Adamu Garba, a former presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, recently took to Facebook to express his thoughts on the latest attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train on Monday.
According to Adamu Garba,
Imagine if this type of train attack happened on the Lagos-Ibadan rail line.”
-line? Nigerians will not be killed by hypocrisy.
The truth is that the security agents’ well-being in terms of adequate INSURANCE and field allowances for operations is paramount. This is one of the most powerful morale boosters and proactivity motivators.
If the government can put in place a strong LIFE and disability plan for those who put themselves in harm’s way, it will give the field a great boost.
Our security operators’ communications and logistics systems aren’t agile. Coordination of responses is slow. Very sluggish. The logistics infrastructure, particularly that of the POLICE, is in poor condition.
ANOTHER issue is that the majority of the functioning vehicles supplied to security agencies are transformed to personal and private use.
In this context, a ruthless struggle against corruption is required. Aside from that, there is no maintenance culture at all.
Anyone who has ever reported an emergency incident knows that all of the elements conspired to make it difficult to respond quickly to an ongoing crime. An operative will consider all of the possibilities and pause.
