Vice-President Kashim Shettima has said that education would continue to play critical role in enhancing Nigeria’s security.

Shettima said this at the convocation ceremony of the 70 Regular Course Cadets and Postgraduate Students of Nigerian Defence Academy NDA, in Kaduna.

Shettima, represented by the Minister of Defence, Muhammad Badaru, noted that education would continue to be a key component of human security.

He said education drives technological advancements, innovations and provides individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce, including those related to national security, such as intelligence, defence, cybersecurity, and diplomacy.

The vice-president added that education fosters critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.

Shettima therefore charged the Cadets to maintain the standard for which they were known and explore new frontiers in the areas of military technology and intelligence gathering.
