Monguno: Nothing About The Service Chiefs Was Discussed



National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, said that the president’s meeting with the Service Chiefs, which came hours after the members of the Senate asked that the president fired the Service Chiefs over their inabilities to curb the spate of killings in the country, was not to discuss their fate.

Nigerians who, after getting wind of the meeting with the heads of armed chiefs, speculated that their jobs and ineffective strategies in tackling insecurity were at stake.

Monguno did well to dismiss these rumors in a chat with State House correspondents, after the meeting with the president, saying that nothing on the jobs of the service chiefs was discussed. 

“The issue of the National Assembly resolution did not come up at the meeting,’’ Monguno said.

“The meeting basically made an appraisal of the current security situation in the country and took a look at the possibilities, the opportunities available to government in addressing most of the recent challenges.

“There were discussions and at the end of the day, the most important thing that we came up with is the need for collaboration, both between governmental agencies and the larger Nigerian society because of the type of insurgencies we are faced with, the complexities, the multiplicity of all kinds of issues.

“There is a need for both parties, governmental agencies on one hand and the larger society to collaborate more vigorously. There is a need for us to deal with these problems in a comprehensive manner.

“Therefore, the council has decided to take a closer look at issues that will help us not just at the federal level or at the state level, but right down to the local government level.

“But this is going to be done after due consultation with the relevant stakeholders.”
