Minister of Police Affairs, Dr. Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi has sought collaboration among various government agencies for unification of various security agencies to achieve effective delivery of security services in the country.

This, he also said at two-day workshop on the “Inter-Agency Cooperation between the Nigeria Police Force and Other Securities Agencies organized by the Ministry of Police Affairs through the Police Inspectorate Department, PID in Abuja, would help stimulate economic growth and national development.

Dingyadi, according to a statement by the Head of Press and Public Relations Unit in the ministry, Bolaji O. Kazeem, said the event was organized as part of the ministry’s strategic role in emplacing an actionable roadmap to sustain the gains of the Muhammadu Buhari administration in the security sector.

The minister, who was represented by the Director Legal Services of the ministry, Mr. Bolarinwa Omoluabi, said: “Today, we are all gathered in this hall, to re-strategize, on deepening one of the fundamental ideas of promoting peace, safety, and security in Nigeria. The need for interagency collaboration for the overall benefits of Nigeria’s security growth cannot be over-emphasized.

“Security is an all-inclusive concept in every human society. Security and survival are the two major threats to the existence of humans. In Nigeria, security issues are handled by various security agencies of government established for the maintenance of law and order.”

Dingyadi stressed the need for various security agencies to consider effective security as their primary objective, realizable through collaboration.

“Despite the institutional mandates of the military, intelligence, and law enforcement agencies, the overall aim is to meet the primary objective of government, which is to ensure the security and welfare of citizens,” he said.

He added that the workshop was organized to evoke strategies to foster robust interagency collaboration by building synergy, intelligence sharing, joint operations as well as sporting activities to enhance fitness.

In his paper presentation on the “Resolving the issues of conflicts among security agencies in Nigeria”, Major General Selah Maina (rtd) classified the conflicts as deliberate and non-deliberate nature of the interagency conflict which are conscious actions and inactions of personnel to accord respect or observes esprit de corps to personnel of sister agencies as well as the ignorance of personnel in the discharge of their duties.

He added that communication, sustained interagency conference, the appropriate punishment for culprits, education, legal and institutional frameworks as well as social interaction are key actions that can eliminate inter-agency conflict.

In his submission, a retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr. Bassey Effiong stated that inter-agency collaboration will promote greater efficiency in service delivery, improve the role of the definition of participating agencies, improve the quality and quantity of programme, information, and minimal political drainage from reduced funding.
