Nigeria's Insecurity Can Only Be Solved Through Dialogue, Local Manufacturing O by IDanfulani(m): 7:16pm On Jun 11
Nigeria's Insecurity Can Only Be Solved Through Dialogue, Local Manufacturing Of Military Equipment - Buratai



Insecurity is a hydra-headed monster, which can only be solved by adopting both kinetic and non kinetic measures like dialogue and local manufacturing of military equipment.

Former Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai (rtd) expressed this, while delivering a lecture titled, "Politics and Insecurity In Nigeria: Way Forward" at a one-day Symposium on National Security at the Arewa House, Kaduna on Saturday June 11, 2022.

According to him, such non kinetic approaches should include negotiation, dialogue are integrated approaches that can end insecurity through involving traditional and religious leaders, media, security and intelligence agencies.

"The public needs to be constantly sensitized on roles they must play to end insecurity as key stakeholders," he said.

He further suggested revitilazation of Defense Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON), better welfare and equipment for police, as well as establishment of a national border force like it is done in other parts of the world.

His Excellency, Buratai, also advised that the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) should collaborate and employ all means to block off supplies to terrorists.

"Ungoverned spaces should be covered by states and LGAs to prevent insurgents and bandits from moving around freely.

"Fighters are always in the bush even if military eliminates their leaders and others, they will continue to recruit. Issue of dialogue is very important. If you eliminate those in the bush, what of their political leaders and their recruiting agents?" He asked rhetorically.

Speaking further on the importance of dialogue, he said he strongly aligns with the approach being promoted by revered Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi.

"This is where I commend Sheikh Gumi for his initiative. One third of the fight is military, others should be non kinetic, through dialogue. We must get this solution and this is the right time to get it done," he stressed.
