BRITAIN READY TO SUPPORT NIGERIAN TROOPS FIGHTING INSURGENCY

BRITAIN READY TO SUPPORT NIGERIAN TROOPS FIGHTING INSURGENCY

The Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major-General Abba Dikko has stressed the conduct of thorough needs assessment to enhance the quality of intervention and assistance provided for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, and other victims of war in the North-East.

The Theatre Commander made this assertion Tuesday during a visit of the British Deputy High Commissioner, Harriett Thomson, to the Headquarters of the Theatre Command, Maimalari Cantonment in Maiduguri.

Speaking further, General Dikko pointed out that although humanitarian activities were currently being conducted by several international agencies in the North-East, the socio-cultural and belief systems of the people of the North-East should be factored into the planning of both local and international intervention and assistant programmes to meet the realities on ground.

He noted that this will to a large extent enhance the stabilization of the North-East and facilitate the speedy recovery of socio-economic development and resettlement of IDPs in their respective communities.

While pointing out that the insurgents’ intermittent disruptive tendencies were deliberate attempts to slow down developmental activities in the North-East, the Theatre Commander called on all communities to exhibit resilience and pick up their bits to resume normal life.

He added that community resilience and resumption of socio-economic life are key to the ongoing counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations as measures of defeat of Boko Haram insurgents.

He assured that Operation Lafiya Dole will continue to provide the enabling environment for humanitarian activities and socio-economic development.

General Dikko also expressed appreciation for the support provided by the British Support and Liaison Team to troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in the counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations in the North-East.

The British Deputy High Commissioner, in his remarks, conveyed the willingness and desire of the British Government to sustain the support for troops in the North-East theatre of operation.
