Kalu: New Service Chiefs Need 6 Months To Understand Nigeria’s Security System by Racoon(m): 6:13am On Apr 27
In January, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed the new service chiefs — Lucky Irabor, chief of defence staff; Ibrahim Attahiru, chief of army staff; Awwal Gambo, chief of naval staff, and Isiaka Amao, chief of air staff.

Their appointment came amid calls by Nigerians on the government to urgently address the security challenges.
Speaking when he featured on Channels Television on Sunday, Kalu said the appointment of the new service chiefs will not immediately translate into improved security in the country.

He made the comment while answering a question on what the national assembly was doing to address the setting up of security outfits by regions.Despite the change of service chiefs, the security situation in the country has become much worse.TheCable reported how in just one week, over 80 people were killed and 60 kidnapped across the country.

“There is no day on earth that we sat in the national assembly without talking about insecurity,” Kalu said.We have been very concerned. We are making a very good effort to amend the constitution. We are working around the clock to see how everything that is amendable to be amended to set the country rolling.

“When people were shouting remove the service chiefs, it is not the issue of service chiefs and the new service chiefs you’re bringing now need between four, five to six months to be able to know the security system. It is not an immediate thing, it is not just removing one and bringing another that solves the problem.

“It is going to be strategic, it is going to be professionally and openly handled. You need equipment. You look at the neighbourhood for about five to six months to be able to rearrange the security architecture of Nigeria.

“Mind you, we are just lawmakers. We are not in the executive, our duty is to make the law for the executive to implement. The national assembly has never had unity like we are today.” Speaking on the solution to the challenges, the lawmaker said there is a need to return to the local government system and strengthen it.

“The country has been at war with itself. Most of these insurgencies are coming because of the collapse of the local government system where a lot of young men and women used to go to work, where you have a lot of councillors. When I was governor, councillors used to give a lot of road repairs, grading of roads, covets repairs. There is a need to go back to that system,” he said.

“It is a pity that this is the first time that people of Nigeria will go to war with itself. The government has done everything right but we have not gotten security where it is supposed to be.”

This simply means they are useless quota system generals who are not worth their candle.Same 6 months it took their dullard C-in-C to nominate & appoint his equally clueless ministers? So if Nigeria is @ war with another nation, how many months will they need to study that enemy nation?

Even the DefenseHqrts shamelessly retweet this shitcrap in support by a well known convicted crook? What have Nigeria done to deserve these imbeciles in government?

Why? Haven't they been part of the security system all this while? And if they need a whole six months which is half a year before they can understand a security system which they are supposed to be heading at a critical time like this then they are not fit to be in those positions. All these our politicians, the moment they open their mouth you will see that they have nothing to offer. The other day Tinubu was talking of recruiting 50 million youth into the army and now see the nonsense this one is vomiting. These are the people that are campaigning to be President of Nigeria in 2023.

“Mind you, we are just lawmakers. We are not in the executive, our duty is to make the law for the executive to implement. The national assembly has never had unity like we are today.” 
Useless rubberstamp and lame duck NASS united in corruption while giving backing to the executive rascality & incompetence beleaguering this cursed contraption of a nation today.

“The country has been at war with itself. Most of these insurgencies are coming because of the collapse of the local government..
False! Nigeria is @ war with itself because of the Buhari's government avid affinity for bandits, fulani/BH terrorists hence the indecisiveness in dealing with these monsters as well as heavily polarizing this nation across all manners of divide.

“The government has done everything right but we have not gotten security where it is supposed to be.”
Lie! The Buhari government have never gotten anything right.From the scary deteriorating widespread insecurity today to the economic inflation, collapsed healthcare, food insecurity etc all aspects of our national life are in abysmal low as far as every indices of developmental assessment are concerned.Orji Uzor Kalu is a stupid political sycophant.

For once you are being reasonable.

I think the new service Chiefs served together with Idriss Derby in the Chadian Army. That’s why they need 6 months to learn Nigerian security structure.

Una see say this man does not have sense?

So if he were president, this is the rubbish he will be saying?

Meanwhile, were we not told that both COAS Attahiru and CDS Irabor have at one time served as General Commanding Officer of Operation Lafiya Dole?

Lame excuse.


They have been serving in the Military before they were appointed and they know the situation of things.

They are suppose to get to work immediately and people like Kalu should stop making excuses for their incompetency



If Kalu becomes the President he will take him one year to study the situation of things in Nigeria and two years before he can form his cabinet.

I'm sure they would have been in the system for an upward of 30years.
They must have held critical positions in the 'cabinets' of the previous service chiefs.

How come they will still need 6 months to understand the system they've been part and parcel of?

This may just be the opinion of Mr. Kalu and may not necessarily represent the position of the service chiefs.

Wait for a rebuttal shortly

You look at the neighbourhood for about five to six months to be able to rearrange the security architecture of Nigeria.
This is highly ridiculous shocked
They should all better get down fast to business right now.
How many people will still have to die before they finished understanding whatever architecture?

We believe the service chiefs aren't new recruits.
They have been in the force for decades, so they should have been aware of what they signed up for.
We are talking about Generals here, not sergeants for krissake!

They should go after all Boko haram, evil ones among the herdsmen, bandits, ipob terrorist organization and any politician involved in sponsoring these murderers.

Peace and absolute peace is all we want in our nation.
These convicted criminal called Kalu is a shame to Ndigbos worldwide.
Better to keep silence than to open your mouth to start spewing po0.
What a Shame!

ensamy:
Kalu this is a shameful statement. Does kalu means that the new security chiefs who were already Generals in the army etc do not understand the Nigerian security architecture before Thier appointments .
Exactly our point.
A very shameless statement.
Pinuc:
The very stupid statement I just heard. Kalu keep quiet if you have nothing reasonable to say.
Very shameless indeed.

This is absolutely ridiculous, were they not part of an existing system ?

What this means is that , the president selected incompetent individuals with the hope of training them on the job , in the process putting the lives of Nigerians including the military guys on the fore front at risk.

The president and his team are not doing a good job.

It is going to be strategic, it is going to be professionally and openly handled. You need equipment
But how long will it take to bring in equipment to tackle these bastards causing all these violence and deaths in our darling nation?

Nonsense ....This one is also clueless and near brain dead.....are the new service chiefs foreigners from Malawi or Lesotho that they need to study the bad insecure lithosphere of Nigeria which they've been seeing and part of?
I keep saying it that we need youthful visionary political actors not these greedy clueless and corrupt mofos that have made Nigeria worse-off.
We as youth must create a permanent paradigm shift in the political terrains of Nigeria come 2023.

This people will just speak jargons all in the name of defending the integrity they have lost already,they were a top official before they became service chief and they have got credentials that made them deserve the post so why take 6months again to understand what were used to before they became boss finally??
