Following the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari, the service chiefs have begun a total rejig of the security structure in order to bring a lasting solution to the aggravating insecurity situation in the country.
Legit.ng recalls that President Buhari hailed the security chiefs for offering their best in the fight against insecurity in the country.
The president, however, gave directives for the overhauling of the total security architecture and mandated the security chiefs to come up with a new strategy against the menace of bandits and insurgents.
Addressing the security chiefs during a meeting on Tuesday, August 4, attended by the national security adviser, Babagana Monguno, President Buhari expressed displeasure over the worsening state of the security of the country.
Monguno, who briefed the pressmen about the outcome of the meeting, said Buhari emphasised on the need for the service chiefs to offer more.
Taking to the president's order, the service chiefs have put all hands on deck by meeting on Wednesday, August 5, to fashion out new effective security strategies.
Chief of defence staff, General Abayomi Olonisaki, said he chaired a strategic security meeting with the security chiefs and heads of law enforcement agencies aimed at overhauling the security architecture of the country.
"Earlier today, I chaired a strategic security meeting with Service Chiefs and Heads of Security/Law Enforcement Agencies. The meeting was aimed at overhauling the security architecture of the country with a view to ending security challenges in our nation," Olonisaki said in a tweet on Wednesday, August 5.
In a related report, senators on Tuesday, July 21, asked the president to sack the nation’s service chiefs and also called for the resignation of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu.
The lawmakers made the demands in their respective contributions to the discussion on the security situation in the country during plenary.
The senators said the service chiefs should be replaced since they do not have new ideas in fighting insecurity, adding that top hierarchy of the military should brief its relevant committees on the factors militating against its operations to find a way forward.
