Presidential panel rues attacks on national assets

The Presidential Think-Tank on Defence and Security Thursday expressed concerns over continuous attacks on national assets by agitators across the country.

Its chairman, Abdulmalik Jibril, spoke at a press briefing in Abuja through Tomboiyi Dick-Iruenabere, a member of the panel.

He said: “We’re seeing agitations for all sorts of causes easily turning violent and what these non-state actors readily focus on are humans and some of these critical national assets.

“Also, vandalisation and destruction of assets in the oil and gas, telecommunications, ICT, maritime, education, railways, banking and other resources in the public and organised private sectors.

“Such actions undermine investor confidence; inhibit the drive for Foreign Direct Investment and capital growth, and truncate real business development in all sectors of the productive economy.

 “We’re seeing these in virtually all the geopolitical zones, therefore, a grave impact on our collective national interest.”
