The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has stated that Nigeria is capable of overcoming all of its security challenges.
Osinbajo made the assertion on Monday, when he received the paramount ruler of Uke kingdom in Nassrawa state, Alhaji, Abdullahi Hassan, who paid a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa.
He explained that plans were already underway to reorganise the country’s security architecture. However, policing the country remains difficult, due to its size.
According to him, “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 reorganise our security architecture, which is what is going on now.”
The Vice President also assured that the current challenges will prepare Nigeria for a greater and prosperous future and urged the traditional institution to support the re-engineering process.
