National Security: Buratai, Boko Haram, Others By: Emmanuel Onwubiko

Published

Long time ago, many Nigerian scholars were constructively bothered about how and why Nigeria still remained backward inspite of the abundance of top rated and highly prized human and natural resources.

The interrogation about the paradox of a Country that is so enormously wealthy and yet the greatest percentage of the citizenry are miserably poor has resonated since the last five decades.

One of the finest thinkers to have emerged on the African scene Professor Chinua Achebe thought through this interrogatory and came to the philosophical conclusion that basically the foundation of the entire gamuts of the Nigerian deplorable situations originate undoubtedly from dysfunctionality in the quality of leaders we churn out as a nation in all spheres of life.

Writing in his classic titled “The Trouble with Nigeria” Professor Chinua Achebe agreed that indeed if Nigeria is to make phenomenal progress and achieve some kind of developmental milestones, the Country needs to just find a way of bringing charismatic citizens to the position of leadership in every fields of human endeavours because basically there is nothing functionally wrong with the Nigerian climate or weather.

Charismatic leadership in the calculation of some experts who constituted the teamwork definition.com is basically the method of encouraging particular behaviors in others by way of eloquent communication, persuasion and force of personality. Charismatic leaders motivate followers to get things done or improve the way certain things are done. This is accomplished by conjuring up eagerness in others to achieve a stated goal or vision. In essence, the charismatic leadership style has its basis in a form of heroism. This leadership style is almost of divine origin.

What are the Characteristics of Charismatic Leaders? If one may ask.

As previously mentioned, charismatic leaders are communicators who are extremely skilled. These individuals are very eloquent verbally and they have the ability to communicate with the people they lead on a profound, emotional level. One of the advantages of charismatic leadership is the ability of these individuals to articulate a captivating or compelling vision. They have the capacity to evoke strong emotions in their followers as well, (see www.teamworkdedinition.com).

Not done yet, these group of scholars also affirmed that In addition, charismatic leaders have the distinct ability to dissect and decipher any inefficiency within an organization. These visionary traits attributed to this leadership style often result from critical thinking, the compilation of facts and finding ways to solve a variety of problems.

In the year 2015, the concept of Charismatic leadership resonated with those who sought to win the mantle of political leadership in the Country.

This was exactly why the electioneering process that culminated in the general elections became vibrant and passionate.

Both the then incumbent President and his then frontline opponent who later emerged victorious Muhammadu Buhari took the conversations around the issues of charismatic leadership with added impetus.

Buhari was able to convince the majority of the electorate then that he was an agent of change and therefore imbued with charisma for service to fatherland.

Three years down the line the current President is credited with making some kind of landmark appointments that turned up as golden opportunities for the nation to witness phenomenal turn around.

One of his achievements however is the appointment of a tested and trusted military General with sound education as the nation’s chief of Army staff to be at the head of Africa’s largest Army. The emergence of the current Chief Of Army staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf was marked by tremendous sense of joy amongst the different segment of the body politics given that the General is generally kmown to be a thoroughbred professional soldier.

Nigerian Army is also amongst the very few institutions in the World that won laurels in global peace keeping operations.

The choice of Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai to head the Nigerian Army in an administration whose focus is on bringing about positively constructive change in the approaches to attain rapid nation building processes will for a long time remain one of the very best made by President Muhammadu Buhari.

General Buratai is generally believed to be a charismatic military General who believes in constitutional purity and who keeps insisting that the Nigerian Army must operate in line with global best practices and must adhere to rules of engagements at all times. His leadership has added academic embellishments to the leadership models in the military sector going by his overwhelming focus on capacity building for his operatives and man power development all geared towards building one of the World’s best military institution. He managed to bring about humility and access to the leadership of one of the best respected military institutions around the World in thecontemporary times.

For those of us in the organized civil society community, the current Army Chief of Staff entered the Guinness book of World’s record as the first to concretize the enthronement of mainstreaming respect for human rights in the modus operandi and modus vivendi of the Nigerian military institution.

He remains one military top General that does not believe in remaining in the cocoons of the comfortable air conditioned office space to dish out outlandish orders to his field workers. A serving Brigadier General once told me that the Chief of Army staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai is a believer in the saying that leadership must go with good examples.

As a charismatic leader he constantly visits the battlefield in the North East of Nigeria to direct the foot soldiers and to motivate them to maintain the tempo of battles against the armed boko haram terrorists. The welfare of his combatants is top most in his hierarchy of duties.

