If we stop funding terrorist organizations the problem of insecurity will be solved
According to Nigeria’s interior minister, Rauf Aregbesola, some security issues in the country can be resolved if terrorists’ access to funding is cut off.
At the inauguration of a 10-member interministerial committee formed to carry out the adoption and execution of the assigned tasks to the ministry, Aregbesola spoke on Friday in Abuja.
According to the minister, the federal government’s adoption of the Financial Action Taskforce (FATF) implementation roadmap served as the foundation for the inauguration.
He claimed that a significant portion of the country’s recent security issues may be traced to economic saboteurs’ “illegal financial operations to the country’s disadvantage.”
He did, however, reiterate the federal government’s commitment to stopping the financing of terrorism and money laundering in Nigeria.
Let me once again state the federal government’s unwavering commitment to ending money laundering, terrorism financing, and associated unethical activities.
“This has made us willing and active allies in this advocacy and struggle with other African and, in fact, worldwide partners.
“If the actors’ financial lifelines were severed, some of the security issues the nation is currently facing may be resolved.
It is highly suggested that they have strong internal or external financial links by the fact that some of them are still in operation.
