NUSA Urges FG To Sustain Fight Against Insecurity

The Nigerian Community in South Africa has urged the Federal Government to sustain its efforts at curtailing insecurity, banditry and abductions as the country marked 22 years of uninterrupted democracy.

The community, under the aegis of Nigeria Union South Africa (NUSA),
made the appeal on Saturday as they joined fellow Nigerians at home
and abroad to mark this year’s Democracy Day.

“It’s been 22 years when our country returned to civil rule and there
is a need to celebrate the uninterrupted change of administrations
since then.

“The Nigerian Union South Africa urges the Federal government not to
relent in meeting some of the challenges facing the nation.

“Top on the list are insecurity, banditry and abductions. All efforts
to stop these vices should be sustained until victory is achieved,’’
it said in a statement by the NUSA President, Adetola Olubajo.

“We also urge the government to sustain policies that have made
Nigeria not to be among countries with high COVID-19 cases and deaths.
“NUSA is happy that COVID-19 cases in our country are not on the rise
and this should be sustained.

“We equally recommend that measures aimed at boosting the nation’s
economy and not allowing it to go down should be implemented.

“The Nigerian community in South Africa has been law-abiding, obeying
all rules and regulations of our host country,’’ Olubajo said.

He added that NUSA would continue to sensitise Nigerians living in
South Africa to stay away from crime or issues that would harm them
and tarnish the image of the country.

“We pledge to continue to contribute to our country’s democracy and
good governance.’’ (End)
