Jonathan At UN - I'm Not Intimidated by Terrorists

Leadership (Abuja)
22 September 2011

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan yesterday dared terrorists in Nigeria, saying that the continuous terrorist attacks happening in various parts of the country could not intimidate him or his administration.

The president, in his address at the ongoing 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, said: "For us in Nigeria, terrorist acts, rather than intimidate, will only help to strengthen our resolve to develop appropriate national strategies and collaborate even more closely with the international community in the fight against this menace."

He also told the General Assembly that part of Nigeria's efforts to fight terrorism informed his signing into law the Terrorism (Prevention) Bill 2011 and the Anti-Money Laundering (Prohibition) Amendment Act on June 3, this year, stressing that the new laws not only outlined measures for the prevention and combating of acts of terrorism, but also prohibit the financing of terrorism and laundering of the proceeds of crime.
