Worried by the spate of killings, banditry, kidnapping, and bloodletting in the country, ActionAid Nigeria, AAN, Office of the National Security Adviser Counter-Terrorism Centre, and Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund, GCERF, Thursday called for full adoption and implementation of the Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism, PCVE, in Nigeria.
Stakeholders made their stand at a ‘Stakeholders’ Consultative Forum on PCVE Implementation in Nigeria’ held in Abuja, which was organized by Action Aid Nigeria in collaboration with the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund, GCERF, and the Office of the National Security Adviser Counter Terrorism Centre.
Speaking on the incessant rise of insecurity in the nation, Country Director, AAN, Ene Obi, explained in a welcoming remarks that the PCVE would strengthen the systematic approach to the radicalization of terrorists.
Meanwhile, Country Manager, GCERF, Sarah Le Mesurier in her goodwill message reiterated support in ensuring the enforcement of the PCVE in Nigeria for effective growth and development of the economy.
