Why It’s Hard to Police Nigeria – Osinbajo
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said the massive size of the country has made it more tasking to tackle the security challenges across the country.

He stressed the need to rejig the security architecture of the country, noting it is currently ongoing to empower security agencies to combat the security challenge rearing its ugly head across Nigeria.

This was contained in Osinbajo’s speech when he received the traditional ruler of Yakanaje Uke in Nasarawa State, Alhaji Ahmed Abdullahi Hassan, on a courtesy visit at the presidential villa, Abuja.

However, he was confident that the country will be able to overcome the security challenges, saying the Nigerian government was restrategising the entire security architecture in the country.

According to a statement issued by his spokesperson. Laolu Akande on Tuesday, Osinbajo said, “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 reorganise our security architecture, which is what is going on now.”

The Vice President was confident that the present challenges will prepare Nigeria for a greater and prosperous future, urging the traditional institution to support the re-engineering process.

The VP added, “I believe strongly that the reason why we are experiencing what we are going through today is that 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.”
