NSCDC launches Safe Schools Response Squad in Zamfara

Dr Audi emphasized the ever-evolving nature of security challenges, stating that no single agency can combat the complexities alone. “The security challenges of our contemporary time are hydra-headed, demanding that we come together and pool resources and expertise to fight our common enemy. This seminar is a strategic step towards seamless collaboration among security stakeholders in Nigeria,” he said.

The representative of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, Nigeria, Ms Marija Peran, in an address delivered by the Deputy Country Representative, Mr Lukas Laible, commended the dedication of security agency heads from various states. She expressed gratitude for the continuous collaboration with NSCDC, acknowledging Audi’s leadership and commitment to the partnership.

“Understanding each other is the most important thing if we want to work together effectively. All of us are sitting in the same boat—a boat to make this nation a safe state. With deepened interagency collaboration, this tremendous and life-saving duty will be possible even better,” she said.

The seminar, an extension of previous sessions held in different geopolitical zones, serves as a platform to foster understanding and collaboration among heads of security agencies. Marija Peran underscored the importance of interagency cooperation in light of Nigeria’s multifaceted security challenges, ranging from terrorism to gang-related violence and conflicts between herders and farmers.

The event featured discussions on conflict analysis, professionalism, ethical standards, conflict resolution, management, and transformation, with an emphasis on the role of human rights in security duties.
