Zambian High Commissioner in Nigeria, Dr. Solomon Samuel has expressed concern over the security situation in Nigeria.
The ambassador, who spoke ahead of the International Peace Concert billed for Saturday in Abuja, disclosed the readiness of his home country to assist Nigeria in tackling terrorism and banditry.
Samuel recalling the roles Nigeria played in the liberation of Zambia and other southern African countries from the apartheid regime, reiterated that Zambia was willing to partner with Nigeria in the training of security personnel to tackle insecurity in the country.
The presentation themed ‘Hope in troubled times,’ according to him, will have singing groups from Nigeria and Ghana perform to seek divine intervention in addressing security challenges.
“The Seventh Day Adventist Church has come up with a brilliant method of enhancing peace. To this effect, Zambia would want to identify with the Adventist Church. Because our brothers and sisters in Nigeria, who are grappling with insecurity, Zambia cannot stand idle and watch them face acts of terrorism,” he added.
