5TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF CRIMINOLOGISTS & SECURITY PRACTITIONERS OF NIGERIA (NACSP)

Conference Date: 14th-15th October, 2022.   Venue: Green Minds Hotels, Utako District, Abuja 

Preamble:

The year 2023 will be another hallmark in Nigeria’s political history as the nation would mark her 24 years of democracy. Records of Nigeria’s transition from military to civil rule are littered with diverse experiences of youth demonstrations and wanton destruction of lives and property which calls for indebt study.

The current situation has become a threat to Nigeria’s internal security arrangement leading to diverse geo-political agitations and electoral malpractices which have posed significant challenges to democracy,development as well as the unity of the country. Observable evidence have shown that Nigeria is in need of security knowledge capable of producing a meaningful electioneering processes in order to arrive at adequate security parameters for credible election within the federation.

This Conference intends to focus on a number of contending issues of security in the country. It is a call to examine the national security architectures associated with electoral conduct nationwide.Therefore, to rescue Nigeria from the grip of diverse destructive forces of criminality and insecurity, the country is in urgent need of quantitative and qualitative manpower, and funds which are needed at both short and long term basis as well as effective and meaningful national policies in order to arrive at useful decisions that would assist in a free and fair election exercises in the country.

This conference has acknowledged the fact that every national government worldwide should invest huge resources to ensure that adequate security operations are enforced within their territory. In recent years Nigeria has witnessed several security threats such as terrorist attack in north-east, banditry and assassinations in north-west, militancy and kidnappings/ransoms taking in south-south, IPOB and referendum, restructuring agitation in south-east, ENDSARS protest and bombing in the south-west, farmers-herdsmen saga in middle belt, worldwide coronavirus pandemic and other form of criminalities that have almost destabilized national development goals and security in the country. The conference will therefore assist as a coordinated effort by Criminologists and Security Experts, to showcase the meaningful application of security strategies for conducting credible elections as it is believe should promote holistic national security as well as create an enabling environment for investors nationwide.

A close look at current insecurity situation in the country reveals that meaningful security apparatus have not been effectively highlighted and implemented which should assist to bring about a free and fair conduct of 2023 general election in Nigeria. Observable evidence shows that more funds are needed for training and retraining as well as organization of more conferences and workshops at regional, national and international levels for meaningful application of research findings and useful polices that could assist in the significant reduction and control of contemporary insecurity challenges in the country.

This Conference therefore intents to identify a number of challenges with reference to security apparatus and management enterprise in Nigeria.

Furthermore, the study will address strategic security proposals;formulate meaningful security policies; and also suggest the basic skills; as well as recommend necessary scientific techniques which would be needed during the forthcoming elections in the country. Nigeria as a nation is desperately in need of security knowledge within her environment and that of her neighboring nations, strategic security network and operation in Nigeria is very necessary because the nation must have an effective and meaningful track record of her internal and external threats.

The 5th National Conference of National Association of Criminologists and Security Practitioners of Nigeria (NACSP) will therefore provide a unique opportunity to bring together stakeholders from government, security industries, criminologists and security practitioners, academia, multilateral agencies, international organizations, students, youths and civil society groups to share and broaden their knowledge and experiences on security matters and will further state its implications and management in order to achieve meaningful  policies that could assist to safeguard lives and property in contemporary society during and after 2023 elections in the country. It is believed that meaningful initiatives and pertinent solutions could be developed through collaborative dialogue and presentations during the Conference.
