Jonathan Launches National Security Documents

In a renewed effort at tackling terrorism and cyber crimes, President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday launched three national security documents.

The documents were tagged National Security Strategy; Counter Terrorism Strategy; and Cyber Security Plan and Strategy.

At the launch held at the Presidential Villa, Jonathan advised all security agencies to adopt the principles enshrined in the documents.

“Today, the foremost threat facing us is clearly the terrorism perpetrated by the Boko Harram, the radical Islamic sect, in its bid to further its misguided cause.

“This cowardly group has continued in wanton disruption of lives and property particularly in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.

“Boko Haram has systematically targeted the poor and the wealthy; it has employed violence to intimidate and instill fear to the general populace and media propaganda to manipulate the minds of our people.

“The sect, its supporters and allies, seek to undermine our national security. They neither believe in our country nor the sanctity of human lives.

“The counter terrorism strategy document is a major contribution to our determined national efforts to effectively and comprehensively deal with the challenges posed by Boko Haram and other insurgency groups,” Jonathan said.

According to him,  the document on cyber crime strategy is aimed at identifying forensic measures to address the nation’s cyber space exposure and risks.
Jonathan stressed that public private sector partnership, multi stakeholder engagement and international cooperation are the three key approaches to a successful national cyber security programme.

He urged for cooperation among stakeholders to eliminate the security threats.
The president added that the three publications would be of immense benefits to the business community and all in communication.

“These documents will no doubt contribute immensely our collective efforts at finding solutions to the security challenges that posed threats to our progress and development efforts,” the president noted.
