By Ere-ebi AGEDAH

The need to reform the Nigeria security sector has been stressed by the newly appointed minister of interior, Abdulraman Bello Dambazau, stating it is a new dawn.          

The minister, while speaking when he was received by the various security chiefs under his purview, noted that the under performance of the various security outfits in the country is traceable to the inadequacy of requisite infrastructure to address 21st century crime issues.        

He promised to upgrade the security architecture of the country so as to provide the needed security to Nigerians.

He also warned that there would be zero tolerance for corruption, indiscipline and indolence among staff of the ministry, affirming that he is ready to dive headlong to address the challenges facing the ministry.                                        

In his address, Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Bassey Ekpenyong, said the staffers were elated to have him as minister as he was coming with a wealth of experience, noting that though the task ahead was enormous, it could be surmountable.
