If UK had just one of the problems Nigeria is facing, we would be struggling — British High Commissioner

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, says if UK had just one of the problems Nigeria is facing, the country would be struggling, The Vanguard reports. 



Speaking in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, the envoy said, “I do have some sympathy for Nigeria because if we as UK have one of these problems your country is having today, we will be struggling. Here, you deal with everything, from insurgency to kidnapping, to piracy off the Gulf of Guinea and you don’t have such a large army and police force for a country of this size.

The only way you turn this thing around is that government has to build the trust of its people, to have the people working with the government to deal with criminality. That’s how successful anti-criminal operations work.

People willingly report those committing crime, working with police to identify criminals, same with the military on the insurgency situation. It’s only when the community is on the side of the police and security services that they can turn around the situation.”
