The Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) has appealed to agencies involved in the counter-terrorism efforts of the Federal Government to stop all inter-agency rivalry.

The NSA said the competition limits the successes of government’s efforts to stamp out terrorism.

The NSA, Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd), who was represented by Navy Commodore Yaminu Musa (rtd), made the appeal in Abuja at a meeting with Directors and Heads of parastatals involved in the counter terrorism crusade.

Mr Musa, who is the Coordinator, National Counter-Terrorism Strategy, noted that government agencies driving the anti-terror crusade must be proactive and united against the terrorists.

The Federal Government had launched a counter terrorism strategy in 2014, with much emphasis on the use of force.

Two years after, the strategy was reviewed to accommodate responses to humanitarian needs of liberated areas in Nigeria’s Northeast.
