Insecurity: Ohanaeze Youths Laud Defence Minister Of State, Matawalle’s Efforts


The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, has lauded the ongoing efforts by the Defence Minister, Dr Bello Matawalle in restoring sanity in the security situation in the country.

The group in a statement by its National President, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, noted Matawalle’s dogged efforts to free the country from the grip of criminals, adding that recent efforts, including his recent speech at a meeting of Defence Ministers in Saudi Arabia, rallied joint support to make the world a better place.

Okwu noted that at the meeting, Matawalle presented real life experience of Nigeria to the audience with the hope of finding a lasting solution to Nigeria’s security challenges.

He quoted Matawalle as saying; “The threat of terrorism continues to evolve, becoming more complex and widespread. It is imperative that we, as a coalition, stand side by side, combining our resources and expertise to protect our nations and maintain global security.

“Pertinently, it is worthy to reinforce Nigeria’s commitment and the need for a deeper level of partnership in the areas of intelligence sharing, technical support and training to enhance regional and national security.”

Okwu also said that Matawalle’s speech showed that he knows and understands the dynamics of the security issues plaguing the West African sub-region, Africa and the world as a whole.

In the words of Okwu; “The Minister understands that there is a global threat to make the world restless. He understands the rudiments of the security crisis we are facing as a nation which can only be solved with collaboration with our neighbours and other countries of the world.

“We appreciate his efforts and commitment towards ensuring that every part of the country enjoys serenity.

“More importantly is the coordination of the security architecture by the defence minister, hence we have not seen cases of inter-agency rivalry.

“We, Ohanaeze youths, pass a confidence vote on him and urge him to continue the good work he is doing. He is one of the best brains President Bola Ahmed Tinubu assembled to deliver on his ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’.

“Our firm belief is that in no distant time, all his efforts will pay off and the citizens will enjoy a peaceful nation,” he said.
