“In specific terms, the nature of military operations demand stakeholders engagements, strategic communication and robust military-media relations through advocacy and sensitization campaigns.
“To this extent, the Nigerian movie industries, media and other stakeholders are urged to partner with the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) towards solving the security challenges facing the country.
