Nigeria: Terrorism - Nigeria Seeks Review of Int'l Regulations

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged the African, Caribbean and Pacific group of states to review existing international regulations in its bid to address terrorism and armed conflict among member nations.

Osinbajo's spokesman, Laolu Akande, yesterday quoted him as speaking while receiving a delegation of ACP comprising its Chairman, Ambassador Amadou Diop; and the Secretary-General, Dr Patrick Gomes, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday.

Commending the leadership of the group for the work done so far, the vice president pledged to convey their message to President Muhammadu Buhari.

"Prof Osinbajo, however, emphasised the need for the group to review existing international regulations as it strives to address challenges of terrorism and armed conflict within ACP member -nations ," Akànde said. He also quoted Osinbajo as asking member -nations to remain united in pursuit of the organisation's objectives.

"Nigeria remains firmly in support of the ACP because we have benefited so much from the organisation. But I also want to emphasise the need for us to stay together," he said.
