The Chairman Security Sub-Committee of SURE-P, Colonel Abdulmumini Aminu (Rtd) made the appeal during a courtesy call on the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja.

In his remarks, the CDS represented by the Chief of Policy and plans, Air Vice Marshal Ahmed Iya expressed the willingness of the military to partner with SURE-P in its effort to provide infrastructure that would alleviate the suffering of the people of the North East.
It was a consensus at the interactive session that the North East emergency situation requires deployment of all elements of national power including infrastructural development. It was observed that critical projects that would enhance the success of the operation constitute non-military component and are deemed part of the operation.
