The Senate President, Senator David Mark, Tuesday assured the Czech Republic Parliament that terrorism would soon become history in Nigeria.
Mark, according to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, told Senate President of Czech Republic, Mr. Milan Stech, and other principal officers of the parliament that the ongoing military operations in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States had the capacity to end terrorism in the North.
“The operation is being handled well and sooner than later terrorism will soon become part of our history. We are conscious that fighting terror is difficult because of factors that dwell on human rights and collateral damages. But the operators of emergency, who have been introduced in the area will bring terrorism to its end.
“This trend became escalated by the situation in Mali, Niger, Libya and Chad but the federal government tried to curtail this through appeal and other carrot approaches but this did not quite succeed until the introduction of emergency rule,” Mark was quoted to have said.
He also charged Super Eagles of Nigeria to leave nothing to chance in the 2014 FIFA World cup qualifier match against the brave warriors of Namibia Wednesday.
The Senate President in a goodwill message in a statement, told Nigerian officials and players in Namibia to give their best to ensure victory, saying otherwise, national pride is at stake.
