Going by President Buhari’s displeasure on the worsening insecurity in the country, he seems to have finally hearkened to the voice of well-meaning Nigerians concerning restructuring the present Security Chiefs as reports emerged of his plans to completely reengineer the nation’s security apparatus.
The National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (retd), disclosed this on Tuesday while briefing State House Correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the president in Abuja.
According to the NSA, the president reaffirmed his last marching orders to the nation’s security chiefs that their best effort is not good enough.
Monguno revealed that since the issues involved are operational issues, the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, “is working on something” likely to give a new direction to the security agencies.
The NSA also disclosed that the council noted that the proliferation of drugs is driving insecurity in the country.
Monguno said the manner of killings of their victims can only mean one thing, that the bandits, kidnappers, and terrorists are out of their minds.
He said President Buhari noted that Nigerians have lost confidence in the security sector and he is determined to restore that confidence.
