Unimpressed with the worsening security situation in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari says he will soon carry out a total re-engineering of the nation’s security apparatuses. But in the meantime, Buhari has directed the Service Chiefs to strategize towards winning the terror fight. The National Security Adviser, retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno, disclosed this onTuesday while briefing State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the president in Abuja. The president, according to the NSA, reaffirmed his last marching orders to the nation’s security chiefs that “their best effort is not good enough”. Monguno said: “Since the issues involved are operational issues, the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, is working on something likely to give a new direction to the security agencies.” He said the Council acknowledged that proliferation of drugs is driving insecurity in the country. Monguno said the way and manner at which killings were being done showed that the bandits, kidnappers and terrorists are out of their minds. He quoted President Buhari as saying  that Nigerians have lost confidence in the security sector and  that he was determined to restore that confidence.
