100

As Nigeria marked 22 years of uninterrupted democracy on June 12, the Nigerian Community in South Africa has urged the Federal Government to upscale efforts at curtailing insecurity, banditry and other forms of criminalities in the country.

In a congratulatory message to Nigerians and the leadership wired to Persecondnews in Lagos, the community, under the aegis of Nigeria Union South Africa (NUSA), said it also joined fellow Nigerians at home and abroad to commemorate this year’s Democracy Day.

“It’s been 22 years when our country returned to civil rule and there is a need to celebrate the uninterrupted change of administrations
since then.

“The Nigerian Union South Africa urges the Federal government not to relent in meeting some of the challenges facing the nation.

“Top on the list are insecurity, banditry and abductions. All efforts to stop these vices should be sustained until victory is achieved,’’ it said in the message signed by NUSA President, Mr Adetola Olubajo.

“We also urge the government to sustain policies that have made Nigeria not to be among countries with high COVID-19 cases and deaths.

“NUSA is happy that COVID-19 cases in our country are not on the rise and this should be sustained.

“We equally recommend that measures aimed at boosting the nation’s economy and not allowing it to go down should be implemented.

“The Nigerian community in South Africa has been law-abiding, obeying all rules and regulations of our host country,’’ Olubajo said.

He assured that NUSA would continue to sensitise Nigerians living in South Africa to refrain from crime or issues that would harm them and tarnish the image of the country.

“We pledge to continue to contribute to our country’s democracy and good governance.’’
