Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) has urged Nigerians to unite and support the military in defeating terrorism in all parts of the country. APDA National Chairman, Mallam Shitu Kabir Mohammed made the call in Abuja on Wednesday at the opening of the international seminar on humanitarian issues, human rights and the war against insurgency in Nigeria organized by the Save Humanity Advocacy Centre (SHAC). Mohammed was the special guest of honour at the seminar that held in commemoration of Human Rights Day, noted that the war against insurgency has entered a critical phase at which the cooperation of all Nigerians is needed for it to succeed and advance to peace building stage. In a speech titled “Let Security be everybody’s business,” the APDA chairman appealed to Nigerians to see the war on terror in the country as the responsibility of all as he called on citizens to be patriotic and unite against the evil of terrorism that is out to break the country. He decried the activities of NGOs that pretend to be fighting for human rights yet subject the people to the worst form of threat by exposing them to terrorists through reports and statements that place premium on the life and wellbeing of terrorists over that of innocent law-abiding citizens. According to him, “The agents of darkness against the Nigerian state have failed and citizens must begin a process of galvanization to take over the country and assert full control at all levels. “From our appraisal of human rights compliance of the Nigerian military, we can only describe them as friends of humanity because of the way they have defended the weak against the ravages of terrorism,” the chairman noted. He went further to commend the gallant exploits of soldiers who brave the elements day and night to defend the country in the fight to stamp out Boko Haram and other insurgents’ acts of terror from the country. Mohammed called on Nigerians to help authorities in defeating cyber terrorism, which he said has become the alternate strategy of those aiming to destabilize Nigeria. Meanwhile, the APDA chairman has called on the international community to help rebuild the north east of Nigeria with the explanation that the region has suffered severe devastation from terrorism and that rebuilding devastated areas is important to conveying the message that terrorism can never thrive when all concerned are united against it.
