Former Nigerian diplomats have urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), to restructure the nation’s security architecture, following an alert of a possible terror attack on the Federal Capital Territory.

The ex-diplomats under the aegis of the Forum of Retired Diplomats in Nigeria, also called for the sacking of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (retd).

This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the group’s National Coordinator, Ibrahim Kazaure.

The group said, “As diplomats who had served our country meritoriously within and outside our foreign missions at different times in history, we wish to appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to take the alert of the possible terror attack on Nigeria seriously that we have seen from him so far.

“We have watched with keen interest the posture of the federal government since the alert by the United States Government, we wish to state that given our passion for our dear country, we are visibly worried about the posture of the federal administration toward the development

“Watching from the vantage position given where we had variously worked before retirement, we humbly appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of national interest, sack the National Adviser, NSA Monguno and the security chiefs.

“This should be immediately followed by a sweeping reform in the security sector through the restructuring of the entire security architecture. This becomes necessary given that the security network in the country has collapsed.“
