Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said he will not exit government as a failure.
This was said when he met with service chiefs at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday.
Major General Babagana Monguno, the National security adviser(NSA) disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents after the meeting.
“The President was briefed, the President is quite happy that there’s been a tremendous success, especially with the advent of the new service chiefs and Inspector-General of Police,” Monguno said as quoted by Channels TV.
“And he’s also made it very clear that he’s not ready to exit government as a failure; he is not going to tolerate that.
“He’s made changes and he’s ready to make further changes if he is not satisfied. He is completely determined to ensure that there’s a turnaround in the fortunes in the theatre of operations.”
The national security adviser pointed out that the meeting with the service chiefs bordered mainly on gains recorded by the military in the fight against insurgents.
“It is evident that a lot of successes have been recorded,” he said.
“Large numbers of people are surrendering in the North East as a consequence of the relentless efforts of the Armed Forces, intelligence and security agencies.
“We’ve never had such large numbers of people defecting from the other side back to the Nigerian side. This is mainly as a result of many issues within the theatre. Also issues of infighting among the various factions of the terrorist groups.
“But with the new drive of the Armed Forces, the police, the intelligence agencies, there’s been greater cooperation. Greater synergy, intelligence sharing, as well as our partners in the regional intelligence fusion unit,”.
