BREAKING: Coalition Supports Bill to Allow National Security Adviser Hire Permanent Staff

Published

on

The Coalition of Civil Society for Transparency and Accountability has expressed support for a new bill by the National Assembly that would restructure the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA).

The Coalition said in a statement issued by its leader, Kabir Matazu, that the bill will allow the NSA to recruit permanent employees for his office and effectively improve the performance of his office.

According to Mr. Matazu, the existing system is rife with functional, structural, and administrative issues and is unable to offer a practical response to the growing array of security threats facing the country.

He said: “We note with utter consternation the unhealthy criticism by naysayers, who are averse to reform and change without necessarily looking at the merits of the bill if passed into law in terms of bringing efficiency and proper coordination in the performance of the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

“We wish to state that we are totally in support of the bill because its objective is in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, which will ultimately lead to the decimation of all terrorist groups and their sponsors and once again usher in an atmosphere of peace, security, and stability in our beloved nation.”

While calling the National Assembly to speedily pass the bill into law, the coalition urged the NSA to remain focused.

“We call on Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser to remain focused and steadfast in his unwavering commitment to bring the needed reform that will make Nigeria safe and secure for all citizens because that is what is obtainable in comparator organizations across the globe,” the statement added.

“Finally, we appeal to the National Assembly to speedily pass the bill into law to give the necessary legislative backing for the National Security Adviser to optimally deliver on his mandate of restoring confidence and security to Nigerians.”
