Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, has given a reason Nigeria is still battling with insecurity

Boss Mustapha

Mustapha said Nigeria has not reformed military architecture.

The SGF disclosed this yesterday when he received the 24-member advisory committee on the reform of the armed forces and defence in Abuja.

According to him, the territorial nature of the country called for a security rejig.

Mustapha said, “Reforms are critical and difficult to implement, but the step taken by the ministry of defence is a right step in the right direction to address security challenges.

“The reasons we are still battling with insecurity is because we have not reformed our military architecture, and considering the territorial nature of our country, there is a need for the security rejig.

“I am committed to anything that will transform the armed forces and in any capacity, I will do my best for the necessary approval.’’

Meanwhile, the committee, chaired by Alwali Kazir, was inaugurated in September by Bashir Magashi, Minister of Defence, to drive the recommendations on the reform of armed forces.

With the 2023 elections drawing nearer, tensions keep rising and more and more people question the stability and safety of the country.
