- A group of organisations have called for collaboration between Nigerians and the troops fighting insurgency in the northeast region
- The group also called on the police and other security agencies to provide actionable intelligence for the troops
- According to the group, the president and his service chiefs would need the total support of all Nigerians to deliver absolute peace across the country
A group of community-based organisations in Nigeria has condemned the calls for the sack of Nigeria's service chiefs in some quarters.
The organisations under the aegis of People’s Parliament vowed to sustain its total support for President Muhammadu Buhari's administration and the service chiefs in the fight against insurgency in the northeast region.
In a communique signed by George Gondo and Adamu Bagudu, the organisation's chairman and secretary respectively, the organisation said President Buhari and the service chiefs have demonstrated capacity, willpower and the expertise to rid the country of terrorism, banditry and other crimes
Addressing journalists in Abuja, a member of the organisation, Gabriel Agibi on Wednesday, June 24, said the president and his service chiefs would need the total support of all Nigerians to deliver absolute peace across the country.
The People's Parliament also called on state governors and stakeholders to play their own part, as all hands must be on deck to defeat the remnants of the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists.
The organisation said it overwhelmingly passed a vote of confidence on President Buhari and his security architecture to defeat the insurgency ravaging Nigeria.
Further advising the already decimated Islamic fighters to surrender now they have the chance, the organisation called on security agencies charged with investigations and intelligence gathering to step up their game.
The communique in its recommendation urged the agencies to provide actionable intelligence to troops so as to complement what the military is doing at the battlefield.
"The military should not relent or be discouraged by the current setback in Gubio and Faskari Local Governments of Borno and Katsina states respectively but sustain the push against the remnants of the terrorist groups until they are defeated," the organisation said.
