President Tinubu Calls for Regional Collaboration to Combat West Africa’s Security Threats


Speaking at the ongoing ECOWAS Summit, President Bola Tinubu stressed the importance of regional cooperation and collaboration in addressing the complex security challenges facing West African nations. He urged fellow leaders to join forces to combat terrorism, banditry, and other forms of insecurity that threaten the peace and stability of the region.

President Tinubu highlighted the interconnectedness of security threats in West Africa, emphasizing that “no nation is an island in this fight.” He urged leaders to move beyond individual national approaches and adopt a coordinated regional strategy to tackle these issues effectively.

Key points emphasized by President Tinubu include:

  • Sharing intelligence and resources: Collaborative intelligence gathering and information sharing between nations will help identify and neutralize security threats before they escalate.
  • Pooling military and security resources: Joint military operations and coordinated security deployments can effectively address regional security threats that transcend national borders.
  • Addressing the root causes of insecurity: Focusing on economic development, poverty reduction, and social justice can help address the underlying causes that fuel terrorism, banditry, and other forms of insecurity.
  • Strengthening regional institutions: Empowering regional institutions like ECOWAS to play a more active role in mediating conflicts, coordinating security responses, and promoting peace and stability.

President Tinubu’s leadership in advocating for a regional approach to security is a positive step towards addressing the complex challenges facing West Africa.
