Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has called for the country’s “impossible” and incompetent security chief to be fired because of the country’s ongoing killings and security challenges.
Dr. Saraki called on Saturday while visiting a community affected by the storm in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State.
In 2018 alone, hundreds of Nigerians were killed in several parts of the country, and Saraki believes that no society should witness this situation and should continue as usual.
“This is not something to be politicised. If somebody is not capable and cannot do what he has to do, let others have the opportunity to do it,”
The apparently angry Saraki said before blaming the security chief and agencies for failing to work together.
“We have encountered situations where security officials told us that there was poor coordination. One, A did not talk to B, and Be did not talk to A. They did not attend the meeting together and needed to do it.
“Let’s forget the problem of gatherings, it’s people’s lives, let’s eliminate politics. It has nothing to do with who is the Speaker of the House and who is the Speaker of the Senate. About Nigeria.”
But as to “politicizing the problem,” the Senate president said the National Assembly’s warning about dangerous trends in the country would have been heeded and changed.
“As you know, the National Assembly under my leadership has seen this danger a few months ago, calling for a security summit, and we have resolved the security architecture. We have said that the security architecture of the country It will definitely fail, “said the Senate Chairman.
In order to resolve the alleged failure, the National Assembly has invited security chiefs, in particular Ibrahim Idris, the police inspector general, but was not satisfied with its response.
He said: “Everyone is very clear that some service leaders are determined in their own wisdom and they do not need to work with the National Assembly to resolve these issues.
“There is no society that continues to see the kind of killings here and think that it should be business as usual. It requires drastic action, it requires a collaboration of all agencies and all arms of government for us to be serious.”
