We will support every effort of the government to contain that ugly threat.” he noted.

We would be going through a major presidential and parliamentary elections, come December 7, which has become part of our democratic ritual. We need to demonstrate to the world that our democracy is strong, it’s evolving, and it should continue to be the envy of many, not just in Africa but the world at large. We all must work to preserve the peace and stability and unity of our country,” he added.
