Mr Peter Chieshe, a governorship aspirant on the platform the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue, has suggested more international assistance in the fight against insurgency in the country.
Chieshe said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Makurdi that the government and international communities should evolve pragmatic approach aimed at ending the activities of the insurgents.
Reacting to the bomb blasts at Nyanya, Abuja, Chieshe condoled with those who lost relations and loved ones in the blasts, describing the abduction of school girls in Chibok, Borno, as despicable.
He, therefore, called on Nigerians not to surrender their destiny to faceless insurgents whose mission was to destroy the country.
“The insurgents seek to disrupt the peace, unity and existence of the country; but it is the duty of every Nigerian to work for a united and peaceful Nigeria,’’ he said. (NAN)
