Why local partnerships won’t resolve Nigeria’s security challenges – British Minister



British Envoy and Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, has identified viable alternatives in combating ongoing security challenges in Nigeria.

He said the ongoing security problems in Nigeria are “massively complex and no partnership is going to resolve such multiplicity of problems”.

The Envoy, who disclosed this while answering questions from newsmen in Jos, Plateau State, also said Nigeria’s security problems are not just about intelligence and security and military structure, but linked to issues such as society, humanitarian support and education.

According to Duddridge: “Rather than local and indigenous options, why partnerships will not work in resolving the problems, the issues of society, humanitarian support and education must be reorganised and factored into policy and programming of counter terrorism.”
