We’re revamping Nigeria’s security architecture – Osinbajo
NIGERIA’S Vice President, Osinbajo said the current security challenges the country was facing Yemi are preparing it for a greater and stable future.
The Vice President disclosed this yesterday when he received Ahmed Abdullahi Hassan, Yakanaje of Uke kingdom, Nasarawa State, at the presidential villa Abuja.
According to Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, the vice-president, traditional rulers have great roles to play in stabilising the country,
“There is no question at all that we are facing security challenges, but we are able to overcome them. The role of the leadership is to sit down to think through the problems,” Osinbajo said.
“This is a big country, so policing is very difficult. There is a need for us to reorganise our security architecture, which is what is going on now.
“I believe strongly that the reason why we are experiencing what we are going through today is because we are being prepared for the future.
Continuing, “a future where we will take into account all of the problems because if we haven’t gone through the problems we are going through now, it will be difficult for us to appreciate the importance of fairness and justice, the importance of giving people a voice and a representation.
“One of the reasons why we have some of the divisions and conflicts in some parts of the country is because people do not feel included in the management of affairs in their localities.”
The vice-president urged traditional rulers to use their power to bring about meaningful social change.
