After spending billions of Naira on National security and failed attempts to address security challenges, the President has opted to reshuffle the top of Nigeria’s security watch men. Information reaching 247ureports.com indicates that the President of the federal republic of Nigeria has dropped the National Security Adviser [NSA], Azazi. The President is said to have replaced the outgoing NSA with Col Sambo Sasuki [RTD]. Col Sambo Dasuki (Rtd) was ADC to former President Ibrahim Babangida. Dasuki is the son of former Sultan of Sokoto Ibrahim Dasuki.
The Federal Minister of Defense, Dr. Hsliru Bello Mohammed, as gathered, has been dropped also. No replacements has been named.
It is believed the inability to curtail the excess of the Islamic terrorist group, the boko haram led to the sacking of the Federal Minister of Defense and the NSA. As can be recalled, the sacked NSA had diagnosed the causative factors to the prevalence of Boko Haram as laying on the doorsteps of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] – of which the President reacted to state that he “does not understand” what the NSA meant by the statement.
Azazi had been a trusted ally of the President from his days as the deputy governor of Bayelsa State. Azazi has served as the chief security officer of the State during the time of servitude of the then deputy governor – and then governor of the state – in the person of Dr. Jonathan.
