NSA's visits Jos

The newly appointed National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, says his office will do all within its powers to restore maximum peace in Plateau state.

The National Security Adviser, who gave the assurance during his visit in Jos, Plateau state, as part of his on-the-spot assessment of security situation in the state, urged stakeholders to cooperate with one another to enthrone a peaceful plateau.

In his remarks, Governor Jonah Jang thanked the security chief for the visit but regretted that dialogue, which is one of the solutions to end the insurgents of the boko haram sect, is not reachable because members of the sect are not known.

Governor Jang, however, urged stakeholders and relevant agencies to investigate and fish out sponsors of the sect and bring them to book.

Some of the stakeholders in their contribution to lasting peace in the country, called for a redefinition of security administration in Nigeria for more efficiency in the sector, as well as a sincere attitude in the pursuance of peace in the country.

Among the stakeholders present at the security meeting include members of the state executive council, traditional rulers, security chiefs, civil and human rights activists and religious leaders.
