NACSP -The Renascent of Celebrity

We are happy to welcome you all to this gathering of elites whose collective aspiration is to see that Nigerians safety of life and property is guarantee. May I quickly express our profound gratitude to your highly esteem presence which we consider to be valuable contribution to our collective resolve, not only to promote, but also to use our professional competence to help our country achieve her transformation security project which would jointly address the twin issue of security, leadership, career opportunities in our noble organization and share dynamic experience that will enrich our efforts to improve criminology and security capacity development in Nigeria. I’m also proud to carry with me the goodwill of our grand patron – Prof. Iwarimie Jaja and all NACSP members. It gives us warmth feelings to know that the fire of youth responsibility and professionalism is still burning even in the entire nation. I would like to borrow the words of Eric Hoffer, summarized in the following insightful comment as thus:

In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exist”. And as intelligence based watchdogs, we must realize that one of greatest keys to being a hero in the days of change is vision which Robert F. Kennedy once said: some men see things as they are and say, “why?” I dream of things that never were and say, “why not?

This is true because, “until a man sees the picture of his future he cannot feature in the future” In practical terms, we must begin with the end in mind. Nigeria has gone beyond accepting criminology as a discipline to accepting it, formally as an interdisciplinary science.

Therefore, National Association of Criminology and Security Studies (NACSP) is an umbrella ORGANISATION of all Criminology and Security Studies (and related disciplines) formed in order to cater for each other in terms of challenges during course of study and to strive at professionalism. NACSP is a non-profit, non-governmental organization whose membership pursuit is scholastic, scientific, metaphysics, cultural/traditional and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control and treatment of crime and delinquency internationally by providing networking opportunities through which members could exchange ideas, knowledge, methods, advice, education and working assignment using scientific techniques. NACSP is proudly registered at the National Secretarial with Nigerian society of criminology (mother body) led by PROF IWARIMIE JAJA and PROF. FEMI ODEKULE and is recognized as a powerful Security intelligence based Watchdog.

Therefore, A NACSP member is professional liberated person, armed with intelligence and scientific knowledge, who identify the anti social behaviours (crime) militating against the attainment of a just and egalitarian society and having resolved to combat those conflicts through law and scientific skills (submit to an agreed level of discipline) is recruited into the Association to join hands with like minds in fighting those crime. The first inaugural meeting held at La mems hotel, 40 Nkemba Street, Uyo on 16th July 2012 was attended by the magnificence seven who signed the scroll at 19:40 hours (7:40 pm) and placed it on cosmic Intelligence Cell. On the 24th September a preterm executive of six members were selected and formed to pilot the Affairs of the Association.

Moreover, it is noteworthy to state that circumstances have bestowed the need to establish the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CRIMINOLOGY AND SECURITY STUDIES (NACSP), given that the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) and conventional Universities in Nigeria have given full attention to the scientific study of criminology, Intelligence/security and the pattern of criminal trend in Nigeria including terrorism, militancy, kidnapping etc. In facilitating the ongoing efforts of the Nigerian Government especially the administration of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR), who has given premium interest in security, the Association aims at tackling the problems of insecurity and the endemic nature of corruption in the polity, through collating crime statistics for both studies and analyses. It is therefore very important, that Nigeria government which the world highly esteemed for its relentless efforts to democratize education/security in Nigeria should support and adopt this initiative; and to embark on breeding a new crop of criminologists and intelligent security personnel, whose collective efforts are expected to assuage this ugly trend currently in vogue in most parts of the country

We believe strongly that NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CRIMINOLOGY AND SECURITY STUDIES will help to promote fundamental principles regarding crime and delinquency, justice and the rule of law in the body polity and to contribute towards the development of a long-term viable and stable, economic utilitarian culture. We believe also that it will enhance and promote the development of academic departments of criminology or justice education in our universities which will influence an increasing number of students who will learn about criminology and play professional roles in our justice system. We also think that it will motivate law enforcement personnel to be more accountable to their duties because students and faculty engaged in locally relevant research activities will assist justice system personnel with research findings on new methods, techniques, and strategies for dealing with crime and delinquency, criminals and delinquents including the victims of these vices.

Therefore, we have implicit confidence that today’s gathering, pragmatic suggestions, strategies and ideas will be proffered by eminent, accomplished and thorough-bred professionals who have been assembled to make lead discussions in the event armed with this new awareness that there is nothing impossible for we are in the season of change, the season for NACSP -The Renascent of Celebrity!

Thank you for listening.

Long Live NACSP.
Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria.
