That Mr. Badeh received a delegation from the National Institute of Legislature Studies, NILS, at the Defence Headquarters.
The Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Alex Badeh, said on Friday that the military would cooperate with other stakeholders to tackle insecurity in the country.
Mr. Badeh, an Air Chief Marshall, pledged that the synergy would also be extended to the West African sub-region to ensure the survival of democracy.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, in Abuja.
The statement said that Mr. Badeh dropped the information while receiving a delegation from the National Institute of Legislature Studies, NILS, at the Defence Headquarters.
It said that the CDS lauded the efforts and achievements of the Institute under its Director-General, Ladi Hamalai.
Mr. Badeh, according to the statement, assured the director-general that the military would partner with the institute through its Department of Civil Military Relations.
Ms. Hamalai had earlier told the CDS that the institute was mandated to provide human and information resources to facilitate legislative processes.
She said the mandate also included building capacity by providing training programmes that are certificated by the University of Benin and accredited by the National Universities Commission.
Ms. Hamalai, according to the statement, said NILS also provide back-up services for state legislative assemblies.
The statement quoted her to have disclosed that the institute was working to develop strategies and policies to encompass all major stakeholders in the polity.
The director-general, however, urged the Defence Headquarters to participate in a programme tagged “Parliamentary Security Summit”.
The programme, she said, was designed by the institute in collaboration with the ECOWAS parliament under the auspices of NILS CAP.
Ms. Hamalai said the programme would address capacity building and bring major stakeholders together at both national and sub-regional levels.
She said the programme would deliberate on ways and means of solving security challenges and threat to democracy in the sub-region.
The statement said that the visit provided the opportunity for an interactive session between the principal staff officers of the Defence Headquarters and the management of the institute.
