Center, Nigerian Army Resource Center to Partner towards Strengthening Personnel, Institutional Response Against Organized Crime

  • Description :

    The Center for Fiscal Transparency and Public Integrity (CeFTPI) and the Nigerian Army Resource Center (NARC) have agreed, in principle, to partner in strengthening personnel and institutional capacity and response against organized crime in Nigeria.

    This was agreed upon when the Center was received, in courtesy visit, by the Director General, Major General Garba Ayodeji Wahab (rtd) and other management staff of the NARC.

    The NARC is saddled with the responsibility of generating and interrogating ideas towards addressing issues on Defence and Security; and a resource hub for Defence and Security matters, which aligns with one of the aspects of the Center’s Countering Organized Crime Programme (COCP) which seeks to support stakeholders with data and institutional capacity to tackle organized crime.

    In his address, the Executive Director of the Center, Umar Yakubu said the Center’s organized crime programme which saw the convening of an International Symposium on Countering Organized Crime in Africa, seeks to explore and adopt effective strategies in tackling organized crime.

    He said that the Center’s data-driven response to the phenomenon of organized crime requires constant upskilling of security personnel to match the ever-evolving crimes that transcend borders and affect communities globally.

    Responding to the purpose of the visit, MG Wahab (rtd) welcomed the partnership, stating that the NARC is committed to working with stakeholders for the government to accomplish the task of eradicating insecurity and promoting peace across the country.

    The DG seized the occasion to call on the citizens to support the government in its bid to rid the nation of insecurity, noting that the military will, on its part, continue to operate by the rule of law.
