By Julius Odeke

The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission  (SRCC)  for  Somalia,  Ambassador  Mahamat  Annadif  has congratulated President  Hassan  Sheikh  Mahamoud,  his  government and  the  people  of  Somalia  on  the occasion of the 41st anniversary of the National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) and the re‐opening of its headquarters.


Ambassador Annadif said the re‐opening of NISA headquarters symbolizes the re‐building of state institutions which had been destroyed by two decades of fighting. He pays tribute to the National Intelligence and Security Agency for being a key security instrument in the search for sustainable peace and security particularly in the fight against extremism in the country.

He said; “The National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) has played a significant role in fighting  terrorists  and  its  efforts  are  clearly  bearing fruits.  I  therefore  wish  to  reaffirm AMISOM’s  continued  commitment  to  working  with  NISA  as  Somalia moves  to  stabilise  the country and rebuild its institutions.”

The AU Special Representative applauded the Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) for being a reliable partner to AMISOM since the deployment of the first AU contingent.
