A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Ambassador Abayomi Mumuni has declared that the only way to reduce inter-agency conflicts among security agencies in Nigeria is for the security chiefs to have closer rapport and smooth inter-agency communication.
Mumuni who is the gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC), in Lagos State made this declaration via a statement signed by his Media Aide, Mr. Rasheed Abubakar, a copy of which was made available to DAILY POST on Thursday.
DAILY POST gathered that there had been inter-agency rivalry among the security agencies in the country, the development which has led to loss of many lives and property.
The latest one recorded was the setting free of a man alleged to be a kidnapper, Hamisu Bala Wadume by some soldiers at a police station in Taraba State.
Mumuni said that closer rapport and smooth inter-agency communication would help to eradicate such occurrence and ensure greater success among security agencies.
He urged the security agencies to demonstrate higher levels of professional and personal synergy and cooperation in the course of their works, to forestall inter-agency clashes and mishaps.
Mumuni said, “All our security agencies, military and paramilitary, are working towards the same end, which is securing the lives, property and territorial integrities of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“As such, closer rapport and smooth inter-agency communication is necessary between them, so as to ensure greater success in their activities, and reduce the chances of Inter and intra-agency conflicts to the barest minimum”.
Mumuni while speaking further, called on the political class to intensify their efforts to further deliver even more governance dividends to the people, as he urged them to rededicate themselves to positive governance.
“I wish all Nigerian Muslims a happy, blissful and joyous Eid-ul-Kabir, and I want them to seize this period of joy, spirituality and family to pray for our fatherland. While Nigeria is going through trying times at this moment, it is clear we all can weather the storm with a healthy dose of patience and prayers. Indeed, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
“Eid-ul-Adha is an annual opportunity to remember the strategic patience, collective calm and relentless prayers of Prophet Ibrahim and his family, and how Allah turned around their fortunes as a result, which is celebrated by mankind till date. These lessons are best learnt and applied to our national life today, and by God’s grace, we shall overcome together as a nation.”
