VP Osinbajo On “Fighting Tomorrow’s warfare Today’’

 

Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN on Tuesday March 6, 2018 delivered the keynote address at the 8th National Security Seminar 2018 of the Alumini Association of the National Defence College (NDC) in Abuja. The theme of the seminar is “Fighting Tomorrow’s warfare Today’’, the Vice President noted that the focus of the Buhari administration was the strengthening of the nation’s intelligence gathering capacity in order to rout insurgency and other violent crimes.

According to Vice President Osinbajo “This necessity of robust intelligence gathering underlies every one of our security challenges in Nigeria, not just terrorism but also clashes between herdsmen and farmers, cattle rustling, armed banditry, cultism and militancy.”

“The more spectacular their actions and the more spectacularly depicted it is by the media, the greater the sense that indeed this is a lethal fighting force.”

“We must fight them on multiple fronts, starve them of funding and resources, of sympathisers, and of the oxygen of publicity, especially on the Internet.”

“National Armed Forces must learn the art of rapid evolution and adaptation. They must focus their energies not just on expanding conventional reach but also on developing a robust capacity to take the fight outside their comfort zones: from the financial networks that sustain terrorists to the cyberspace that amplifies their noise.”
