Reading the 10 points communique after the meeting, the monarch stated that there’s need for confidence-building between the army and the civil populace in order to flush out miscreants and other undesirable elements from communities across the country

He, however, stressed the need for effective and efficient communication by the army hierarchy in achieving the objective.

Olowu also counselled that civil society organisations and the army's relationship should be strengthened, adding that there is a need for synergy for the sake of perception management.

Other recommendations are professionalism of the army, increased budget allocation, discipline and ethics to serve as a deterrent to ‘bad eggs’ and fifth columnists within the army and making recruitment process open and transparent in order to attract the best that the country can offer.

Prominent among the civil society organisations at the meeting include Campaign Against Impunity, Media Law Centre and M & B Initiatives.
