Kogi, Niger government vow to check violent extremism through employment

Kogi and Niger governments have pledged to address the menace of violent extremism through the provision of employment opportunities for unemployed youths in their respective states.
Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi and his counterpart Abubakar Sani-Bello of Niger made the pledge when they fielded questions from newsmen in Aqaba, Jordan, on Monday, after participating in the counter-terrorism retreat held in Aqaba, Jordan.
The governors, who thanked President Buhari for giving the opportunity to attend the retreat, said they learnt from the retreat that using force only could not address the problem of terrorism or violent extremism.
According to them, they have resolved to engage the youths in their respective state in various meaningful ventures to make them more productive in the society.
Gov. Yahaya Bello said his administration had since embarked on several advocacy programmes with a view to educate the inhabitants of the Kogi on the need to shun all forms of violent extremism.
