Let him sack himself first. he is the problem. No one can work with a President who is so clueless. Even the best of Nigerians cannot work with a leader who has no idea. He will soon find out that the solution is to sack himself.

Im so sad for this president. Its obvious thatruling this country is over whelming for him. Wrong choices all over the place, yet again he has made a change or decision based on politics rather than qualification. Sambo is a retired colonel (army) azazi is a retired general (army). Who seems more qualified? Why get a colonel to do the job a general has failed at. What are sambos qualifications in tackling terorism? So because he is a colonel and a member of the sokoto caliphate ,he was appointed? One would expect GEJ to properly pick out a new NSA to replace Azazi. Someone who is a true expert at tackling secuirty matters. Well i hope for the best. Lets see whethernsuicide bombers and islamic extremist will leave nigeria now. Boko haram are probably laughing wherever they are.

Anonymous said...

But... why? I'm genuinely confused. What's the reason for this exactly? Is this new guy specially trained to deal with terrorists or what? What's the difference? Well, I hope it makes for a positive change.

Anonymous said...

Hmmm, why a retired colonel? After retirement did go back to school to study security? Haba, there are young and vibrant minds GEJ could have chosen from. No wonder we not making headway, we keep going round in circles...recyling worn out minds. God pass Dem all!!!!

Again, the North has gotten her demand again, so let see who wins the war, Boko Haram is set on the nation because GEJ war bold enough to appoint bloody southern as NSA, poor you Azazi, your speech at south-south sumit has given you this mess. goodluck to you and badluck to the presidency for falling into the trap of the Northern elites who badly need the post of the NSA, bye bye GEJ for selling your personal security to the people you dont even trust.

Chikaka said...

Sambo Dasuki? SMH!

Musiclover said...

Diezani nko? Wasnt it Azazi that said aggrieved politicians were responsible for boko haram cos the zoning formula was not adhered to? The man knows what he's talking about. He came under fire for making that statement.

GEJ, pls We need to see some real action... The kind that OBJ carried out in Odi.

To think that GEJ refused to appear before the senate when they summoned him over the security issues in Nigeria... In other words, he's not answerable to them or anyone else. You would think that he became the president all by himself...

WE NEED ACTION PLEASE. YOU KNOW THE SPONSORS OF BH, START DEALING WITH THEM INSTEAD...

First fire ur brain cos am not sure if its working, then fire OBJ and ur wife and nija go better small

the GEJ cannot kill himself, judge is about to release more then 100 suspected boko haran member, so tell me would he work, as a GEJ and also work as a judge, he travel outside for meeting, problem, he stay without going, problem, he talk problem if he didn't talk problem. so what did u ppl want this man to do, even if another person come in as GEJ u ppl will still complain, ok he hav to share himself and security man and guide each and every naija person house in the night and day time, maybe that one is good

Anonymous said...

Hmmmmm Nigeria and Nigerians sef,he keeps Owoye azazi u complain,he sacks him u complain. No wonder he ran away to Rio,atleast dat cool breeze at brazillian beaches will help calm his troubled head. Sentiments so beclouding our comments,coz he didnlt choose someone from ur family or maybe he sacked someone from ur tribe nawaoo. I guess what Nigeria needs is 150million president coz no one can rule a Nigerian than himself.~BONARIO~ says so via NOKIA3310.

Ulom said...

I pondered on it too " y retired colonel that doesn't know shit about security' abi GEJ think say na family biz b diz? That he can jus call up anybody cuz that person is or was in d military?
This man is so pathetic! Gosh

Anonymous said...

Yes...let's be constructive with our criticism. Nobody is saying that GEJ is perfect neither am I his fan but Nigeria as it is today is been frustrated by some northern cabals.Remember what Buhari said before the last presidential election? If 'HE' doesn't win, GEJ administration will know no peace. Use ur senses people. Boko Haram is a creation of some northern elites whether we like it or not.

Azazi is a civilian,his job is to advise and it's up to Jonathan and the service chiefs to listen, approve or dissaprove.

Azazi talk say go after boko haram sponsors and problem will end and now he gets fired. Wonder who be these sponsors?

Now we are back to recycled "I am entitled to Naija's leadership" northerners. God help us with this new appointment

Will all this put a stop to terrorism? If I should be in his shoes: guess what? It started from 1 state to 2 and on and on and on. For a region to distroy the name of an entire country, my ppl is to fight back or else they will spread like wild fire if we keep running. Declear the areas states of emergency evacuate children and women and do what uncle Shegeh (OBJ) did in ZAKIBIM. Ask of the stroy. Wipe away all races there just as they have fun in wipping others out. ALL WE NEED IS TO FIHGT BACK! FIGHT BACK!! FIGHT BACK!!! NO RETREAT NO SURRENDERING.

NYC-1 says: You are sacked in Nigeria when you break ranks, not because you are not doing your job or you are doing your job. TB Joshua said it! He said a General will lose his job - abeg I am just joking ooo.

Nigeria kaki boys are just seating in barracks doing nothing. All they do is to attend officers mess and go back home to produce children. Why not engage them in constructive things like helping in fighting erosion?

Pls get ur self a brain,so let him come down from his sit and let who be the president? Those that will help the boko haram well right?pls we need God intervention and not all this hate

Nigerians and criticism Jonathan tries to stop corruption,una talk. He tries to fight terrorism una talk,plane crashed, u blamed his wife that entered Lagos on Saturday b4 d crash, will that lead us anywhere? what r YOU as an individual willing to do to change things stop pointing fingers cos ur remaining 4 fingers r pointing back at you. Jonathan is NOT the cause of our present situation in the country I'm not saying he's d man on nigeria's dreams but the best we can do is to be hopeful and positive not looking for who to blame that's an attitude of a loser.

Proudly Igbo said...

From frying pan to fire. Sambo Dasuki is IBB's former ADC and a Politician. He was Chairman of the MINT at one time. So, GEJ and IBB are so chummy that he has to reward him & he's just given his life to IBB's boy to protect him. Hmmm.

our security system is not working. There must be a scapegoat and it has to be AZAZI. I think he has been given wrong advice all along or oga JO has been playing deaf. For the new NSA i hope he can solve the problem. I don't bloodycare about is qualification. One thing is certain "History will Judge all of us"

pls what ever you do mr president do not i repeat do not replace azazi with a northerner that will be the greatest mistake that you will make in your security ministary

What you said abt GEJ inheriting problems is true, but hei si compounding issues with same people who were/ are part of the problems. Pure water bags being litered? Come off it,how has that contributed to security challenges or GEJ's appointments? There are young brilliant minds who are proactive and not these old and tired men whose loyaty is to steal Nigeria blind and contiune to consolidate their loot and expand their empires. Give the young a chance, anyway, the youth have not been given anything to sow because the old men in circulation have occupied the land. Go rest Jor
