The service chiefs have received a harsh warning from President Bola Tinubu telling them to refrain from acting in opposition to one another and colliding with one another.
The president reportedly emphasized the need for coordination and emphasized that all security services needed to be working together.
President Bola Tinubu recently met with the service chiefs and gave them a severe warning, advising them to avoid working in opposition to one another and colliding with one another.
He declared security to be a primary priority for his government and pledged to protect the country from terrorism and all other criminal activity that endangers peace and stability.
The President said, “We will restructure both our security policy and its architecture to adequately combat this scourge.
“We will make greater investments in our security personnel, including not only a growth in their numbers but also better pay, equipment, training, and firepower.”
The President’s message was delivered to the State House reporters by the National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno, who also revealed that frequent consultations and extensive reforms are anticipated as part of the President’s mandate.
Additionally, President Tinubu ordered the security services to create a plan to fight crude oil theft, underscoring the need to change with the times and meet evolving needs.
President Tinubu met with the nation’s top security officials at the meeting, including Usman Alkali Baba, the inspector general of police, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, the chief of the naval staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, the director general of the Department of State Service (DSS), and Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, the director general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
Recall that Tinubu reiterated his commitment to addressing the country’s security concerns during his inaugural statement at the Eagle Square on Monday, promising to prioritize security alongside other pressing sectors.
