An APC group has accused the National Security Adviser (NSA) Nuhu Ribadu of using his office to pursue personal vendetta, saying the new administration is yet to constitute a security agenda.
While accusing the President Bola Tinubu-led administration of lopsidedness in the appointment heads of Nigerian security, the group in a release signed by the National Coordinator, Wasiu Oyebode Olakunle, wondered why most heads of security chiefs are from North West geopolitical zone.
According to Olakunle, apart from the Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Gwabin Musa who hails Zango Kataf, Kaduna State, Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Hassan Bala Abubakar is also from North West, as well as the Director General DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi who hails from Bichi, Kano State, another North West region.
Continuing, he further noted that the Director General NIA, Ahmed Rufai Abubakar also hails from Katsina North West Nigeria, Minister of Defence, Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, Jigawa, North West Nigeria and the Minister of State for Defence, Bello Muhammad Mattawale, who hails from Zamfara North West Nigeria.
Listing Ribadu’s perceived offences, the group said, “Putting in place his political structure ahead of 2027 poll amidst insecurity in the country.
“Turned to a journalist as well as a photo-journalist in the presidential villa most especially, when the president has visitors.
“Hosting and posting of pictures with political groups and Kannywood stars in his office”.
The group expressed concern that Nigerian military is increasingly becoming demoralised, saying the bandits are now emboldened.
It called on the NSA and heads of defence, security and intelligence agencies to be more proactive to secure every swathes of the Nigerian territory.
