Nuhu Ribadu vows to restore peace in Nigeria as National Security Adviser
Nigeria’s National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, assumed duties on Momday with a vow to subdue insecurity and stabilise Nigeria.
Ribadu took over from former NSA, Maj Gen Babagana Monguno, following his appointment by President Bola Tinubu on June 19.
Also, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Maj Gen Christopher Musa, has assured that the Nigerian military under his leadership would restore peace in the country.
Musa’s pledge came just as the ministry of Defence is considering the establishment of Octagon and industrial military complex.
NSA Ribadu said the Tinubu administration has an enormous responsibility of securing Nigeria, stabilising it and ensuring peace in all parts of the country.
“This is a work for Nigerians and we intend to continue with what has been done.
“We will stabilise this country, we will secure our country and we will make Nigeria peaceful because we believe time has come for this country to enjoy peace, restore order and rule of law just like any other country in the world.
“Securing the nation is a continuous process. We will look at what has been done and build on it. We will count on your support in the course of discharging our responsibilities.
“Mr. President has a huge commitment to securing every inch of our country. We will work with all stakeholders to deliver on this vision. This enormous task of securing our country is that of all Nigerians, and all friends of Nigeria,” a statement by his special assistant on Strategic Communication, Zakari Usman Mijinyawa, quoted the NSA as saying.
Ribadu solicited the full cooperation of all servicemen and women, and by extension all Nigerians.
He said there was a need to unite to accomplish the present administration’s quest for a more stable, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria.
In his remarks, the former NSA, Monguno, said that Rubadu is well equipped, well qualified, well educated and has a very deep understanding of the complexity of the security challenges confronting the country.
He described the new NSA a man with the capacity to tackle whatever challenges that he might encounter having served in various positions, adding that Ribadu was starting on a good footing.
