Buhari changes personal security but leaves nation under risk

16 July 2015, 15:48 Peregrino Brimah

Nigeria’s president Muhammad Buhari takes his personal security seriously. After being sworn in, the president waited over a month before moving into his official Aso rock residence. The delay in relocation was attributed to suspicious security lapses, possible espionage and overall distrust of the department of state security, DSS headed by the service chief Ita Ekpeyong and NSA Sambo Dasuki.

Reliable reports have it that the DSS has been expelled from all sensitive positions in Aso rock.

It is understandable that where Buhari has a choice, he chose not to move into Aso rock because he did not trust the nation’s service chiefs and security departments. The people of Maiduguri have no such choice, nor do the people of Adamawa and Yobe. They cannot simply decide to not occupy homes under protection by these same risky chiefs. They cannot order an overhaul or select the departments to provide them security. They cannot simply handpick what agents and agencies to protect their displaced camps and rescue their abducted sons and daughters.

While president Buhari obviously considers his personal security seriously, can we say he does the same with the entire nation as he keeps the very same Sambo Dasuki, DSS chief and Defense and army chiefs Badeh and Minimah in charge of the nation’s security?

Based on the history it is reasoned that the service chiefs left at the reigns are likely planting devices to permanently undermine and sabotage Nigeria and larger Africa’s war against terror and Nigeria’s security capacity for decades to come.
