President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday highlighted the roles required of UN member states in order to stop violent extremism and the threat posed by terror groups in Middle East and Africa.

Speaking on a panel on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism chaired by United States’ President, Barrack Obama, at the 70th United Nations General Assembly, President Buhari urged “the international community will be required to disrupt illicit financial flows from nations with weak anti- theft structures to other parts of the world” adding that “where such funds are identified, the victim states should be helped to recover them expeditiously.”

He noted that Boko Haram regained strength after it declared its allegiance to the Islamic State, adding that the group’s recruitment has expanded to the Sahel region and encouraging activities of Boko Haram.

President Muhammadu Buhari reminded UN member states that “groups like al-Qaeda and ISIL express their anger when people feel that injustice and corruption leaves them with no choice of improving their lives.”

He also reminded UN Member states that there is an urgent need to “address local social grievances by formulating policies that ensure growth-based transformation through job creation, equalisation of opportunities and expansive access to social services.

“We in Africa also need to rededicate ourselves to the mandate of the African Union Peer Review Mechanism and other good governance initiatives that we have adopted in our region to encourage conformity with political, economic and corporate governance values.”

Nigeria’s president also insisted that all options must be explored and all hands must be on deck in the quest for a durable and a lasting panacea to the threat posed by ISIL, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the likes.

He further maintained that good governance, accountability, transparency and the rule of law remains the basis to kick-start the process of ridding the world of the menace of terrorism and violent extremism. (Channels TV)
