The Centre for Social Justice, Fairness and Transparency (CESJET) has referred to as on the United Nations to vary its method to the Boko Haram terrorism and announce sanctions in opposition to organizations and nations selling and sponsoring the group.
CESJET gave this cost on Monday in an announcement signed by Govt Secretary, Comrade Ikpa Isaac, following the current capturing of a UN helicopter.
Whereas condemning the assault as ” lowest act of cowardice but on the a part of Boko Haram terrorists”, the centre mentioned that this a get up name to the UN.
In response to CESJET, the United Nations has smooched Boko Haram’s sponsors for too lengthy and now’s the time to stop enjoying the ostrich.
It added that the Intergovernmental group should settle for the reality concerning the sponsors and promoters of the terrorist teams which can be killing civilians in Nigeria and different elements of West Africa.
CESJET, due to this fact, referred to as on UN to “announce actions that ship sturdy indicators to the nations which can be sponsoring and supporting Boko Haram, together with the non-profits and non-governmental organizations in addition to firms and massive companies that reply to those nations”.
Learn full assertion beneath:
The Centre for Social Justice, Fairness and Transparency (CESJET) has adopted current improvement within the north-east of Nigeria with considerations, significantly the capturing harm of a helicopter belonging to the United Nations (UN) by Boko Haram terrorists. The assault is the ultimate indication that the UN should change its method to the dealing with of the Boko Haram menace.
CESJET is frightened that the assault, which additionally resulted in civilian deaths, has not met with the anticipated degree of concern even from the United Nations that suffered harm from it. All that has been heard from the world physique thus far is the tepid assertion from a lowly UN humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, giving updates and state of affairs experiences.
On our half, we condemn the assault because the lowest act of cowardice but on the a part of Boko Haram terrorists and we see such desperation to attain successful as indication that the terrorists will shoot at nearly any goal now that they’re mortally cornered by the Nigerian Navy that has taken the warfare to the center of terrorists’ camps.
The assault on the helicopter is a wakeup name to the United Nations that it’s time for a change in its stance of indifference to the crimes being dedicated by Boko Haram and by extension the firms and the third get together nations which can be utilizing the terrorists to pursue their geo-strategic agenda within the Lake Chad Basin. The UN had maintained an angle of treating Boko Haram as Nigeria’s drawback to which it was offering aid for civilian inhabitants caught up within the disaster as a substitute of seeing and treating because the deal with it’s to humanity.
The presence of the airship within the neighborhood may simply be mistaken for the UN being engaged in one thing significant in ridding north east Nigeria of Boko Haram and all its mutations however in actuality, that is removed from the reality. What the UN is doing in Nigeria’s northeast, flying assist missions, is akin to continually mopping a flooded room with out taking steps to repair the damaged pipe from which the water is spilling. It doesn’t make sense that the world physique is flying assist missions with out taking a agency place in opposition to the nations which can be manipulating Boko Haram to destabilize Nigeria.
If the UN had taken the tough resolution of crafting a decision to curb the nations which can be behind Boko Haram and bringing its hammer down on the sponsors and promoters of terrorism in Nigeria and the west Africa sub- area, then it will not have to fly humanitarian sorties that expose its gear and personnel to terrorist gunfire.
The United Nations has smooched the Boko Haram’s sponsors for too lengthy whereas pussy footing on taking decisive actions in opposition to the group. If the UN had thought this method will solid it as impartial and insulated from being a goal, Saturday’s assault has now confirmed that the terrorists don’t have any distinctions within the targets they choose to assault so long as they will report again to their sponsors that they’ve once more terrorized humanity.
The UN should now stop enjoying the ostrich and admit that it’s time for the world to simply accept the reality concerning the sponsors and promoters of the terrorist teams which can be killing civilians in Nigeria and different elements of West Africa. It’s time for the UN to guide cost in reducing off these terrorists from amongst people just like the most cancers that they’re within the area.
CESJET fees the UN to within the coming days announce actions that ship sturdy indicators to the nations which can be sponsoring and supporting Boko Haram, together with the non-profits and non-governmental organizations in addition to firms and massive companies that reply to those nations and are supporting Boko Haram. Ought to the UN fail to do that and continues with its custom of indifference then it stands to purpose that Boko Haram will henceforth particularly goal UN’s pursuits within the area as a result of it will have confirmed itself as a toothless world physique.