As a civil society leader who has had some forms of official interactions in the line of duty as defenders of human rights of Nigerians with the top General, I can attest that Buratai reminds me of some of the teachings of Plato in his republic.

Recall that the Ancient Greece Philosopher Plato divided his just society into three classes thus, the producers, the auxiliaries and the guardians.

The auxiliaries are the warriors, responsible for defending the city from invaders, and for keeping the peace at home. They must enforce the convictions of the guardians, and ensure that the producers obey.

For me, this is the locus classicus in the public conversations on the issue of charismatic leadership. Buratai exemplified an enforcer and disciplinarian who does not tolerate unethical conducts.

His footprints in the history of nation building process which is ongoing will inevitably receive illustrious commentaries by objective historians. He is nevetheless imperfect as a Being created by the Perfect Being.

One mark of a charismatic leader is the disposition to comply with all extant procurement laws and the readiness to open up to the demands of accountability and transparency which the current Chief of Army staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai possess in abundance.

Take for instance his rapid response to the cacophony of Freedom of information request on the expenses incurred by the Nigerian Army in the ongoing counter terror war as presented by some credible Lagos based civil society groups including SERAP.

Openness, transparency and accountability are some of the rare qualities Buratai has brought to bear in the discharge of his onerous duties even whilst he competently and professionally provides great leadership in the affairs of running the Nigerian Army. Nigerian Army has become a greater professional institution that has the potentials for further and better advancements which he seems to be putting in place. Above all, he is a man who is open to constructive criticisms and is a voracious reader. This i can attest to.

As Buratai Radiates Sir Ahmadu Bello’s Leadership Heroism – By Okanga Agila

Published

on

The first Premier of Northern Nigeria, the Sarduana of Sokoto, late Sir Ahmadu Bello is a figure whose memories endearingly galvanize all forces, especially in Northern Nigeria. A sage and foresighted leader, Ahmadu Bello symbolizes many ideals to the generations after him.

The Late Sardauna believed absolutely in the peace, unity and the indivisibility of Nigeria. His notion of leadership was one which rendered itself unrestrictedly to the service of his country, the poor and the downtrodden. Even in death his ideas and philosophies have continued to nourish the pillars of leadership and development.

The Sardauna’s legacies have remained unsurpassed and his shadows attract veneration anywhere. Progressive minded people emulate his timeless philosophies in work and leadership. It’s a rare prestige for any leader to be celebrated with the image or unfading memories of Sir Ahmadu Bello, whose truthfulness, humility and generosity have remained legendary and evergreen in the memories of Nigerians.

Few days ago, the Nigeria’s COAS and ombudsman of the counter-insurgency operations in the country, Lt. Gen. TY Buratai stepped into the prestigious league of Nigerian leaders who are recognized with the totem of the great Sir Ahmadu Bello.

Precisely on February 9, 2019, conveners of the “Sardauna of Our Time Heroes Award” deemed Gen. Buratai worthy to be doubly honored with an iconic award from one of the foundations of the Sardauna. He was conferred with the prestigious award for “Good Governance and National Security.” To ice his cake of fame, Gen. Buratai was also honoured with a certificate for his outstanding contributions to the peace and security of Nigeria at the same event.

These rare awards which were instituted to commemorate the uncommon legacies of the Late Premier are given to only exemplary, selfless and impactful leaders, who have made indelible imprints on the sands of time in their chosen professions. The conveners only recognize Nigerians who radiate the spirit, wisdom and selflessness of Sir Ahmadu Bello in leadership.

The NAF Conference Centre and Suites, venue of the awards was filled to the brim with eminent Nigerian leaders, who thronged to the event to share in the joy of this uncommon recognition to Gen. Buratai. The Chief of Civil/ Military Affairs, Nigerian Army, Major General US Mohammed represented the ever smiling COAS Gen. Buratai at the event.

However, there was no dull moment, as eulogies poured out in torrents of acknowledgement of Gen. Buratai’s outstanding records in combating terrorism and insurrections in Nigeria. The hall vibrated in general consensus that Gen. Buratai deserved the Sir Ahmadu Bello coveted awards.

The honour to Gen. Buratai streams from his perfect emulation and application of the leadership qualities of Sir Ahmadu Bello. The COAS is perceived by Nigerians as the “Sardauna of our time.” Buratai is both a sage and an intellectual, who has devoted these innate endowments to the service of his people and the nation.

