President Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to consider bringing on board people with adequate security expertise, like Major Hamza Al-Mustapha and others, as he plans to rejig his cabinet.
This is against the backdrop of the security challenges currently plaguing sections of the country.
The call was made recently by a group under known as Buhari Integrity Group (BIG).
The group in a statement made available to journalists on Saturday, April 20, argued that curbing the spate of bloodletting occasioned by the nefarious activities of bandits, herdsmen, and terrorists require men like Al-Mustapha who possess immense security intelligence and experience to tackle such menace.

The national coordinator of BIG, Amodu Samson Anyebe, in his statement, expressed confidence that Al-Mustapha has sufficient ability and capacity to end the lingering security challenges ravaging some parts of the country.
His words: “Buharis administration has recorded successes in the war against insurgency, kidnapping and other nefarious activities.
“Before this government came into power, criminal elements crippled the north-east states, Boko Haram terrorists controlled and hoisted their flags in numerous communities.
“And when we thought we’ve succeeded in curbing the insurgency, bandits began to plague the north-west, Zamfara precisely.
“We have capable hands that can find solutions to problems of insecurity and nip the killings in bud.
“And we, as a group, solicit and call on the presidency to consider men like Major Hamza Al Mustapha (rtd), because his antecedents show that he has the wherewithal to restore security and calm to our troubled regions.”
Meanwhile, elder statesman and leader of Pan Yoruba group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has warned that Nigeria will break up if not restructured in the next 10 years.
The 90-year old leader made the comment during an interview warning that Nigeria is not a united and healthy country, lamenting that the government has failed to protect lives and properties.

“A government that fails to protect lives and properties has no right to be in office, and the situation in the country today warrants that Buhari should resign now. He has no right to be in office,” he said.
