NIM challenges FG to use modern methods to curb insecurity
The Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) has challenged the Federal Government to be more proactive in dealing with security issues and threats through modern methods of intelligence gathering, and sharing among security personnel, as well as the deployment of advanced technology for managing the challenges.
The President and chairman of Council, Nigerian Institute of Management (Charters), Emeritus Professor Munzali Jibril, who spoke in Lokoja over the weekend at the North Central zonal summit said government’s effort should also take the issue of training, motivation and logistics seriously.
According to him, “The real solution lies in government accelerating the pace of economic development through creating an economy with relevant social, economic and physical infrastructure to support business and industrial growth.
“The implications of security challenges on the socioeconomic development of the country are very glaring with Northern Nigeria being the worse hit as a lot of businesses are unfortunately.’’
He said the theme of the upcoming summit “Managing Security and Socio-Economic Development in Nigeria,” was chosen to reflect the security challenges the country was currently experiencing.
He indicated that the 1999 constitution aptly stated that, “the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of governments.”