On the streets of Northern Nigeria, especially, the Northeast, where Boko Haram insurgents for years imposed a life of meaninglessness and ennui on the people through its atrocious acts and heinous crimes, Gen, Buratai is celebrated as savior. They heartily cast him in messianic garments. He is fondly celebrated with the Hausa word, “Jan Gwarzo,” which means a hero of consistent and admirable qualities.

Like Sir Ahmadu Bello, who was a hero in political cum traditional leadership of his people, Gen. Buratai replicates the same posture in his leadership of the Nigerian Army and the counter-insurgency operations. The positive results within record time have continued to bring honour to the Nigerian Army from across the world.

The unalterable truth is that Gen. Buratai has remained a hero to both friends and foes. When Boko Haram’s raging fires, consumed Nigeria, threatening the peace and unity of the nation, Gen. Buratai stepped out in defence, when others shirked; he conquered insurgents, where others failed and provided succor to devastated communities, while others mocked them.

Gen. Buratai gave the troubled people in war-torn communities and villages peace and security even at the cost of his life. He personally visited communities and comforted grieving souls with the assurance of a future that will never again be threatened by incendiary insurgents.

The Army boss laid himself as a dependable plank for the people to return to their ruined and deserted villages, farmlands and marketplaces. He conscripted the Army into assisting returnees rebuild destroyed homesteads and provided amenities to ameliorate their pains. He restored confidence to distressed souls and pointed his finger to a brighter future, immune from all molestations.

He made countless sacrifices, deprived himself of all luxuries and pleasures or even the comfort of his personal family to ensure, Nigerians who wept yesterday over the horrendous acts of terrorists and insurrectionists never weep again. These were the ideals exemplified by Sir Ahmadu Bello. He lived it all his life.

Today, Gen. Buratai has brutally stopped the conspiratorial dismemberment of Nigeria by both internal and external forces, through honest and committed leadership of the Nigerian Army. He raised the flag of unity and peace at Nigeria’s darkest hour. He challenged and confronted the antagonistic forces against Nigeria, emerging triumphantly.

This was a vision which defined the silent, but impactful life and times of Sir Ahmadu Bello. Conveners of the “Sardauna of Our Time Heroes Award,” spotted Gen. Buratai as an offshoot of the Sardauna’s principles of leadership and convictions on Nigeria.

Those who met Sir Ahmadu Bello in his hey days, say truthfulness, humility and generosity were the pillars that nurtured his leadership of people. It earned him acceptance and natural followership from his people. Gen. Buratai replicates same even as a professional soldier.

Gen. Buratai’s humility both in office and private life is disarming and assails with passions of love. His colleagues attest that he is not bossy and even when a subordinate performs an official task he assigns to him, Gen. Buratai would still say “thank you,” a rarity in most Nigerian leaders. This is a rare characteristic of a great leader.

And no man can be this humble and truthful without rendering himself to God. Strikingly and like Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Army Chief’s minute devotion to God and the fear of his maker are enviable. It has been his source of strength, protection and rise to stardom.

Those who are not fortunate to have met Sir Ahmadu Bello in person, while he reigned, may need to just read a few books on Gen. Buratai to know that great men don’t die. They live forever because their qualities always manifest or resurrect in form and manner in other leaders timelessly and beyond expectations. Gen. Buratai is yet another exact replica of the great Sir Ahmadu Bello, who radiates his enviable leadership treasures at all times.

Okanga writes from Agila, Benue State.

SK Usman: Idyllic Officer, Iconic Image Maker Bows Out Of Service – By Philip Agbese

Published

on

Certainly, a big gulf has been created in the Directorate of Army Public Relations (DAPR) with the sudden voluntary retirement of its current Director, Brig.Gen. Sani Kukasheka Usman. This shining Army officer, communications expert and iconic image maker, who proceeded on terminal leave formally bowed out of the service of the Nigerian Army and our fatherland today, Friday, February 08, 2019.

Brig Gen Usman is one officer, the Nigerian Army and Nigerians would fondly remember his memorable service in countering Boko Haram Terrorism (BHT) disinformation and media hype for a long time. The devilish sect had mastery of propaganda, and circulated false, fabricated and concocted lies about their phantom triumphs and victories against Nigerians and the military in atrocious acts.

With SK on the saddle, insurgents’ propaganda suffered a big setback, when the COAS, Lt Gen TY Buratai who sighted his talents, decided to post him to retain him as the Army’s image maker. The Army Directorate of Public Relations is sensitive because it oversees the entire Army’s information management system.

