EXCLUSIVE: NSA Monguno attacks Abba Kyari over police equipment contract

New documents show top presidential aides have been locked in a superiority clash over the use of presidential powers.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; with Chief of Staff, Malam Abba Kyari; NSA Major General Babagana Monguno Rtd Related News A lucrative contract for the procurement of defence equipment for the Nigeria Police Force appeared to have triggered the raging confrontation at the highest levels of the Buhari administration, PREMIUM TIMES can report. Freshly obtained documents showed how the national security adviser, Babagana Monguno, tackled President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari, for allegedly overriding a previous directive of the president in a contract to procure equipment for the police from the United Arab Emirates. In the December 9, 2019 letter that was addressed to the police affairs minister and police inspector-general, Mr Monguno, a retired major-general, described Mr Kyari’s action as “reckless and irresponsible”, warning that it was capable of ridiculing Nigeria as an unserious nation before a reliable international partner. Mr Monguno warned in the letter that Mr Kyari has been getting away with disregarding presidential orders to impose his own decisions — even though he had no constitutional power to issue directives on matters bordering on security. The NSA said only himself, as the head of multiple national security panels, and the defence minister have constitutional roles to act on security matters. The documents appeared a part of a series of circulars issued between Mr Monguno and Mr Kyari between May and December 2019. The first part of the documents to leak was first published by PREMIUM TIMES on Monday afternoon. It detailed how Mr Monguno accused Mr Kyari of hampering efforts to resolve insecurity in the country, sparking nationwide uproar and call for the president to take charge of his administration’s security measures. The first memo also carried the same December 9, 2019 date, but was addressed to all crucial offices of national security coordination. The latest memo appeared to have been sent to inform the police affairs minister and the inspector-general on the background of the equipment and how Mr Kyari might be frustrating the procurement process. It was not immediately clear which equipment were being procured by the Buhari administration from the Emirati, but Mr Monguno disclosed that the International Golden Group, a Dubai-based defence and security dealer, was the firm agreed between Mr Buhari and the UAE Crown Prince in 2016, the memo showed. Neither the president nor anyone in his cabinet has commented on the crisis at the presidency since Monday. Mr Kyari and two presidential spokespersons, Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu, rejected requests for comments on the memo Monday afternoon. They also did not return similar requests based on the latest documents that shed additional light into the rancour. Nigeria has been grappling with multiple security problems, most of which security experts have said should ordinarily be handled by the police. The military has been locked in a decade-long battle with Boko Haram insurgents ravaging the country’s northwestern flank and the neighbouring Niger, Cameroon and Chad. Mr Buhari’s repeated promises to curtail insecurity have come short for the most part, despite billions spent on military procurement and capacity-building efforts. Mr Monguno, who has continued to act as the NSA even though his appointment has not been renewed for Mr Buhari’s second term, has been at the centre of coordinating efforts to combat insecurity. But his labour, he said in the memo, has been regularly frustrated by Mr Kyari’s “meddlesomeness,” which has pitted the chief of staff to not just the NSA but other key administration officials over the years, including Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo . The implication for the raging fall-out between the top aides of the president has dominated debates since the first memo was published on Monday. The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded a thorough investigation into the fallout, lamenting its potential detriment to national security.

Premium times when are u guys going to carry d news of gov Wike giving 500 million of rivers state monies to mrs odilis husband 4 days after she delivered d Bayelsa pdp/apc gubernatorial elections judgements to fund mr odilis private university! When? Why has Mr President made his CoS so powerful that he now feels he is the alfa and omega of this administration? I really can't just figure it out.

What will burst all the lies this government has been hiding will be who steals more or how to share the stolen money we are watching Munguno will leave the Villa for Supreme leader Abbah kiyari These are the Nonsense Happening under a Saint Govt This same kyari had issue with Aisha Buhari Simply because the president is lifeless

Biafran adage says 'If ear refuses to hear death warnings, when the head is being cut off, that ear will go with it' I am telling my fellow Biafra coastal region people who refuse to heed to NNAMDI KANU warnings. Today Delta state etc are on Fulani herdsmen killing rampage. Bubu is fighting kwaraption oo

Prayers of the just and the blood of the innocent are working Some people will definitely go to jail when this administration ends. I'm becoming very optimistic that those who consciously or unconsciously ruined Nigeria will pay for their crimes against law abiding and vulnerable Nigerians.

PDP reacts to NSA Monguno, Abba Kyari tussle over national security - Daily Post NigeriaThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the allegations by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd), Monguno in a God will gam ye both head and IPOB will be vindicate, that Mbuhari is dead and that Abba Kyri is the president using the recruited toy Jubrin El-Sudani as Mbuhari.

Hiiiiaaaaaaa. May God continue to scatter n disrupt all of them. They will never know peace . Amen This Kyari behaves as if, the substantive President! This Mongono and Abba Kyari saga sef🤔😏☹.... bottom line- MBuhari's lack of capacity and intellect created the vacuum which sneaky Abba slithered into; now he is taking control of all levers of authority in the Presidency.

The president is a disgrace to his military background. Being sidelined/disobeyed and ridiculed by his own COS without consequences Why should any one be surprise or we forgot the order Buhari gave the ministers during their inauguration on his 2nd term coming, that ministers must go through d chief of staffs & d SSG Boss Mustaphy if they want to see him or discuss anything with him, Buhari made him demigod.

Funny though...the president can't read Oya the integrity defenders come and do your job...na GEJ or PDP 16years nai cause am abi...mumu govt Bush meat go catch hunter Many people's said the president is incompetent, but majority of people ignored their call and vote for him again. The truth is like A B C D, now every rational and reasonable Nigerian may understand the admonished given by good Samaritans.

BashirAhmaad Oya comman defend your people o. Do your job.

segalink I always said that Buhari doesn't have the power to control the cabals. That's how sloppy they've been handling the security of the country. No wonder Boko Haram is still so effective. No one can be more incompetent than Buhari. What is keeping the NSA from ordering the arrest of Abba Kyria for Treason?

Am not surprised. Una just dey start una never see anything 🙄 Abba Kyari is an enemy of state... he has committed treasonable offenses. The president might not even be safe... The political economy of insecurity We are used to such outburst. Nothing will come of it all. The country can go ahead and burn. It doesn't concern them provided blood money keeps flowing. Fighting insecurity is a brisk business in my country.

segalink But the letter didn't state anything abt police equipment contract. Where is dis headline from? 2 seconds everywhere......
