This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief of Military Public Information, Colonel Muhammad Dole at the Force Headquarters in N’Djamena Chad.
The Force Commander who delivered a lecture at the National Defence College (NDC) in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on; “Counter Terrorism/Counter Insurgency Operations and National Security: The MNJTF In Perspective,” to the participants of NDC course 30 offered measures to improve operability of the Force.
He was emphatic on the need to have multidimensional lines of operations aimed at ending the conflict rather than over reliance on the military line of operation alone.
Major General Ibrahim advocated for a whole of society approach in ending insurgency and other security challenges.
The Deputy Commandant of the National Defence College, Major General Emeka Onumajuru, said the issues and challenges that were brought out by the FC in his lecture, should galvanize the participants to seek possible solutions to them.
General Onumajuru also tasked the participants to find out why the Lake Chad Basin was particularly attractive to the insurgents.
There was also a robust interactive session, where issues, challenges and prospects of improving Nigeria’s national security were discussed.
