Buhari: No Haste In Withdrawal Of Military From Troubled Communities by zakim(m): 11:24pm On Jan 03, 2020
President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured Nigerians that withdrawal of the military from areas where peace had been restored will not be done in a manner that will expose communities to more risks of attacks. President Buhari gave the assurance on Friday following concerns and appeals from governors and community leaders over the proposed withdrawal.

The president, in a statement issued by his media aide Garba Shehu said the withdraw exercise will be gradual and carefully planned, not abrupt or arbitrary to jeopardise the success already recorded by the military. Buhari said the administration would not abandon citizens in need of protection.

He urged Nigerians, especially public affairs analysts, to carefully study the statement following a security council meeting with service chiefs that the withdrawal of troops will be done after an “assessment” to determine areas where peace had returned to enable civil authorities assume full control. President Buhari said where it is determined that the withdrawal will not in any way jeopardize peace already achieved, the military pull out will be in a careful and gradual way.

“You don’t need to worry. We will not expose our people and their communities to harm or danger,” the president assured. “The withdrawal is to allow the military focus on its primary duty of defending the nation against external aggression. It is the duty of the police to handle internal security since Nigeria is not at war.

“The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps will support the police to provide internal security. When it is time to withdraw, nothing will be rushed,” he added.

Nigeria can only enjoy relative peace and internal security if the government ever decides to focus on improving the standard of education on all levels. This will bring about development and progress in the future. The Military in other developed nations worry mostly about external aggression unlike my dear nation still battling with insurgency, menace of herdsmen, oil bunkering and the rest of them. God help our leaders.

That's a good one, but please note that when the military withdrawals are to be executed, it should not only be gradual but also tactical. If need be, places with long history of volatility should be allowed to retain the services of the military personnel for a longer time.
As per the security risk, withdrawal processes should be off media.

Such a move should be guided by current security assessment of the area and common sense.
