Arewa Youth Assembly (AYA) has called for the resignation of Babagana Monguno, national security adviser (NSA), over the insecurity in the country.
In a statement on Monday, according to TheCable, the spokesman of the group, Mohammed Danlami, said Mr Monguno has run out of ideas in tackling insecurity facing the country, and therefore should resign or be sacked by President Buhari.
“The Arewa Youth Assembly shares in the pain and agony of the immediate families and friends of those in captivity and pray God to intervene through His supernatural power and set them free,” Danlami said.
“The AYA notes that the growing audacity of non-state actors which led to the invasion of Kuje Maximum Prison, Abuja which led to the release of numerous arrested Boko Haram Commanders shows that even Mr President in the Presidential Villa is not safe, it is just a matter of time, these ragtag elements will draw inspiration from the Afghanistan Terrorist and take over leadership of our country.
“We have observed that this insult to our country’s sovereignty would not have been possible if the National Security Adviser, who is supposed to guide Mr President had not run out of ideas.
“Since Monguno’s appointment over seven years, we strongly believe that the man has run out of steam and does not have anything new to offer, hence, the honourable thing for him to do is to pack his luggage and return to his retirement destination, where he fails to, Mr. President should urgently sack him and get him replaced.
“The youths will not participate in activities in the build-up to 2023 general elections and the election proper if our brothers and sisters in captivity are not released.
“Also most of our Local Government Areas and communities that are now under the control of either Ansaru terrorists in North Central and North West or ISWAP in North East should be recovered.
“In other words, politicians are only welcome to our region, when we have every reason to believe that our forests are free from bandits and terrorists.
“The assembly strongly believes that if the amount of monies budgeted for security and defence were deployed for such purposes, the terrorists in our bushes would not have been able to withstand our armed forces for three days.”
