Terrorism: Osinbajo calls for vigilance

The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday advised Nigerians to be more vigilant in order not to fall prey to terror attacks.

He gave the advice in an interview with newsmen shortly after attending the 90th Birthday and Thanksgiving service of Madam Dorcas Adedayo at the Cathedral of St James the Great, Oke-Bola, Ibadan.

The vice president said that the recent alert on plan by the terrorists to attack important personalities using garbage carriers was real.

He therefore said that Nigerians irrespective of status must be security conscious at all times and report any suspicious movements to security agents.

On the bailout to states, Osinbajo explained that it was a creative way of addressing the financial crunch facing states.

He that the bailout approved for the states was in three categories, including monies released for payment of backlog of salaries from the $2.1bn NLNG tax.

The vice president said the second package was a loan which the states could access at very concessionary rate and the third involved conversion of most loans states owed commercial banks into bonds.

He added that details on the bond were being worked out but may have a tenor of between 15 and 20 years.
