Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, will lead a high-powered panel at the international human rights seminar on global impact of terrorism.

The two-day programme scheduled for Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, is organised by the Save Humanity Advocacy Centre.

Ibrahim Abubakar, executive secretary of the centre, said the programme is aimed at discussing the economic impact of terrorism around the globe.

“The two-day seminar with theme: ‘Global War Against Terrorism: For Nigeria, A Choice Between Law and Life’, slated for 13th and 14th December, is targeted at intimating stakeholders on various ways to support the anti-terror war,” Abubakar said.

“The conference will also feature vibrant politicians and activists who will discuss the way forward for the war against terror in Nigeria.

“We have secured the guarantee of vibrant politicians and activists that they will grace the event to share their insights, so we are assured that its various sessions will be rewarding.

“SHAC decided on this seminar as a vehicle to enlighten stakeholders on how to structure their intentions in ways that support ongoing efforts while speeding up recovery from ravages of terrorism, so that Nigeria’s economy can again be on a sound footing – devoid of the distractions of terrorism.”

He said there is need for experts to properly educate stakeholders and practitioners in this field of their obligations to both state and the citizenry to ensure that international laws and protocols are strictly adhered to.

“It is our contribution to the non-combatant component of the anti-terrorism war to which we invite other well-meaning individuals, domestic and international organisations to offer their own support; this is about humanity so all artificial constructs that limit us should be disposed of,” Abubakar siad.
