The National Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria, Amb. Dr. Dickson Akoh, has advised the federal government against excessive spending on already existing security agencies.
Speaking at the launch of Glamour magazine in Abuja on Wednesday, Akoh urged the federal government to embrace more “human-centric” view to security.
The Peace Corps boss, who was represented by the Deputy National Commandant on Administration, Dr. Edet Ekpeyong, said it would be almost impossible to solve Nigeria’s security challenges given the country’s increasing population.
Presenting a paper titled ‘Youth Unemployment and National Security’, Akoh lamented the rate of unemployment in Nigeria, which he opined, was responsible for insecurity and other social vices in the country.
