Japan To Aid The #Bringbackourgirls Fight Only If…



The Japan Parliamentary Vice Minister for Environment, Hideki Makihara, has pledged Japan’s support to the Nigerian government in fighting terrorism in the country, this weekend.
Makihara made this known during the just concluded World Economic Forum held in Abuja. While briefing news men at the event, he promised that aides will be sent into Nigeria from Japan as a contribution to the on-going battle Nigeria is fighting with terrorists in the country, especially the kidnap of Chibok schoolgirls which has incited the #Bringbackourgirls campaign.
Makihara however stated that Japan’s civil defense forces will only be deployed to Nigeria if the United Nation is also involved in the anti-terrorism activities. He said;
“I believe we will be able to co operate with the United Nations with its activities but without the United Nations decision it is difficult for us to send our civil defence army and we have never sent our police to other countries.
“police is just for national security that is our restriction under the constitution but maybe it will be possible for us to send the technologies or machines.
“Three weeks ago I had the chance to discuss this matter with authorities in Nigeria which I was asked what the most important issue in the security related issue, so there are ongoing discussions and they are going to provide us with the project to commence which we are going to examine and decide which project we are going to give the most priority.
The Vice Minister also called on the Federal Government to do something about the poor power supply in the country. He advised that a good way of waste management be introduced into the economy, so that energy can be generated from the same means.
He said, “in Africa waste management system is so far not good but if you introduce a nice waste management system, you can also get energy from the waste”.
The #Bringbackourgirls campaign has attracted a lot of attention to Nigeria, with people from all over the world joining in to call for the release of the abducted school girls from Chibok in Borno state.
