Joint effort is the best approach to address Nigeria security concerns.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has recently disclosed that his administration will allocate resources to bolster the operational prowess of security and law enforcement agencies, while concurrently elevating the welfare standards of personnel. This resolute commitment is an attestation to his unwavering determination to effectively tackle the prevailing security challenges that beset our nation. The affirmation was delivered by the President who spoke through the Vice President Kashim Shettima, during the Passing Out Parade of the 5th Regular Course of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State.

He stressed that joint effort is the best approach to address Nigeria’s security concerns, as the current administration is committed to implementing effective measures. The president reaffirmed that his administration is taking a holistic, centered around solutions perspective. First and foremost, the administration is increasing funding for law enforcement to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. The President has announced that the government will be providing additional resources, training, and equipment to strengthen the police force and security agencies.

All within capacity must be done to ensure people safety.

The President said that the government is also working to improve the country’s intelligence and systems on both the national and international levels at the same time. The administration is forming alliances to effectively combat transnational dangers, which it recognises must be addressed through collaborative efforts with other countries. Furthermore, it’s also carrying out comprehensive social programmes and economic development projects aimed at fostering inclusiveness, social unity and economic prospects for everyone, the President added.

While applauding the leadership of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and other security agencies for their efforts, the President emphasized that it is now a general moral obligation to support the NPF and other security organizations in their efforts to further enhance public safety, and to make sure the people and foreign investors feel safe in their homes, businesses, and with their various investments. He further encouraged all police officers to remain true to the police forces’ core values of “Integrity, Honesty, and Compassion.”

Our actions must be reflective of the highest ethical standards.

Additionally, regardless of origin, no citizen should be denied their basic human rights and are entitled to be treated equally. To protect the rule of law, our actions must be reflective of the highest ethical standards. Together, we are the embodiment of the values that characterize a respected and accountable Police Force. He expressed optimism that the latest graduate will be able to contribute to the goals of the current administration. With the success of their training throughout the course of the Academy’s five years, the president believed that they are ready to serve the country.

In his continuous statement to the graduates, he said “May you all embark on this journey with courage and determination, knowing that the nation needs your patriotic services. Stay vigilant, stay united and stay focused on the ideals that make our Police Force an example of honour and integrity.” AIG Sadiq Abubakar, the Academy’s commandant, in his earlier remark, expressed gratitude to the Federal Government for its unwavering support to the institution, saying that the graduation of 169 cadets was evidence of the current administration’s dedication to improving the police force’s infrastructure and manpower development.

Absolutely! Enhancing the welfare of security personnel is crucial for addressing Nigeria’s security concerns. However, it is equally important to adopt a joint effort approach to tackle these challenges effectively. By fostering collaboration and synergy among various security agencies, as well as involving the community, we can create a stronger and more coordinated response to security threats.
Security concerns in Nigeria require a multi-faceted approach that goes beyond just improving the welfare of security personnel. It involves addressing the root causes of insecurity, such as poverty, unemployment, and social inequality. By investing in education, job creation, and social welfare programs, we can empower individuals and communities, reducing the vulnerabilities that contribute to insecurity.
Additionally, enhancing intelligence gathering, sharing information, and improving the capacity and training of security personnel are vital components of a comprehensive security strategy. By leveraging technology, intelligence agencies, and international partnerships, we can strengthen our security apparatus and stay ahead of evolving threats.
Ultimately, addressing Nigeria’s security concerns requires a collective effort involving government, security agencies, communities, and individuals. By working together, we can create a safer and more secure environment for all Nigerians. Let’s unite our efforts and prioritize the well-being of security personnel while adopting a holistic approach to security challenges.
