President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the service chiefs to find tactics to deal with the security challenges facing Nigeria.
The president gave the order on Tuesday after meeting with the service chiefs at the presidential villa, Abuja.
Addressing Newsmen after the meeting, defence minister, Bashir Magashi said Buhari called for urgent steps towards securing the country.
The minister also noted that the security situation in Zamfara state and the north-central was the main agenda of the meeting.
Magashi said: “Security, as far as this country is concerned, is the paramount important thing in this country, without security, nothing will happen and the commander-in-chief has emphasised this today that without security, nothing can go,”
“So, he has directed us to find ways, tactics and style with which we can get out of this and we assured him that we’ll do our best to ensure the mission is successful and we’ll do all we can to ensure the completion of this mission, especially when equipment and other things are available to support the course of our tactical manoeuvres and that we’ll do very well from now.”
