James Duddridge: Nigeria's Insecurity Massively Complex Beyond Military Approach by BadRadio: 2:01pm On Apr 30
The British Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, has said the current spate of insecurity in Nigeria is massively complex.

He further said there is no partnership from the international community that would resolve the multiplicity of the country’s problems, whether it is Boko Haram insurgency or a number of other issues.

Duddridge disclosed this while responding to questions from journalists in Abuja Wednesday during his courtesy visit to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
 
“The situation is massively complex and no partnership is going to resolve the multiplicity of problems whether it is Boko Haram or a number of other issues,” Duddridge said.
 
“In the UK, you have a strong partner across the full gamut of issues. So, it’s not just about intelligence and hard security and military, it’s about societies, it’s about humanitarian support, it’s about education and development partnership.
 
“It is not an end game, we don’t get to a point where we would say ‘this is the end of our relationship with Nigeria’ because we got what we want, we set a higher bar, we’re long -term partners,” he said.
 
Onyeama had earlier said Nigeria was confronting very difficult challenges, especially the unconventional nature of the fight against Boko Haram insurgency.
 
“It is asymmetrical warfare, and we’re dealing with very difficult situations. We have an intelligence fusion unit with our partners -the US, UK, France,’’ Onyeama said.
 
He said Nigeria was struggling with unemployment and high inflation level, but that the country was gradually overcoming the situation.
 
He lauded the British Government for all the support given to Nigeria to combat her diverse challenges, especially in the North-East.

This is a clear warning to they FG, they understand how much Nepotic and tribalistic this present administration is, how do you want external help when you havnt exhausted all other options, why not seek for peace instead of force.

Nigerian lives and stability is important to UK for the simple fact that UK is the first preference Choice of all Nigerian Refugees and they don’t wish to be swamped with them

I do not think so. The UK is only interested in the resources of this country and the influx of refugees to the UK is something that is nonexistent.

What an unintelligent and uneducated reply. Not shocked since I don’t expect to read anything intelligent that can stimulate the brain on here. I have only been on the forum for a few days and it might be the worst decision I have ever made due to the amount of cretins on here.

The man is basically saying the complexities of Nigeria’s different layers of insecurity problem is beyond what the military can solve, else, it would complicate things. Nigeria is currently fighting 3 wars: ideological (religious), ethnic and territorial integrity wars. So pray tell, how the military can fix this? The military would just keep complicating things until the center can no longer hold and there’s an all out war.

The only solution is to call for an ethnic conference to discuss Nigeria’s future while fighting just the winnable ideological war against ISWAP with foreign help.

They would get your resources regardless. He’s just being honest with you since most of you just have brains but can’t really use it.

You talking like one who cannot read the fine print in his message. Has the UK or the West done anything without seeking their interest first? Let me ask you a question : other than refugees wanting migrate to the UK(due to unrest in the Sub-Saharan region) , what other threat does the insecurity of Nigeria pose to the UK government and its economy? undecided

understand first before you comment. It simply mean that the solution to nigeria problem is not only military fight alone. It is multidimensional. Dont expect Britain, UK to tell you to dialogue, to grant armnesty, to rehablitate, use carrot and stick aproach, and be responsible and tackle those things that causes uprising before it will start.

Most of you just throw the word “interests” around without necessarily understanding the meaning.

Nigeria as a country is a strategic country in West and Central Africa. An all out war in Nigeria would have a far reaching effect and could destabilise two regions with refugee crisis. And to avoid that, the man gave an honest assessment based on British Intelligence and experiences in other places including within the borders of the U.K. with IRA.

I think the problem with a lot of you is that you can’t see beyond your nostrils and you think everything has to be political and the big white boogieman can never tell the truth. Meanwhile, you don’t even need this man to tell you that Nigeria’s insecurity can’t be fixed militarily due to the complexities involved. All you need is a brain and two eyes; it’s just sad that most of you cretins have both but can’t use them.

inarguably the only saving grace for Nigeria is total restructuring or total break up this Nigeria.
