Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who recently assumed the presidency, held his first official meeting with security and intelligence chiefs, where he pledged to implement reforms to address Nigeria’s security challenges.

The country faces terrorism and an Islamist insurgency in the northeast, while banditry and armed militias are prevalent in the northwest and central regions. Additionally, separatist movements, oil theft, and sea piracy pose threats in the south.

Tinubu’s predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari, famously vowed to defeat Islamist insurgents but could not fulfil this promise.

Following the meeting in Abuja, Tinubu’s national security adviser, Babagana Monguno, stated that the new president is determined to build upon existing progress, reverse misfortunes, and shift the situation in Nigeria’s favour.

During the meeting, Tinubu emphasized the importance of enhanced coordination, consultations, and timely reporting among security agencies to improve their collaborative efforts.
