Joint effort between military brass and commanders is a requirement of CDS

On Friday, General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS), called for increased intelligence sharing and coordination between and across joint task groups.

Musa made the appeal at the beginning of the Defense Headquarters-organized Joint Task Force Commanders Conference in Abuja.

The necessity of cooperation and synergy between the various branches of the nation’s armed forces was emphasized, he said, as the conference’s theme of “Rejigging Defence Headquarters led operations” indicated.

Since the security landscape is always changing, he claims the military must change its strategy and tactics accordingly to effectively counter new threats.

The CDS stated that “we can capitalise on our collective strengths and capabilities to safeguard our nation” if a spirit of collaboration is fostered.

When asked to elaborate, he said, “We face a myriad of challenges, ranging from insurgency, terrorism, and cybercrime to transnational organized crime, separatist movements, and inter-communal disputes.

Each of these problems necessitates a diverse approach, including not just military measures but also political ones, economic ones, and social ones.

In order to counter these dangers, it is crucial that our various joint task forces work together and share information.

Successful operations rely on the free flow of timely and accurate information.

“We can improve situational awareness, decision-making processes, and promote seamless coordination among our forces by breaking down silos and fostering a culture of information sharing.”
