Insecurity: Give Buhari freedom to work, expert tells Nigerians

A security expert, Col. Ola Majoyeogbe (retd.), has cautioned Nigerian against pressurising President Muhammadu Buhari on the issue of security saying if he is elected to lead the nation, he should be given freedom to take security decisions.
Delivering a keynote address, yesterday at the Annual International Conference and General Assembly organised by Society for Peace Studies and Practice, Majoyeogbe, said the complexity of conflicts “is the peace builder’s nightmare.” He warned preachers stoking violence by their preaching to desist, adding that Nigerians must be aware that the management of conflict and peace building “is extremely very difficult affairs.” “If you appoint someone to lead the nation, you should give him the free hand to do his job.
The kind of things you write on the social media cannot solve the problem.

The bullet does not discriminate.
