Following his dissatisfaction with the worsening insecurity in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari is planning a complete re-engineering of the nation’s security apparatuses.
This is even as he has again ordered the nation’s security chiefs to rejig their security strategy.
The National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (retd), disclosed this Tuesday while briefing State House Correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the president in Abuja.
The president, according to the NSA 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 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 in he is determined to restore that confidence.
