Igwe promised that the university will maintain high standards in the course of the partnership.

“Universities are established to proffer solutions to some of the problems or challenges of the nation, and the proposed collaboration between DIC and UNN contributes to this regard,” Igwe said.

Also speaking, Freedom Onuoha, coordinator of UNN-DIC collaboration, said the proposed courses for the programmes will be developed to meet the contemporary needs of the intelligence community in Nigeria.

“The goal is to leverage the unique strengths of both institutions to produce a critical mass of human resources with robust intelligence backgrounds, capable of responding to current and evolving challenges to national security and defence,” Onuoha added.
