The diaspora organisation that NIGERIA DIASPORA SECURITY FORUM started has now changed and officially AFRICA SECURITY FORUM with the sole objective of ‘Working collaboratively for peace and security in Africa’
The journey started in November 2014 when few professionals with security backgrounds gathered to identify lasting solutions to the security challenges in Nigeria with particular concerns for the Chibok Girls issue. They actively engaged with both Nigeria and other foreign government to ensure that peace reign during the Nigeria election.
As an organisation, were pleased with their contribution to the Security Agenda ensuring that they provide high level report for government consumption and holding strategic events to push forward good governance, effective security and observance of human rights protocols.
According to the group, they are now at a crossroad on Nigeria Security and it collectively agreed as a membership based organisation that their skills and talents would be better utilised at a continental level with other serious national stakeholder interested in genuine security reform and people driven security initiative that promotes safety and security in the continent.
“As controversy continue to trail the use of helicopter within Nigeria airspace to supply undisclosed items to Fulani Herdsmen; unresolved crisis surrounding the Chibok Girls, continuous detention of El-Zakzaky and other security challenges confronting the Nigeria state; it is time to utilise your experience/expertise on fruitful projects where security leadership are genuinely interested in change”, according to the executive Mr. Olodo
AFRICA SECURITY FORUM will continue to speak on Nigeria security issues when the need arises and ready to add value when called upon to support; however we are now more keen to participate in an inclusive deliberations about security from a continental perspective.
