Badaru: Fed Govt will Adopt NIPSS Researches, North Leaders’ Reports to Tackle Insecurity

Defence Minister Mohammed Badaru has said the Federal Government will study the report of a security summit the North held recently over the worsening insecurity in the country.


The minister said the government would examine and forward the report to the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) for further study and analysis.


He said there is a need for the adoption of research results carried out by institutions to mitigate security threats and promote peace and stability in the country and West Africa.


Badaru said this yesterday when he hosted Executives of the NIPSS, led by its Director General, Prof. Ayo Omotayo, at the Ship House in Abuja.


He said the Defence Ministry was ready to partner the National Institute in the fight against insecurity.


The minister said the present administration was doing its best to enhance the security situation in the country.


According to him, the National Institute is an apparatus of change for the development of the nation.


Badaru reaffirmed the ministry’s commitment to collaborative efforts for strengthening the nation’s security architecture through research findings.


Prof. Omotayo said the visit was meant to solicit the support of the ministry in the areas of security, infrastructure, as well as deployment of directing workers to the institute.


Also, The Senate yesterday invited Service Chiefs for an interaction over increasing security challenge in the country.


This followed the adoption of a motion by Senate Leader Opeyemi Bamidele at plenary after a closed-door session.


Presenting the motion, titled: Spate of Insecurity in Nigeria, Bamidele said it was sponsored by all the 109 senators in the Red Chamber.


The Ekiti Central senator expressed sadness at the rising spate of killings, kidnappings, banditry and other criminal activities across the country.


“Senate further notes the recent killings in Agata Local Government Area of Benue State, which led to loss of lives, including security personnel, and wanting destruction of property, as well as the brutal killings of 11 residents of Logo Local Government Area of Benue State,” he said.


Opeyemi alluded to several cases of kidnappings across the country where huge sums were paid as ransom and several victims were killed.


Senate President Godswill Akpabio said the Red Chamber would, after the meeting with the security chiefs, discuss the outcome with President Bola Tinubu.
