The heads of Nigeria’s security and intelligence agencies, as well as stakeholders, were on Tuesday and Wednesday trained on trends in crisis management.

The training was organised by a team from the United Kingdom Cabinet Office. It is aimed at upgrading the security management skills of the trainees to curtail Nigeria’s security challenges.

Hosted by the National Security Adviser, Mohammed Dasuki, at Presidential Communications, Command and Control Centre (PC4) Complex, State House, Abuja, the training also dwelt on roles and responsibilities, strategic policy and direction, dealing with dilemmas, and strategic level decision making in crisis management.

In a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES by Adekunle Karounwi, Special Assistant, Media to the NSA, the Secretary General Of the Federation, Head Of Service, as well as ministers also had their turn with the team after the Executive Council meeting.

Other attendees were the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Andrew Pocock; EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde; Nigerian Army; Nigerian Navy; Nigeria Customs Service; Nigeria Immigration Service; Department of State Security and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

In March, a similar event tagged Exercise Quick Think was organised. It engaged participants from the intelligence and security agencies in situation evaluation, execution of situation evaluation and developing plans for multi-agency crisis decision making.
