President Muhammadu Buhari is unhappy with the current state of the security situation in Nigeria and has berated the Service Chiefs over the development.
Naija News had reported earlier that the President had a meeting with the service chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital earlier today.
Disclosing the details of the security meeting to the State House Correspondents on Thursday, Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (Rtd.), the National Security Adviser (NSA), said President Buhari urged the ServiceChiefs to redouble their efforts.
Monguno told State House Correspondents that President Buhari said though managers of the nation’s security had been doing their best, their best had not been good enough for the challenges facing the nation.
The National Security Adviser said the President declared that excuses will no longer be tolerated, even as he said he expects everyone to live up to expectations.
Speaking further, Monguno told State House Correspondents that the President also expressed displeasure over the lack of synergy amongst security forces and charged the various aspects of the security architecture to work together to solve the nation’s security challenges.
Mongunosaid President Buhari urged the office of the NSA to meet with Governors of the Northwest states and that of Niger State, for briefing and strategic organisation of a response to the Banditry problem in their domains.
