The Tukur Buratai Research Centre, in collaboration with traditional leaders from the South-West, will convene in Kaduna to address Nigeria’s recurring security challenges.

Retired Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman-Kukasheka announced the event in a statement on Sunday, detailing that the retreat will take place from May 20-25 at the Fifth Chukker Polo Resort along Kaduna-Jos Road, Katabu.

The theme for the retreat is “Traditional Institutions and Contemporary Security Challenges in Nigeria.”

Usman-Kukasheka highlighted the critical role traditional rulers play in fostering harmony and security within communities.

“The seminar seeks to address the critical security challenges facing our nation and explore the significant contributions traditional institutions can make towards sustainable peace and stability,” he said.

The retreat will feature presentations from respected intellectuals, academicians, seasoned security experts, and senior retired military officers.

Additionally, a book presentation by an eminent scholar will further enrich the discussions on traditional leadership and security.

Usman-Kukasheka noted the increasing complexity of global threats, emphasizing the need for both national and international cooperation.
