President Bola Tinubu has charged security agencies in the country to share information in order to combat the negative effects of terrorism.

He said that hoarding such resources would be counterproductive in the fight against the menace.

The president stated this on Monday during a tour of the new office of the National Security Adviser and facilities at the National Terrorism Centre (NCTC) in Abuja.

He said his administration recognised the relationship between security and economic revival, prosperity, and development.

Tinubu said that terrorism is a global phenomenon that must be tackled with all resources in order to be eliminated completely.

“If we as Nigerians are looking for economic revival, prosperity and development, then we have to give priority to security.

“What I have seen here is a demonstration of intelligence efforts to counter-terrorism. This must be backed by knowledge.

“Counter-terrorism that is not backed by knowledge and intelligence is not going to be of any service to any nation. We are going to work on that together.

“The effort of the entire armed forces of this country must be put together in a way that there will be one single focus on securing the country,” he said.
