Nigeria Requests Ireland’s Aid For Internal Security

Aregbesola Urges INEC To Link NIN With Voters’ Registrations

Regarding internal security in Nigeria, Rauf Aregbesola, the interior minister, has asked Ireland for help.

Afonja Ajibola, the ministry’s deputy director of press and public relations, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

When Peter Ryan, the Irish ambassador to Nigeria, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja, according to Ajibola, the minister made the request.

Aregbesola stated that he believed the country needed to establish the National Institute for Domestic Security because the ministry wanted to strengthen internal security.

The minister went on to say that the proposed institute would act as a facility for top-notch security personnel training.

As a result, he sought the Irish Government’s assistance in carrying out the project, which he described as “very dear to me as a minister.”

He claims that his ministry designed the project as a platform for communication and cooperation among all security agencies.

“The National Institute for Domestic Security is a project, an initiative of the Interior Ministry,” he said. “It would be saddled with the responsibility of providing a forum for interaction between all top ranks security personnel in managing internal security.”

The minister praised Ireland for its tradition of moral upbringing and educational advancements made possible by Catholic Missionaries.

Prior to that, Ryan expressed his gratitude to the minister for receiving him despite his short notice and assured him of his nation’s support for security.
