Daniel Bwala, an aide to Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has insisted that Nuhu Ribadu is the new National Security Adviser (NSA).
Bwala said Ribadu’s appointment as President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Security is the same thing as NSA.
Tweeting, Bwala explained that there has never been a record of two advisers on security in the Presidency.
According to Bwala: “Do not be confused, Special Adviser on Security is the same as National Security Adviser. All Special Advisers, including NSA, do not require Senate confirmation.
“Furthermore, there has never been two special advisers on security in the presidency, rest your mind, Nuhu Ribadu is the National Security Adviser.”
On Thursday, Tinubu appointed the pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as his special adviser on security.
Prior to this appointment, Ribadu was tipped to become the next NSA.
