President and Founder, Belemaoil Producing Ltd., and presidential aspirant under the All-Progressives Congress, Mr Tein Jack-Rich, in the 2023 General Election, has donated N15 million to the victims of Kaduna-Abuja train attack.
Jack-Rich, who made the donation in Kaduna on Friday during a courtesy call on the Kaduna State Government, called for collective and concerted efforts towards tackling security challenges in the country.
The presidential aspirant, who was received by the Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, explained that he was in Kaduna to commiserate with the State Government and the victims of the attack.
He explained that his action was in response to the Federal Government’s call, through the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amechi, urging Nigerians for financial support to treat the victims.
He expressed concern on the spate of insecurity in the country, and called for concerted efforts and support from all Nigerians to address the security challenges across the country.
”We need to come together as one indivisible Nigeria, and with determination, we can take back our dear country from the enemies and restore the peace and tranquillity Nigeria was known for.
”Let me commend the Nigeria Army for providing free medical service to the victims of the attack, and for the timely rescue efforts in collaboration with other security agencies.
“Our government needs to invest more funds in security and our security agencies need to step up intelligence gathering and information sharing to prevent avoidable attacks on Nigerians,” he said.
Jack-Rich also called on the public to support ongoing efforts by providing relevant information to security agencies to enable them take proactive steps to address the challenge.
Earlier, the Deputy Governor, who received the donations on behalf of the victims, expressed gratitude for the gesture and urged other Nigerians to do same.