Brig Gen Usman effectively dismantled terrorist’s propaganda and set new standards of disseminating information about the Army and counter-insurgency operations. To describe this humble officer and doyen of the media as endowed, efficient and proficient on the job is to state the least. But he validated his uncommon mastery of the rudiments and intricacies of managing wartime propaganda so amazingly.

Usman knew, wars are not won with arsenals alone. Propaganda plays an ostensible role. In fact, Nazi Germany wartime propagandist, Joseph Goebbels enunciated a guiding principle of war propaganda. He said, “The best propaganda is that which, as it were, works invisibly, penetrates the whole of life without the public having any knowledge of the propagandistic initiative.”

The retired Army image maker embodied this perfection throughout his service years, wherever he served. It was his efficiency that earned him elevation to the position of Director, DAPR, and the Chief Image Maker of the Nigerian Army.

And he served in this capacity for years before proceeding on a Senior Executive Course at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS). Upon completion of his studies end of 2018, he was re-appointed as the Army spokesman because of his efficacy in managing information and dismantling terrorists’ propaganda against the Nigerian state until his voluntary retirement today.

A communications expert and member of Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) Brig Gen Usman’s most striking legacy while in service was the spirited propaganda war he mounted against cyberspace terrorism. As soon as Gen. Buratai sensed decimated and defeated Boko Haram terrorists, including their agents had relapsed into cyberspace terrorism to create fright in Nigerians, he mandated Brig.Gen. Usman to lead the cyberspace assault.

He never disappointed. SK Usman preempted and expertly deflated terrorists’ propaganda timely. He was weeks ahead of insurgents and their sympathizers’ in deflating their fake propaganda, a step which rekindled the hope of Nigerians on the victory of the nation against insurgency.

Brig Gen Usman’s dexterous handling of cyberspace terrorism earned Nigeria, accolades, as former American Secretary of States, Mr. Rex Tillerson publicly commanded the Nigerian Army for its expert tackling of emerging cyberspace terrorism trend. Tillerson urged other nations under the spell of terrorism to emulate Nigeria’s confrontation of cyberspace terrorism.

Brig Gen SK Usman was born in 1965. He enlisted into the Nigerian Army as a Soldier in 1983. His first stint in military service was the posting to Headquarters of 82 Division, Nigerian Army, as Army Public Relations, Enugu. In 1987, SK Usman proceeded on studies at Bayero University, Kano (BUK) and by 1991 bagged his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communication. Thereafter, by 1992, he was granted Direct Regular Commission (DRC) as a Lieutenant into the Directorate of Army Public Relations (DAPR),

It marked the turning point for a prosperous Public Relations career in the Nigerian Army. Brig Gen Usman, has projected himself as a star and national asset. After cadet training at the then Infantry Centre and School (ICS), Jaji, in 1993, SK Usman was deployed to the Headquarters of the DAPR, Lagos; shortly after, to the Depot Nigerian Army and Nigerian Military School. In both instances, he served in the capacity of Army Public Relations Officer (APRO). By mid-2002, Usman was posted to 20 Battalion Serti in Taraba State.

The communications guru became Military Public Relations Officer (MPIO) of the United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL) as Nigerian Battalion 14 (NIBATT 14). He also served in acting capacity as MPIO to Nigerian Contingent/Sector West of the same mission.

By 2003, SK Usman was appointed, Acting Public Relations Officer to the then Chief of Army Staff. In 2004, he became Acting General Staff Officer Grade One in charge of Training (GSO1Training) at the Headquarters of the DAPR, where he doubled as the Nigerian Army Website Master.

The Military communications czar was in September 2005, posted to the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea ( UNMEE), where he served as Operations Officer at the Civil-Military Cooperation Coordination (CIMIC) G5 Cell and later, set a record as the first Nigerian to be elevated to position Chief of CIMIC.

Back to Nigeria in September 2006, SK Usman served as College Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Army College of Logistics (NACOL), Lagos. From there another posting in 2007 catapulted him to the position of Public Relations Officer (PRO-COAS) of the Chief of Army Staff.

He was again retained in the Office of the Chief of Army Staff and appointed Public Relations Officer (PRO-COAS), to the newly appointed Chief of Army Staff in June 2007. He served two successive COAS until 2010, when Brig. Gen. Usman left for post graduate studies by October 2010.

