In a bid to effectively counter the insecurity across the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the rejigging of the nation’s security network.
The National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno, disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Tuesday after the National Security Council meeting held at the State House.
According to a report by The Nation, Mr Monguno also revealed that the administration was working on a solution to the security crisis in some parts of the country.
He added that the Minister of Defense, Bashir Magashi, was “working on something” to give effect to President Buhari’s earlier marching orders to service chiefs.
Mr Monguno said: “The president is angry over the declining security situation. At the last meeting, he mentioned it.
“What he said today is virtually a reaffirmation of what he said the first time. Yes Mr President said you are doing your best, as far as I’m concerned, but there’s still a lot more to be done.
“I’m 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.
“This is something that I believe will be done in a very short time, but I just want us to keep hope alive.
“I know how everybody feels, I know how Nigerians feel, definitely the president is not oblivious of the fact that securing the nation is a primary responsibility of government and I believe in his sincerity, but again, since he’s not an octopus, since he’s not a spirit, if he delegates to people, then the onus is on them to actually fulfil the legitimate expectations of the larger Nigerian society.”
