“So it relates to security and you know security is very typical, especially that there were the recent issues of kidnapping in the North-West and we are becoming so concerned that we need to discuss, review and possibly take alternative options to what we have been doing before so that we can have a better result”.

The governor added that the need for a collaborative approach to tackling insecurity in the region necessitated the meeting.

He stressed the need for non-kinetic and kinetic approaches to address the remote causes of insecurity.

Furthermore he noted that the security agencies were doing their best, but there was the need for non-kinetic approach to address the root causes of the problem.

“In fact, that’s the best way to go because the issue is until we join the two (approaches) and already the Service Chiefs and all other security agencies have been doing their best trying to cover.

“So what we need to do is to change style, especially in addition with the non-kinetic approach, so that at the end of it when we join the two, we’ll have a better security situation in the country,” he stated.
