Northern govs hail removal of NSA, defence minister

The Northern States Governors Forum (NGF) has described the decision of President Goodluck Jonathan to remove Minister of Defense Dr. Bello Haliru and National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Andrew Aziza (rtd) as a good step in a right direction.

Chairman of NSGF and Niger State governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, made the remark during the annual Nupe Day Festival in Lapai at the weekend, saying it was a right decision considering the prevailing insecurity in the country.

He said the present security challenges required proactive measures at all levels, saying the president’s decision was apt and timely toward addressing the ugly situation.

“The step taken by the president showed that he is concerned over what every one of us has expressed concern upon in the country and I will like to urge all Nigerians to support the president in a way that we bring the situation under control”, he said.
