Time Needed to Address Security Challenges
Mike Ejiofor, a former Director of the State Security Service (SSS), has called on Nigerians to exercise patience and give President Bola Ahmed Tinubu more time to tackle the prevailing security challenges in the country.
Ejiofor believes it is premature to evaluate Tinubu’s administration, particularly in the realm of security.
Need for Adequate Study of the Situation
As a former DSS director, Ejiofor emphasized that the President requires additional time to thoroughly assess the situation at hand.
He noted that since Tinubu assumed office, there have been no significant changes except for the recent appointments of new Service Chiefs.
According to Ejiofor, these appointments demonstrate a balanced representation of the country’s ethnic composition.
Wait for Proven Competence and Inclusive Decision-Making
Ejiofor further explained that it is crucial to wait for the appointed Service Chiefs to prove their capabilities.
He emphasized the importance of their collective involvement in decision-making processes to avoid excluding any particular group.
While Ejiofor acknowledged the appointment of a naval chief from the South East as a positive step in addressing tensions, he expressed his belief that ethnic postings should not be the primary consideration.
He emphasized the significance of ensuring every section of the country is adequately represented.
Patience Before Making Assessments
In conclusion, Ejiofor appealed to Nigerians to exercise patience and refrain from premature assessments of President Tinubu’s administration.
He urged the public to grant him more time to implement policies and address the country’s pressing security challenges.
Ejiofor highlighted the importance of inclusive decision-making and the need for every section of the nation to have a voice in shaping the country’s future.
