Worsening insecurity in Nigeria: Again, Buhari Blasts Service Chiefs

Nigerian service chiefs

Amidst worsening insecurity across the country and separate resolutions by the National Assembly demanding the sack of military chiefs, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday has criticised service chiefs in Nigeria over their strategy in tackling insecurity in the country.

Babagana Monguno, National Security Adviser, disclosed this to journalists after a security briefing held at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

Monguno said Buhari was planning a complete re-engineering of the nation’s security apparatus.

He further said that the President told service chiefs, who attended the briefing, that their efforts was not good enough.

“Bashir Magashi, Minister of Defence is working on something and will likely give a new direction to the security agencies in the days to come,” Monguno said.

Also, “The President said to the Service Chiefs, ‘you are doing your best as far as I am concerned but there is still a lot more to be done. I am more concerned about the promise we made to the larger Nigerian society and I am ordering an immediate re-engineering of the entire security apparatus,’” Mr Monguno said.

The NSA said President Buhari, however, ordered the security chiefs to reorganise their strategies.

“He has also directed that we must rejig our strategies both in terms of operations and intelligence. We must rejig our strategy to prevent further catastrophe; that we must bear in mind that we owe a duty that elected his government and at the end of the day, without securing the nation, all other things like revamping the economy and fighting corruption cannot be addressed.”
