United Nations and the European Union have raised serious worry over the insecurity and insurgency in North East of Nigeria.
According to EU and UN, the situation is getting worse by day.
UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, and EU Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, stated this at a joint press conference on Friday in Abuja.
Lenarcic, who spoke on behalf of the EU during his visit to Nigeria, asked the Federal Government to seek political solutions to the crisis in the North East.
He was also worried about the deplorable humanitarian situation and attacks on aid workers in the region.
The EU commissioner noted that although efforts have been made to battle the insurgency for almost a decade, it was time to strengthen regional collaboration and seek political solutions to end the crisis.
The press briefing was also attended by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, and others.
