Reports suggest that Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (retired) may be appointed as the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC). This potential nomination aligns with President Bola Tinubu’s commitment to restructure the nation’s security framework.
Major Al-Mustapha, who previously ran for the presidency under the Action Alliance (AA), has been outspoken about the country’s security challenges, particularly during former President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
During a keynote speech at a roundtable discussion on “Contemporary security challenges and their effects on the 2023 general election,” Major Al-Mustapha highlighted the proliferation of arms and illicit drugs in circulation. He warned that this situation posed a significant threat to the upcoming elections, suggesting that Nigerians needed to question whether the influx of arms was intended to bolster insurgency.
According to him, the country faces a leadership deficit at all levels, and the next leader must have the ability to navigate through the challenges and complexities of the nation, as Nigeria currently appears to be on the brink of a potentially explosive situation.
