In an interview with Channels Television’s correspondent, Gbenga Ashiru, at the United Nations headquarter in New York, Ambassador Wali, said that the Federal Government was doing its best to fight insurgency.
Several villages have been attacked in Nigeria’s north east, with some schools and churches burnt down by the members of the Boko Haram sect.
The Nigerian government had ordered military operations to counter the insurgency but there seems to be limits to what the military can do, as they have to ensure there are no civilian casualties in the cause of their operations.
On Monday, a former President of Ghana, Jerry Rawlings, warned Nigeria over the use of military in an attempt to end the insurgency being perpetrated by the Boko Haram sect in an attempt to.
The former Ghanaian leader told the BBC in an interview that the military alone could not combat the insurgency.
Mr Rawlings also expressed regrets at the security situation in Nigeria and advised that Nigeria must not succumb to the temptation of seeking the assistance of foreign powers in solving its problems.
But the Mr Wali told the UN Assembly in New York on Monday that the Nigerian government was certainly not leaving anything to chance in its fight against terror.
“We have requested for assistance from those countries that have had experience in this matter to assist us in the efforts we are making to contain the situation. I believe that in the very near future we will see a change in our security situation,” the Minister said.
He also stressed that steps were being taken in collaboration with neighbouring countries to stop the killings in the north east region.
