Sequel to the continued banter between the National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd), and the Chief of Staff (Cos) to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, over National security, Mr Jackson Ojo, security expert, has called for the immediate sack of the two aides.
According to Ojo who spoke with a Daily Post correspondent, the war between Monguno and Kyari, over a sensitive issue of National interest to public glare without caution shows obvious weakness and portrays them as incapable of being trusted in their capacities to the president and the country.
Ojo also stated that Monguno and Kyari are both capable of jeopardizing the country’s security.
“the office of NSA is a very sensitive office because he is the person saddled with the responsibility of putting together all security reports of every category, ranging from Army to DSS, NIA and many others.
“He is also the one to appropriately advise the President on pattern of action to take on issues revolving around National security.
“You will agree with me that anybody in that kind of position must not be too loud, he must as a matter of importance be a strategic and calm person.
“On the other hand, the presidency is the biggest institution in Nigeria, and the Chief of Staff remains the administrative head of that institution, appointed to coordinate every activity in all segments of the presidency, so, the two offices are very important to the nation.
“In a situation when the two individuals holding these very germane and sensitive positions are fighting on the pages of Newspaper over National security, there is a serious problem at hand.
“It is on that note that I am calling on President Buhari to sack the two individuals instantly without delay, before they embarrass us more and expose our security architecture to danger and ridicule.
“What the two individuals have done is a reflection of lack of respect for the office of the President, who is the Commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, and outright disrespect to Nigerians and Nigeria”.
“If you see a thief in your father’s farm, I think the best thing to do is to inform your father and not to shout, because if you shout, the thief will tactically withdraw and escape.
