The Nigerian Army says guns alone can’t stop the prevailing security threats across the country.
Army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, said this on Wednesday in Abuja while taking over as Director, Army Public Relations at the Army Headquarters, noting that the myriads of security challenges in Nigeria required a multifaceted approach to surmount.
He said, “Permit me to note here that it’s an indisputable and very well established fact, that the sword or gun, cannot alone provide a panacea to the complex and multifaceted security challenges that characterize today’s world.
“I must, therefore, make haste to say that the complex nature of these security challenges requires a multi-disciplinary approach and a conglomerate of stakeholders, of which the media is a very vital one.
“In decisively overcoming these challenges, the NA and the media must be partners in progress to surmount these security threats in order to berth the peace and tranquillity we all earnestly desire as a people and nation.”
Gen. Nwachukwu had been named spokesperson in the latest appointment and redeployment of officers in the Nigerian Army.
