Defence Minister, Major General Salihi Magashi (rtd) on Monday observed that Nigeria is in a critical situation in the wake of rising terrorists’ attacks, banditry and abductions across the country.
In his opinion, the security challenges require support and collaboration of the civilian populace and other stakeholders saddled with security of the country.
The Minister who spoke at a National Defence and Security Summit organized by the Defence Headquarters with the theme ‘Promoting Kinetic Operations as a Major Plank for Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency in Nigeria’ said, “we are in a critical situation that requires the understanding, buy-in, support and collaboration of important stakeholders and key players in this strategic option and national task. This is important to minimize distractions and maximize civil support in order to facilitate operational success and mission outcomes.”
He noted, “this Summit is coming at a sobering time in the life of our dear nation. A time, when merchants of violence are threatening to tear the very foundations of our nation; a time when diverse manifestations of security threats dot the landscape and impact individuals, communities and almost all sub-national entities in disconcerting ways; a time when fear and uncertainty pervades the land; and a time when global indicators of national insecurity give room for serious concern.”
