Fight Against Terrorism, Violence Should Start From Family Units - Speaker Dogara

...urges traditional rulers, leaders of faith to take up task of identifying roots of violence.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, has called for more vigilance among family members and smaller units of the society in order to detect and act on violent tendencies among its members.  He said this at the National Assembly complex at the National Assembly Open Week organised.

Hon Dogara added that heads of families must take their role of bringing up children in a non-violent manner more seriously because every terrorist or violent act begins with a member of a family, while also calling on traditional rulers and leaders of faith to be active in the upbringing of children so that they can imbibe qualities in them that will make them shun violence and other vices that stall development in the country. While maintaining that the role of the government is to secure the lives and properties of its citizens, but also requires collaborative efforts of traditional institutions, leaders and families to root out criminal minds and perpetrators.

Going further, he conveyed the readiness of the National Assembly to grant legal backing to such roles for traditional rulers.
