I’ll meet Nigerians’ expectations as national security adviser- Nuhu Ribadu



Newly appointed National Security Adviser Nuhu Ribadu says he will strive to discharge his duty and meet Nigerians’ expectations.


Mr Ribadu said this on Sunday in a tweet posted via his verified account.


He also extended his appreciation to friends and well-wishers over his recent appointment as the president’s security advisor.


“Many of you–friends and well-wishers–have sent out kind words on my appointment as the National Security Adviser (NSA) by His Excellency President @officialABAT,” the former EFCC chair stated. “I sincerely appreciate your felicitations and prayers. I shall strive to discharge this confidence reposed in me.”


Penultimate Monday, President Bola Tinubu appointed Mr Ribadu as NSA, the first without military background since the return to democratic governance in 1999.


The announcement of his appointment put to rest the speculations that the president might consider a non-military person for the position.


Mr Ribadu, pioneer EFCC chairman, will become the third retired police officer after the late Gambo Jimeta and Ismaila Gwarzo to be appointed to the position.


The new NSA was born on November 21, 1960, and was an intelligence police operative who retired as assistant inspector general of police (AIG). He came to the national limelight as a star prosecutor at the Oputa Panel, created to investigate human rights abuses during the military era.


Mr Ribadu was later appointed chairman of the Petroleum Special Revenue Task Force before he became the pioneer EFCC chair, tasked to counter corruption and fraud in the country.
