The Nigerian military’s cooperative efforts in addressing security issues have been recognized by Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo, particularly in the areas of intelligence gathering and information sharing.

The Osun monarch also praised President Bola Tinubu for being prepared to deal with the nation’s insecurity at this time.

In an Osogbo statement received on Tuesday, Oba Akanbi made this known. The statement was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Alli Ibraheem.

He acknowledged that interagency cooperation has benefited intelligence collecting and information sharing within the military, but emphasized that the collaborative approach has greatly reduced insecurity throughout the nation.

The father of the king further expressed optimism that, with the recent there was consensus among the soldiers and officers on the front lines that insecurity would drastically decline over the next few months.

“Nigeria’s security architecture has significantly improved as manifested in the decimation of terrorism and banditry. This was not unconnected with the appointment of capable hands as security chiefs. The synergy and inter-agency collaboration among them mostly especially in intelligence gathering and information dissemination have contributed immensely in checkmating insecurity.

“I specifically and especially commend the Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces, President Ahmed Tinubu for appointing capable hands as Service Chiefs to reconstruct the security model of Nigeria.

“He gave the security baton to the best hands in the military and the police. He also gave them free hands to do their job without interference. Today, we are all seeing the results from these dedicated Nigerian patriots,” he said.

While urging Nigerians to assist security forces in obtaining intelligence by offering pertinent details that may aid in the averting of assaults, Oluwo pointed out that the security chiefs’ strategy for combating insecurity is distinct.

It demonstrates preparation, dedication, commitment, and patriotism to one nation, in his own words. We had probably never seen it display this well before. There’s a lot of optimism. They merit our best wishes, praise, and unwavering assistance.

To raise the morale of security personnel nationwide, he also pleaded with the government to expand welfare programs.
