AN EPOCH MAKING IN A BOOK TITLE: MOBILISATION FOR NATIONAL SECURITY AND DEVELOPMENT BY BRIGADIER GENERAL DOMINIC GABRIEL UDOFA

It's almost certain to profess that a Writer is one to whom writing is more difficult than any other. But there are few and rare who make writing appear as though it is the easiest task one can ever execute effortlessly. Such is the case with Brigadier General Dominic Gabriel Udofa - a renowned Senior Military Officer who has excelled in his military career as the rank of One Star General is not an easy achievement in our ever-tasking military profession. Thus, we can say he has excelled in his chosen profession. The above position is justified in his current book: Mobilisation for National Security and Development.
The book in making is a new dawn in the annals of National Security definition, proposals and research outcome. An epoch making in a book is about to be released into the bookstand in Nigeria. It is written by this new entrance into the literally world of prowess. He will need no further exposition soon. He is no other person than an author who recently published a book of its class tilted: Life in the Nigerian Defence Academy in our Days; that was written by this new author and published on 26th October 2017. In not too distance future; in fact, on the 21st of November this year 2019, the same author is about to release another classic but this time in his field of Intelligence and Security. The person is Brigadier General Dominic Gabriel Udofa and the new book being expected soon is titled: Mobilisation for National Security and Development. It is a masterpiece and a must-read; therefore watch out the news-stand. To whet your appetite below is the apt synopsis of the book:
Not to my knowledge since the advent of chronic security threats has an author so boldly delighted in publishing an amazing book with enigma piled on apt solutions to national security challenges and development in Nigeria. Dominic Gabriel Udofa's book: Mobilisation for National Security and Development captures the muffling state of Nigeria's national security and development and proposes how Nigeria can swing the pendulum without blemishes. As an Intelligence expert with a keen eye for details, the author has carefully selected topics that harbour perfect expression of his proposal's major aim and objective.
Written in eleven chapters, Chapter One discusses mobilisation and national security, situating it within the Nigerian context; while Chapter Two assesses the efforts of mobilisation towards better national security in Nigeria and x-rays some valid examples like the fight against Ebola virus epidemic, suggesting the adoption of such bold steps in stemming the current tides of insecurity in Nigeria. Chapter Three analyses the contending views on mobilisation and situates same within the national security context.
The author gathers and synthesises works of other scholars in relation to the topic under discourse in Chapter Four through theories of mobilisation; while Chapter Five is devoted to examining the issues that need to be addressed to enhance mobilisation for national security in Nigeria and, indeed, in most African countries. Chapter Six handles the impacts of mobilisation on national security in Nigeria, especially with emphasis on some special cases.
Through the author's dexterity in diversification, he draws inferences from the purpose of the NYSC scheme and proposes mobilisation modules to take off from the streets youths whose empty hands have been made workshops by unscrupulous Nigerians under mundane guise. The mobilisation modules herein will gradually put a seal on the entrails of violence and crimes which have held the country in tethers, breaking out with cold sweat. These lofty benefits are what each state of the federation stands to reap in Brigadier General DG Udofa's excellently well-tailored proposal.
Chapter Seven is devoted to a thorough investigation of the challenges of mobilisation on Nigeria's national security. Chapter Eight examines the prospects for improving mobilisation. Similarly, the searchlight of Chapter Nine is beamed on strategies to employ mobilisation in Nigeria and other countries to enhance national security and development. Chapter Ten presents implementation platforms of social mobilisation for security and development agency. Chapter Eleven concludes, in abstractive summary, the contending issues discussed in the previous chapters before stating the recommendations. For a frame of reference and believability, the author ensures the proposal is backed up with tables and analysis that will justify his intention in his limitless contribution to humanity umbrella and national development.
Assurances that the entire book has been more adequately anchored on research efforts and he ensured that all quoted works are appropriately cited including unstructured interviews granted to not less than 20 prominent Nigerians that cut across all theatres of human endeavours. The Book in my view is a must read because it will add a new impetus to intelligence, security and development succeeding stratum.
