The page 12 of Friday’s Daily Trust carried the above article. How unserious or unprofessional can anyone heading security outfit be by acting in this way? Why should the National Assembly talk with the new service chiefs in public? Screening candidates for security positions ought to be done without publicity, media.

You cannot expose your intention before the world in a situation when you don’t even know who is enemy, for or partner in progress. Both the NASS joint committee on security and the new top security officers have failed by giving information about their strategies.

Security is intelligence gathering. When you think aloud, you educate and inform your enemies about your capacity. But in a country where we believe that the soldiers with their guns will scare away criminals and even terrorists, it will be safer for the top ranking military officers to be a bit enigmatic.

I wish them great success so that Nigeria can be safe.
