Despite assurances by the federal government that the Boko Haram sect had been degraded in the North East, Service chiefs in the country yesterday expressed concern over the security situation in the zone, saying security report from that part of the country is worrisome. Irked by the situation report on the North East given to him, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Service Chiefs to beef up security in the country. Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan – Ali disclosed after a meeting between President Buhari and security chiefs at the presidential villa. The minister, however, noted that security has improved in all part of the country, especially in Zamfara and Benue States and in the Niger Delta.

He said, “This is a normal routine security briefing with Mr President. He just came back and so we briefed him on all the activities we had while he was away. It is an update of the August 2nd meeting. “The decision that has been taken is that we have seen that there is a lot of improvement in the security situation in the country, more especially in Zamfara and Benue States and in the Niger Delta. “In the North East, we are having worrisome report. We have looked into it critically and we have taken absolute decision”.

On his part, the Chief of Defence Staff, Gabriel Olonisakin, stated that at the meeting with the president, they reviewed security situations across the country, with a mandate from the president to scale up operations to make Nigeria safe and secure. He said, “We just had two and a half hour meeting with the president and commander in chief. We reviewed the security situation across the country in all the geopolitical zones and of course we made all our comments, especially the new operations in Benue, Zamfara, Taraba Operation Whirl Stroke, and Operation Saradaji. “We gave the extent of successes in these operations and we are to continue in this line of action in these operations.

Tinubu Plotting To Preserve His 2023 Presidential Ambition – Saraki
Tue, 21 Aug 2018

Senate President Bukola Saraki yesterday said that the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, was only supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid in 2019 in the hopes of achieving his own presidential ambition in 2023. Saraki was reacting to a statement credited to Tinubu yesterday to the effect that he (Saraki) had defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he felt he could not achieve his pecuniary and political ambitions in the APC, a claim the Senate president strongly denied.

Saraki noted that he had so far avoided exchanging words with Tinubu out of respect, but that he had to speak out now in order to guard against the general public being misled to take such statements as fact, adding that his longstanding differences with Tinubu had always bordered on matters of principle and the need for national interest to take precedence over personal benefits. He revealed that Tinubu had declared in one of their reconciliatory meetings that “he would rather ‘support a Buhari on the hospital stretcher’ to get a second term because, in 2023, power will shift to the South-west.” The Senate president described the reasons advanced by Tinubu for his defection as false and mischievous, adding that his main grouse with President Buhari was his contempt for the National Assembly.

In a statement signed by Saraki himself yesterday, he said that while he had all along pointed out the shortcomings in APC and President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in order to protect collective and national interest, Tinubu was ready to condone those inadequacies in the government for the sake of fulfilling and preserving his presidential ambition in 2023. He said, “I have always restrained from joining issues in the media with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and this is based on my respect for him. However, I will not allow him to create a wrong, false and mischievous impression about the reasons for my decision to exit the APC and present his prejudice as facts for public consumption.

“I have been consistent in my complaints to all leaders of the APC, including Tinubu, that a situation where the National Assembly is not constructively engaged or carried along in key policy decisions, particularly those that will eventually require legislative approval, is not in the best interest of the nation. “No genuine leader of the legislature will be comfortable that the Presidency will simply write a terse letter to the National Assembly on key issues which the federal legislature is expected to later deliberate upon and give its approval. The Buhari administration consistently treats the legislature with contempt and acts as if the lawmaking body should be an appendage of the Executive. To me, this is unacceptable.
