Atiku calls for overhaul of Nigeria’s security architecture

 The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has called for an overhaul of the country’s
security architecture to counter the insecurity ravaging the country.


Atiku was reacting to the release of students kidnapped from
Kuriga in Kaduna State.


Commending those responsible for releasing the students,
Atiku harped on strengthening the Safe School Initiative.


Posting on X, Atiku called for the overhaul of the security
architecture to meet the demands of the threats facing Nigerians.


He wrote: “I am elated at the news of the release of the 287
abducted schoolchildren in Kaduna after 16 days in captivity. I commend all
those who worked tirelessly to make their release a reality.


“As we celebrate with their families and friends, let’s be
mindful that, like stage four cancer, this state of insecurity that has
befallen our nation is metastasising and needs proactive measures to stem it.


“I can only imagine the trauma that these vulnerable
children have suffered. It is recommended that the children receive
psychotherapeutic care from professionals.


“We also do not need to wait for the next incident before
putting mechanisms in place to forestall it. To this end, I recommend the
strengthening of the Safe School Initiative that prioritises the protection of
schools, especially in the areas that are most vulnerable to mass kidnapping of
schoolchildren. But above all, there should be an overhaul of the security
architecture to meet the demands of the threats facing us.”
