National Security Adviser, NSA, to President Muhammadu Buhari, Major-General Mohammed Babagana Monguno (retd), yesterday, blamed insecurity in the country on insubordination by other security chiefs who have continuously ignored invitations to meetings in his office.
The NSA, who held a closed-door meeting with senators in the hallowed chamber on proliferation of firearms, spate of killings by terrorists and kidnapping by hoodlums across the country, said the uncooperative attitude of the security chiefs has led to lack of central coordination of other security agencies in the country. Vanguard gathered that senators were told that the Office of the NSA, which is saddled with the responsibility of coordinating other security issues and offices, was being neglected because the office is not respected by other security agencies. The NSA, it was learned, told the senators that in line with National Security Agencies Act Cap N74 LFN 2010, his office had the powers to control and coordinate other security agencies on behalf of the President, but lamented that the office was not respected by security chiefs. DSS D-G, CDS ignore invitation to meetings Vanguard also gathered that Monguno particularly accused Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi

Gabriel Olonisakin, and Director-General, Department of State Services, DSS, Lawal Daura, of not honouring his invitations to attend meetings presided over by him. The NSA was said to have told the senators that following frequent shunning of his meetings by security chiefs, he reported the matter to President Muhammadu Buhari, who assured him that he would look into the matter, to no avail. Against this backdrop, Monguno was said to have presented before the senators, National Security Act, which should be amended, just as he was said to have complained of the police force, which requires adequate training and experienced manpower if it must carry out its responsibility of providing the nation with first line security. Following his presentation, the Senate assured that it would initiate moves for the Amendment of National Security Agencies Act Cap N74 LFN 2010, with a view to giving powers of control on national security over the agencies on behalf of the President. The Senate, Vanguard gathered, promised to critically look at the existing laws pertaining to the nation’s security system, with a view to amending them where necessary, to assist in the effective operations of  security agencies in the country.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the ‘Not Too Young to Run Bill’, signed into law on Thursday by President Muhammadu Buhari as victory for Nigeria youths.
PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Thursday in Abuja, urged youths to immediately take the advantage of the new law. “The party also commended the sponsor of the bill, Hon. Tony Nwulu (PDP, Lagos) and other legislators who supported the processes to reality. “We also commend the resilience of the Nigerian youths in getting the initiative through, in line with the vision of the PDP to allow younger Nigerians to actively participate in elective positions in governance at all levels, he said. Ologbondiyan said that before the passage of the bill, the PDP had since launched its ‘Generation Next Movement. According to him, the movement has already put younger Nigerians at advantage positions to participate in elective positions ahead of the 2019 general elections. “In line with the ‘Generation Next Movement’, the rebranded PDP, among other pro-youth incentives, had approved certain critical clauses and waivers so that the young people will actively vie

for positions in the 2019 general elections. “In line with our dream of providing enabling environment for youth participation in elections and governance, the PDP, after winning in 2019, will further lower the age qualification to entrench our vision that ‘whoever can vote can be voted for’, which is a global standard. “The PDP, therefore, urged the Nigerian youths to immediately take advantage of the Generation Next platform and incentives already established by the repositioned PDP to actively participate in the collective quest to rescue our nation from the APC,” he said. Ologbondiyan advised President Buhari and the APC not to attempt to present themselves as the architects of the Act because the bill was sponsored and pursued by the PDP members in the National Assembly and State Houses of Assembly. According to Ologbondiyan, the APC-led government did not show any support or enthusiasm towards the initiative.
