By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, says national security is the business of all Nigerians and not just the security agencies.
Adesina said this during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, where he charged Nigerians to be vigilant of happenings around their immediate environment, advising them to alert the security agencies of suspicious movements of strange people.
“Everybody is part of the security architecture in the country. It is just that the responsibility weighs heavier on one person or the other, but we all are part of it.
“If we have the mind-set that everything about security is the duty of the President that can only be wrong. Yes, the President has the responsibility to guarantee safety of lives and properties.”
The state of insecurity in Nigeria has continued to worsen as Just, four days ago, gunmen stormed a government secondary school in Jangebe, Zamfara State, kidnapping over 300 female students from their dormitories. The latest abduction in Zamfara is happening when banditry is increasingly threatening the peace of the nation, especially from within the northeastern and northwestern regions.
