Following calls by some Nigerians that Nigerian Security Chiefs be removed out of office, not left out, the President-General of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, Yerima Shettima has also thrown his support for the call, noting that nothing no helpful ideology remains with current Security Chiefs.
Shettima stated categorically that the country has no need of the current Security Chiefs who are out of ideas, adding that men with fresh ideas are needed to occupy their space so as to come with fresh ideas that will gear the country towards overcoming security challenges in the country.
According to the AYCF President in a discussion with newsmen, the current Security Chiefs have run out of ideas and have no new tactics in that will bring solutions to the current security challenges in the country.
Shettima said; “These crops of Security Chiefs should be fired. I have been saying this because when you run out of ideas, you have nothing fresh to offer. All they do is to continue to propagate propaganda and sponsor groups to sing your praises that you are working. It is a clear indication that we have failed as a nation.”
“We have failed and it’s not a story anymore. For me, they are long overdue for a sack.
“Insecurity can be completely resolved in Nigeria but we need people who have something fresh, those in tune with the realities of the day to appreciate the fact that yes we are at war and ensure that this issue of insecurity becomes a thing of the past.”
He a further pressed that insecurity in Nigeria can only be overpowered when Service Chiefs who are committed to pan-Nigeria are installed.
“It’s possible, it has happened in other countries. Even during the war, people come down and work out modalities with which they created a blueprint used in nailing insecurity. But in the case of Nigeria, some people somehow due to their selfish reasons are busy making much money at the expense of insecurity.
“So it’s important we get people who are committed to pan-Nigeria and would ensure that we come out of this. But we can’t do this with these characters we have today because we can’t dismantle corruption in our security structure. They have made much money and to that extent that this struggle will never end until we get people with fresh ideas who are committed.
“When somebody overstays in a place, you don’t expect anything more than this. They have overstayed,” he added.
