Peace Can be Achieved By Tackling Poverty – Jonathan
Former President Goodluck Jonathan says peace is the bridge that links poverty to prosperity.
Jonathan spoke at the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation’s public presentation of a research report titled “Terrorism and Banditry: The Nexus” on Friday in Abuja (GJF).
The former president, who acknowledged that nation building can be difficult, added that Nigeria’s pursuit of peace cannot be realized if there is no security.
“Our pursuit of peace cannot be achieved in isolation of the pursuit of justice and other human security needs. This is so because peace is the bridge that links poverty to prosperity, reconciles hope with despair and imposes order on chaos,” NAN quoted him as saying.
Three kidnapped Obasanjo’s workers regain freedom 48 hours after
Barely forty-eight hours after gunmen abducted three workers of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, they have regained their freedom. The workers comprising the Financial Controller, Group Auditor and Group Store Manager of Obasanjo Holdings were kidnapped last Wednesday night.
They were kidnapped by gunmen in Seseri village, near Kobape in the state’s Obafemi-Owode local council. The gunmen, who allegedly shot at the victims’ Hilux van, dragged them into the bush and took them to an unknown destination.
However, only four-eight hours after their kidnapping, the victims were released without paying a ransom. Abimbola Oyeyemi, the spokesman for the Ogun State Police Command, confirmed the development to journalists in Abeokuta yesterday. Oyeyemi said the victims were released following the pressure mounted on their abductors.
He added that the Anti-Kidnapping and SWAT operatives had been in the bush since the incident happened, mounting serious pressure on the criminals.
