According to him, security has different dimensions which must be recognised and addressed.
“It is important to advise that we look at security from a broad perspective. The dimensions of security are so many, but generally, we tend to focus on the physical dimension of security which is not the main thing.
“We have the economic dimension of security. Even, there is a political dimension, for people to come and express their interests, and to ensure that those interests are reflected in what turns out to be the results is an issue that could generate insecurity.
“That is the political dimension of security. We also have the social dimension of security.
“If we begin to address the political, economic and social dimensions of security, especially at the state level, it will help and make us understand what needs to be done.
“The Federal Government is doing a lot in terms of equipment and that’s the physical of it,” he said.
