The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Alumni Association of the National Institute (AANI) has bemoaned “the lingering insecurity and divisiveness in the nation” even as it appreciated “governments’ efforts at all levels towards alleviating the situation.” It stressed the “need for more efforts in addressing these insecurity challenges in the country.”

“In support of the Government’s efforts, NEC resolved to convene national dialogues to discuss national unity in all the country’s six geo-political zones,” AANI said in a communiqué released at the end of its meeting held at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) Kuru, on Saturday, June 19, 2021.

“NEC encourages AANI State Chapters to have robust engagements with their various state governments and other stakeholders on critical issues, given their training and experience at the National Institute,” the communique said.

It commended the Federal and State governments and other institutions for appointing AANI members into key positions of responsibility while urging for more of such appointments, including Board membership of parastatals.

The communique signed by AANI Secretary General, Abubakar Ismaila Isa, noted “the ongoing consideration of the private member’s bill at the National Assembly for the amendment of the Act establishing the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru and resolved to make relevant inputs aimed at strengthening the National Institute.”

The meeting, which was chaired by AANI President, former Inspector General of Police, MD Abubakar, deliberated on a number important AANI and national issues. Some of them include members welfare, AANI’s efforts towards enhancing Nigeria’s national unity, the general security situation in the country and several other burning national issues, as well as AANI Multipurpose Cooperative Society, amongst others.
