Group To Launch NorthIsHealing Peace Campaign

A group of peace activists is set to launch a peace campaign tagged, “NorthIsHealing,” across the North to support the federal government’s efforts at tackling insecurity in the region.

 The convener, Suleman Dogara, while speaking to journalists in Abuja Friday, said the campaign was dedicated towards the healing, resettlement and rehabilitation process of northern Nigeria.

Dogara urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s quest to bring lasting peace to the country. 

He quoted a 2016 Human Rights Watch report, which revealed that over 10,000 Nigerians were killed between 2010 and early 2015, while two million were displaced by the terrorists who had taken control of 17 local government areas across parts of the North-East in Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno and Yobe states.

He said steps taken by the administration had reduced the menace of Boko Haram in the last six years, adding that the collaboration among sister security agencies had played a vital role in turning the tide in favour of the country. 

He added that the essence of the campaign was to encourage Nigerians not to succumb to naysayers who pray and wish that things get worse.
