Forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairmen has told President Bola Tinubu to wield the big stick against any security chief not living up to responsibility.

Speaking to correspondents after a meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday, the secretary of the forum, Alphonsus Oga Eba, who was flanked by other members, said the issue of insecurity in the country was discussed in the meeting.

Responding to a question on recent kidnappings, Eba, said: “On the question of the kidnap of pupils in Kaduna State, yes it forms one of the issues about the general insecurity in the country that we raised as a matter of concern to Mr. President.

“We said we are more concerned because from our vintage position, it is very clear there are a lot of distractions going on in this country. There are activities of criminals that are being perpetrated to put the government and our party in bad light.

“We have commended Mr. President for the support, moral and financial that he has given to security agencies.

“But we came with one humble advice that we gave to Mr. President today as forum of chairmen to say that nobody expects Mr. President as Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to carry arms and go to the battlefield.

“That is why he has his lieutenants, as security agencies in various areas and what we have told Mr. President today, by way of advice, that it is time for people to be held accountable for the actions.

“Where a district police officer or a commissioner of police or whoever that is in control of whatever security architecture at whatever level is found wanting, Mr. President should wield the big stick. That was part of what we discussed today.
