He recently revealed that these practices frustrate Nigeria’s counterterrorism efforts, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, just like it is unwise to have disharmony in an orchestra, the army must continually work on focusing on one tunnel, sharing information and sharing intelligence at all times.
Tinubu added that the effort of the entire Nigerian armed forces must be put together in a way that there will be one single focus on securing the country.
His words, “You can’t have disharmony in an orchestra. We must focus on one tunnel…share information, share intelligence. You cannot hoard information. You cannot hoard intelligence.”
“The effort of the entire armed forces of this country must be put together in a way that there will be one single focus on securing the country.”
“You can’t have disharmony in an orchestra. We must focus on one tunnel; coordinate, share information, share intelligence, and work harder.”
“You cannot hoard information. You cannot hoard intelligence. I am glad that Nigeria is on the path to success. We will, I assure you. We will make it a priority and that is why I am here this morning.”
“Terrorism is not unique to Nigeria alone. It is across the world and we have to fight it. We have to eliminate it. If we as Nigerians are looking for economic revival, prosperity, and development, then we have to give priority to security.”
“What I have seen here is a demonstration of intelligence efforts to counter-terrorism. This must be backed by knowledge.”
“Counter-terrorism that is not backed by knowledge and intelligence is not going to be of any service to any nation. We are going to work on that together.”
