Osinbajo reveals the reorganizing of Nigeria’s security architecture
Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President, has disclosed that the Federal Government is reorganizing the entire security architecture in the country because policing is very difficult.
The Vice President made the revelation on Monday when he received at the Presidential Villa, His Royal Majesty, Yakanaje Uke, (in Nasarawa State), Alhaji Dr. Ahmed Abdullahi Hassan who paid him a courtesy visit.
He made it clear that the present challenges would prepare Nigeria for a greater and prosperous future, urging the traditional institution to support the re-engineering process.
The Spokesman to Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
According to the Vice President, “there is no question at all that we are facing security challenges, but we are able to overcome them. The role of the leadership is to sit down to think through the problems.
“This is a big country, so policing is very difficult. There is a need for us to reorganize our security architecture, which is what is going on now.”
He added, “I believe strongly that the reason why we are experiencing what we are going through today is because we are being prepared for the future.
“A future where we will take into account all of the problems because if we haven’t gone through the problems we are going through now, it will be difficult for us to appreciate the importance of fairness and justice, the importance of giving people a voice and a representation. I am very pleased to hear about what you are doing.”

The Vice President explained that “one of the reasons why we have some of the divisions and conflicts in some parts of the country is because people do not feel included in the management of affairs in their localities.”
