NewsNigeriaPoliticsInsecurity: APC chieftain asks Tinubu to appoint ex-Gov Bello as defence minister

…Tells the president to reshuffle cabinet

Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Muritala Audu has asked President Bola Tinubu to consider a strategic reshuffling of the cabinet to tackle rising insecurity.

He urged the President to consider appointing the immediate past Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello as defence minister.

Audu, who is the Aare Atunluse Omoluwabi Oodua Worldwide, in a statement on Thursday said that the immediate past Kogi governor has some ingenuity in tackling insecurity.

It’ll be recalled that Yahaya Bello was noted to have done very well as Governor of the North-Central state to the point that the state was rated the safest in the entire north during his tenure.

Audu, while recommending Bello for the crucial position of Minister of Defence, cited the young former two-term governor’s exceptional track record and unwavering determination in tackling security issues.

“In the wake of escalating security threats, we must emphasise the need for a leader with a proven capacity to combat these challenges head-on,” he said.

Audu, who applauded Bello’s tenure as governor of Kogi, said the former governor had showcased remarkable leadership in significantly reducing criminal activities within the state.

“One of the distinguishing features of Yahaya Bello’s approach is his unparalleled fact-finding capacity.

“Bello has consistently demonstrated the ability to identify and address the root causes of insecurity, employing diplomatic skills and leveraging resources to eradicate threats effectively.

“Bello’s exceptional leadership qualities, dedication to the welfare of the people and his strong moral compass are all noteworthy,” the APC chieftain said.

According to him, Bello’s track record makes him the ideal candidate to lead the defence ministry and spearhead the nation’s fight against banditry and insurgency.

Aare Oodua stressed that the appointment of Yahaya Bello requires a collective decision by the Nigerian government.

He urged that political interests and sentiments be set aside in favour of the paramount goal of national security.

“I believe that placing Bello in such a critical position is a pragmatic and strategic move to ensure the safety and well-being of Nigerians.

“Banditry and insurgency have inflicted lasting damage on communities and claimed innocent lives for far too long.

“I urge the government to take decisive action and prioritise the right leader for the role,” he said.

According to him, Nigeria’s future depends on visionary leaders capable of eliminating the scourge of banditry and insurgency.

“With Bello, I believe the nation has found a leader ready to take on this monumental challenge,” Audu said.

He urged the government to make the right choice and save Nigeria from the abyss.
