Youths need to be alert to aid se­cu­rity – NAF

Sunday Trust - - NEWS - By Ruby Leo

The Nige­rian Air Force (NAF) has called on youths in the coun­try to be se­cu­rity con­scious and be alert to hap­pen­ings in their en­vi­ron­ments at all times.

The Direc­tor of Pub­lic Re­la­tions and In­for­ma­tion, NAF head­quar­ters, Air Vice Mar­shal Ola­tokunbo Ade­sanya, made this known while de­liv­er­ing a lec­ture at Afe Ba­balola Univer­sity, Ado-Ek­iti (ABUAD) as part of pro­grammes to mark the univer­sity’s 2018 Law Week. The theme of the Law Week is ‘Law and Se­cu­rity: Fos­ter­ing a Flaw­less So­ci­ety’.

Ac­cord­ing to AVM Ade­sanya, the re­la­tion­ship be­tween law and or­der is di­rect and in­ter­wo­ven and can­not be sep­a­rated from the other in an ef­fort to have a near flaw­less so­ci­ety.

He main­tained that it might be im­pos­si­ble to at­tain a to­tally flaw­less so­ci­ety be­cause re­spec­tive hu­man be­ings have in­di­vid­ual choices to do ei­ther what is wrong or right. Nev­er­the­less, the cit­i­zenry must make ev­ery ef­fort to­wards hav­ing a flaw­less so­ci­ety.

Speak­ing fur­ther dur­ing his lec­ture ti­tled, ‘Role of Se­cu­rity Agen­cies in En­gen­der­ing a Flaw­less So­ci­ety: the Nige­rian Air Force in Per­spec­tive’, AVM Ade­sanya stated that it is only in a near flaw­less so­ci­ety that there could be true pros­per­ity in a peace­ful and or­derly en­vi­ron­ment.

He fur­ther averred that it is only by op­er­at­ing within ex­ist­ing statutes that se­cu­rity agen­cies could con­tribute to the en­gen­der­ing of a flaw­less so­ci­ety.

The NAF spokesman there­fore en­cour­aged the Law un­der­grad­u­ates, who would chart the fu­ture of law in Nige­ria, in the com­ing years to be very mind­ful of their in­di­vid­ual and col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to­wards fos­ter­ing a flaw­less Nige­rian so­ci­ety.
