Every sovereign country has constitutional provisions that guide smooth governance and this covers the internal and external security of the country. The country constitution is very paramount since that is the fundamental platform on which the progress of the country is accessed politically and economically. Therefore when the security agencies like the military and the police are weakened then, cracks can be noticed in policies and every daily activities in the country.
Flouting presidential directives

However, the disclosure by President Muhammadu Buhari in Benue state while on an official reconciliatory engagement and interaction with aggrieved traditional rulers, stakeholders and other relevant bodies, that the lnspector General of police he had directed to relocate to Benue state and stay there until there was normalcy in the troubled state, turned out that the lGP flagrantly disobeyed his directive. The simple question is, “ must Mr. President even spend time announcing his thought”? Doesn’t the president know what disobedience and disloyalty attracts in the security community? Must Nigerians be told that the president’s appointee flouted his directives.
The president should have done the needful, which is to had instantly fire him and look for a replacement. lbrahim ldris knows what he was doing. He fully understands the implications of his action.
