The Nigerian Army Resource Centre, in partnership with Peace Building and Development Foundation, an indigenous non-governmental organisation with expertise in peace building and advocacy, organized a 5-day training programme. The course titled “Leadership in National Security” took place from Monday 13 to Friday 17 February 2017. The course drew participants from the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police, Department of States Services, paramilitary agencies, religious organizations and civil servants. It was designed to provide participants the opportunity to understand the challenges and dynamics of National Security leadership, with a view to enhancing their capability in the discharge of their assigned roles.
Resource persons for the course were experts with several years of experience drawn from Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), Nigerian Airforce (NAF), Nigerian Police, Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and other governmental organizations.
The DG NARC, Maj Gen JGS Hamakim, represented by the Director Training and Consultancy, Brig Gen ON Ugo, described the training as timely, especially with the current security challenges confronting Nigeria. He emphasized that national security has become an issue of concern not only to the military and other security agencies but for everyone. He further stated that in order to create necessary synergy that would allow for maximum success in tackling National Security challenges, it is necessary for all stake holders in the security sector to understand their individual roles, as well as those of other parties. The DG welcomed the participants and hoped that the course would expand their knowledge and equip them with the requisite leadership skills in the discharge of their duties. PHOTO NEWS CLICK HERE
