The Presidential Think-Tank Committee for Defence and Security, has postponed the forthcoming December 6th – 7th national summit on protection of Nigeria’s critical infrastructures, monuments and business assets till a later date.
ROYAL NEWS reports that the decision to postpone the planned summit emanated at the emergency meeting of the committee convoked and presided over by its Chairman, Major General Abdulmalik Jibril (rtd) which held at the National Defence College, Abuja.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Media Consultant To the Think-Tank committee on defence and security, Mohammad Abdulkadri, on Friday.
The postponement, according to its Chairman was due to what he described as unforseen circumstances beyond manipulations and control, even as he appealed to the critical stakeholders, sponsors and prospective participants to bear with the situation in this circumstance and stay action on their moves to support this national course till a later date when the programme will hold.
The committee accordingly regretted all inconveniences the postponement of the summit might caused major partners like the resource persons as well as Military, Paramilitary and Civilian prospective participants.
The Committee rounded up its meeting by renewing its earlier appeal to the host communities where the National Infrastructural Monuments and Business Assets are sited not to relent in ensuring that they are well protected against any infraction by vandals.
