Governor Seeks U.S. Collaboration to Bolster Nigerian Security

Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State has called for a more robust security partnership between Nigeria and the United States. Governor Mutfwang made the remarks yesterday at a security symposium organized by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington DC.

Gov. Mutfwang highlighted the ongoing security challenges in northern Nigeria, particularly in the central region, which has been plagued by violence involving extremist groups and criminal gangs.

The meeting comes amidst heightened concerns over security in Nigeria. Widespread insecurity has rocked Africa’s most populous nation, with armed attacks and kidnappings in the northwest, a festering Islamist insurgency in the northeast and violent sectarian land-grabbing attacks in the central region.

Mutfwang expressed his belief that increased collaboration with the United States on intelligence sharing, training, and equipment provision would significantly strengthen Nigeria’s security architecture.

Recent kidnappings and attacks by armed groups have underscored the need for improved security measures. Gov. Mutfwang’s call for U.S. collaboration reflects a growing sentiment among Nigerian officials who believe international partnership is crucial in addressing the country’s security threats.
