Insecurity: Nigeria Needs 200,000 Security Personnel, Says Fayemi
Governor Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti State Governor)

Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has stated that a minimum of 200,000 security personnel is needed to “quickly bring the current wave of insecurity to a halt”.

The governor expressed that the recruitment of more personnel into the armed forces is paramount.

Speaking on Tuesday in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, the governor proffered solutions to the security challenges in the country.

“There are two things that we need to address quickly to bring the current wave of insecurity to a halt,” he said.

“We need to have a conversation on how we can recruit a large number of people to join the police and the military, even on a short service or otherwise.

“By available statistics, we need a minimum of 200,000 personnel to boost the fighting power of our men.

“This number is very large and a potential financial and logistic nightmare, yet we cannot delay any further.

“The ungoverned spaces need to be closed up quickly by motivated men with the singular objective to save the nation.

“That takes us to the number two issue of financing and arming large recruitment.”

Fayemi said a cost-effective and quick way to achieve the recruitment drive is to reform the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) and encourage “willing” corps members to join military services.

He said: “With this, we can use the existing orientation camps to train willing and able graduates to reflate the security personnel under a special arrangement that will be worked out.

“That way, the fund that is currently deployed to the NYSC can be used with just some additional funding, which could be sourced through a national emergency fund for the next five to 10 years.

“Those who cannot join the military services can serve in their community without pay if we must still retain the NYSC for everyone.

“To incentivise those who may volunteer to serve, they will have a separate certificate and medal of honour in addition to having priority for military, paramilitary and civil or public service recruitment after service.”
