NALC Security Summit in Washington DC

Written by Administrator
Nigeria Nigeria


The Nigerian-American Leadership Council (NALC) announces its history-making “Boko Haram” and “Niger Delta” Security Summit, to be held September 27, 2013, at the National Press Club Washington, DC.


In a media chat from the Council’s Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC, Headquarters, the Executive Director & CEO of NALC, Okechukwu Mbonu stated “We cannot fold our hands and watch Nigeria fall apart, due to sectarian hate or ethnic bigotry, because Nigeria will among other fallouts, drag down the entire West Africa if she fails.”


Continuing, Mbonu, a Washington trained law and government relations professional who previously served as Commissioner in Maryland, said: “A stable Nigeria means peace across West Africa; for Nigeria to cross this bridge successfully, all stakeholders in Nigeria must be prepared to sacrifice selfish and ethnic ambitions for a far-greater good; a future comprising of a peaceful and politically stable Nigeria will spur real socio-economic stability in West Africa.  Nigeria needs to anchor her natural role as Africa’s leading nation and a beacon for other African states to emulate”.


Panelists will discuss the socio-political and socio-economic roots of “Boko Haram”, and proffer solutions to the current and fast rising insecurity situation in Nigeria and West Africa.
