‘The Head That Leads The Body Called Nigeria is Sick’ – Gambo Jimeta
A former Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Gambo Muhammadu Jimeta on Tuesday reflected on the security challenges in the country and came out with a damning verdict that Nigeria is sick.
According to him, it is only a sick country that will be faced with the current security situation in the country.
Jimeta who spoke after the inauguration of the Committee on National Security compared the nation to the human body saying the entire nation was sick because the head is sick.
He said until the head is healed of its sickness, nothing else will work.
“The nation is like a human being. Whatever affects one part affects the other. The country is sick. Otherwise, how could human beings organise themselves and kill children in a school? How could people rob ordinary citizens? How could people vandalise electricity facilities? This is so because the head that leads the body is sick. So, we have to consider all of these,” Jimeta stated.
The members of the committee advocated for the creation of a National Guard to complement the efforts of security agencies in tackling insurgency.
They also want the Federal Government to emulate the United State of America by creating Department of Homeland Security to coordinate internal security operations in the country.
The delegates said the new department will coordinate internal security operations in order to put an end to the endless inter agency rivalry in the country.
