Why Nigerian Military Established New Directorate for Media Operations- General Enenche
1. On behalf of the Chief of Defence Staff, General AG Olanisakin (NAM), I have the pleasure to unveil the Directorate of Defence Media Operations (DDMO) to the Press Corps and the maiden press briefing of the Directorate. I must first of all let you know that this new outfit of the Armed Forces of Nigeria is the latest strategic initiative of the Chief of Defence Staff, in line with our military effort on media operations.
2. In this regard, our channel of communicating the operational activities of the Nigerian Military to the general public has been streamlined to one source which is henceforth the Directorate of Defence Media Operations. This implies that, the Directorate is now the clearing house for all information relating to the operational activities of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, which will provide authentic information on all issues bothering on military operations.
3. Additionally, the Directorate of Defence Media Operations is to disseminate information on multi agency operations of which the Nigerian Military is the lead agency. In clear terms, the Directorate of Defence Media Operations is responsible for press briefings, releases and other press activities on all Military and Armed Forces of Nigeria led multi agency operations, for internal and international engagements.
4. The purpose of this establishment is to ensure that the Armed Forces of Nigeria communicate its operational activities through one channel to the general public. It is visioned to achieve “INFORMATION DELIVERY FOR POSITIVE EFFECT”, at strategic, operational, tactical and other levels of our target audience.
5. On this note, on behalf of the Chief of Defence Staff, I am to request for your cooperation and support for the Directorate of Defence Media Operations to enable the outfit deliver on its mandate. I am to further state that, the Nigerian Military will continue to review and restrategize so as to tackle the security challenges in the Country, in order to ensure adequate security of lives and property.
