Agencies challenged to crush insecurity threats

26 April 2016, 21:36

Abuja - Minister of Defence, Mansur Muhammad Dan-Ali, has ordered all security agencies  to defeat and all crises that have compromised peace and national stability.

The call comes in the wake of terror by the Boko Haram sect and the growing wave of communal conflicts in some parts of the country.

“All security agencies in Nigeria have been called upon to crush and deter the threats of crisis and conflicts that have potential to disrupt peace and security of our country,’ said Dan-Alli.

He spoke in Abuja where he presided over a seminar the Centre for Crisis Communication (CCC) organised.

Information officers of the Military, Security and Response Agencies attended the event held in conjunction with the Defence Headquarters DHQ as well as the Nigeria Stability and Reconciliation Programme (NSRP).

The minister tasked information officers of the various agencies to be patriotic and professional in the discharge of their duties.

“You (officers) must bear in mind that our dear country is currently confronted with several challenges which demand every sense of professionalism in the way and manner information is to be managed,” said Dan-Alli.

“You have the responsibility to manage sensitive information at your disposal with all sense of patriotism and to relate with media and the general public with utmost sense of professionalism taking into cognizance the importance of our cherished national interest and national security.”

The minister pledged continued support for all the agencies particularly those battling insurgency in the North East so that they can effectively deliver on their mandate.
