FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TASKS AFRICAN PARLIAMENTS ON ANTI-TERRORISM STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

President Muhammadu Buhari has tasked the African Parliamentary Union (APU) to develop strategies aimed at assisting various governments in confronting the menace of terrorism, banditry and other organised crimes ravaging African countries.

President Buhari who is the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), made the submission while addressing the 73rd session of the Executive Committee and 41st Conference of Speakers of the National Parliaments of APU.

According to him, abuse of ease of movement of persons’ protocol across the African borders leads to proliferation of arms and has given rise to the menace of terrorism by Al Shaabab, ISIS and Boko Haram.
