The President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ahmad lawan, said that any security chief who fails to meet expectations should be relieved of his duties if he refuses to go.
The Senate leader made the announcement on Sunday, June 21, shortly after he attended a security meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, the Daily Trust reports.
He told reporters that the country faces serious security challenges and that efforts are needed to improve the security situation in the country.
Laban stated that the National Assembly supports allocating more resources to security agencies in order to improve security.
He said that the Nigerian military and paramilitary structures need more manpower to check the lack of security in the country.
He noted that the security forces need more resources to resolve the security situation, especially in the Northern part of the country.
Lawan said service chiefs should sit down because Nigerians can’t just continue without any time frame when security issues are resolved.
Meanwhile, security expert and public relations commentator Terrence Kuanum attributes the ongoing incidents of violence and gang attacks in parts of Northern Nigeria to the activities of failed politicians.
Kuanum said these policies are only focused on presenting the administration of President muhammadu Buhari in a bad light.
Speaking to reporters in Abuja on Sunday, June 21, kuanum said that the information available to Him indicates that the majority of cases of violence and banditry in Northern Nigeria are politically motivated.
He said that these criminal actions are sponsored by those who fought and lost to the ruling party in the recent elections.
Failed politicians believe that by sponsoring violence and other acts of crime, they will de-market Buhari’s presidency to put them in power instead of challenging it in 2023, he said.
Kuanum said the information at his disposal indicates that many failed politicians are dissatisfied with the military’s recent success in fighting insurgents and criminals.
