Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged the Republic of Korea to assist Nigeria in tackling insurgency currently plaguing the north east region of the country.
Kalu made the call when he hosted the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Nigeria, Mr. Kim Young-Chae, and his wife, Judy Kim (MP) at his residence in Abuja.
The former governor of Abia State acknowledged that though the Nigerian government had been doing a lot on terms of the development of critical public infrastructure, it required the cooperation and assistance of friendly nations to tackle its multiple security challenges effectively.
It was the second time in one week, Kalu would be seeking assistance from the international community to enable Nigeria tackle her security issues.
According to Kalu, the prolonged insecurity does not augur well for investments, adding that the entire scenario seemed like a sabotage.
“The Northeast, the Northwest and the Southeast need a lot of help on insurgency. So, I am calling on the ambassador to see how he can advise his government to be able to help us on insecurity,” he said.
