Issues of insecurity have become quite pervasive over the past few years. As we work to address them, today, I attended a one-day National Defence and Security Summit in Abuja, which was organised by the new Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor.


The theme of this summit, which was, “Promoting Kinetic Operations as a major plan for counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency in Nigeria” emphasised the need for closer cooperation between our security agencies and the federal and sub-national governments.


As we work to keep our citizens safe at all levels, it is my fervent hope that the recommendations reached at this summit will help our new service chiefs and all our security agencies to better serve and protect the lives and property of all Nigerians.
