.

Peterside said the ceasefire agreement was good but that government should ensure that it was reached with sincerity because the security of the country was very important.

He said insecurity had wreaked havoc in the affected states, stressing that there was need to ensure peace and security in the country.

On the Chibok school girls, Peterside urged the government to ensure that the girls were released and re-integrated with their families without delay.

“The top most priority of government should be the release of the girls. Their abduction should not have happened in the first place. It’s unfair and unjust to have kept them this long.

“Government should ensure that the girls are freed and re-united with their families,’’ he said. (NAN)
