The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has revealed that Nigeria’s security architecture is currently being reorganized.
He disclosed this on Monday, April 26 when he received Ahmed Abdullahi Hassan, Yakanaje of Uke kingdom, Nasarawa state at the presidential villa.
According to a statement released by his media aide, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo said he believes “why we are experiencing what we are going through today is because we are being prepared for the future.”
The statement read:
“There is no question at all that we are facing security challenges, but we are able to overcome them. The role of the leadership is to sit down to think through the problems.
“This is a big country, so policing is very difficult. There is a need for us to reorganize our security architecture, which is what is going on now.
“I believe strongly that the reason why we are experiencing what we are going through today is because we are being prepared for the future.
“A future where we will take into account all of the problems because if we haven’t gone through the problems we are going through now, it will be difficult for us to appreciate the importance of fairness and justice, the importance of giving people a voice and a representation. I am very pleased to hear about what you are doing.
“One of the reasons why we have some of the divisions and conflicts in the parts of the country is because people do not feel included in the management of affairs in their localities.”