Upon completion of the course, Usman was moved to the Headquarters of the DAPR and appointed Deputy Chief of Staff (DCOS). And in 2012, he was posted to 1 Division Nigerian Army and appointed Assistant Director, Army Public Relations. He was again posted to the 7 Division Nigerian Army, and appointed the Acting Director Army Public Relations and thereafter, appointed the Army’s spokesman.

Brig. Gen Usman has attended a legion of military and civil courses, much as seminars both in Nigeria and abroad. These include Basic Arabic Course at the Nigerian Army School of Education (NASE), Ilorin in 1994; a 2001 United States of America Department of Defence organised seminar on “Military Communications with the Public in a Democratic Government;” where he was awarded Certificate of Excellence. In 2002, he attended various Junior Staff Courses at the prestigious Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji .

At UNAMSIL in 2003, SK Usman attended the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) Programme on “Peacekeeping and International Conflict Resolution;” Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, Accra, Ghana in 2005 for a “Media in Peace Operations Course.” He also attended Estimate Process/Risk Management seminar held at the Nigerian Army College of Logistics, Lagos in 2006.

SK Usman was also in South Africa 2010, for a course at African Business School Johannesburg, on “Professionalizing Protocol, Information and Press Duties for Efficient and Effective Administration.”

The retired Army image maker also attended the United States of America based Peacekeeping Operations Training Institute (POTI) on ” Global Terrorism”, “Civil-Military Coordination” as well as “Principles and Guidelines for United Nations Peacekeeping.” In 2011, he obtained a Masters of Arts Degree in Media, Peace and Conflicts Studies at the United Nations Mandated University for Peace, San Jose, Costa Rica.

Before his voluntary retirement Brig. Gen. S. K.Usman bagged several prestigious awards and honours for his hard work and excellence, among which include Silver Jubilee Medal, Forces Service Star (FSS), United Nations Medal for Peace at Freetown, Sierra Leone in 2003 and Certificate of Merit by Naeem Muslim Youth Organization in Sierra Leone.

The United Nations Training Assistance Team (UNTAT) New York also celebrated him with an award of a Certificate of Appreciation for his excellent contributions to the success of a novel Peacekeeping Course for Emerging Troops/ Police Contributing Countries to the United Nations in 2004.

He is recipient of the Chief of Army Staff’s Letter of Commendation 2004 and Force Commander’s Letter for outstanding performance as CIMIC officer at UNMEE and the United Nations Medal for Peace from the mission among others. He is also a recipient of General Operations Medal (GOM) and has been feted with the prestigious River Niger Star (RNS) award by the Army Council for his gallantry.

Brig. Gen SK Usman has retired home to the warm embrace of his beloved wife Hajiya Hadiza Sani Usman and his children. In his message to colleagues both in the Army and the media, SK Usman endearingly recalled the fond moments in these parting words;

“I am leaving highly fulfilled after contributing my best to national development, the Nigerian Army, gaining great wealth of knowledge, experience, and inestimable network of friends which I will treasure forever.”

He was most grateful to the incumbent COAS, Gen. Buratai under whose leadership of the Army a plank was raised for him to enrich his knowledge to the zenith of both his military and Public Relations careers.

PMB As God’s Will For Nigeria-By Sunday Garuba

Published

on

The elections are around the corner, and again, the hysteria that usually greets such exercises has rented the air. There has been lots of politicking going on around the country. Political strategists and analysts are at their best-giving situations and scenarios that would shape the outcome of the elections. In all of these, I know for a certain that indeed 2019 is the year of greatness for Nigeria.

As usual, clergies have made all manners of positive predictions as regards the future of the country. And this is coupled with the relative peace that has permeated the nook and cranny of Nigeria indicates that something good is about to happen in Nigeria. So far the few prophecies that have been released suggest that Nigeria’s greatness might be around the corner.

I am happy as well as sad for two reasons; one is the fact that since the coming of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, a lot has changed in the way we do things as a people and as a country. And I am sad for the fact that those that contributed to the downfall of Nigeria have all ganged up against a man that believes so much in Nigeria and they are hell-bent on undermining him and all the efforts he has put in to set Nigeria back on track. Now, this is the irony of life that calls for serious concern from all well-meaning Nigerians.

I am of the opinion that one of the best things that happened to Nigeria was the providential coming of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. What many did not understand then was that God indeed heard the cries of Nigerians who had been subjected to all manner of abuse by those saddled with the task of governing us. They took us all for a ride and stole our commonwealth. And they did all of these with so much impunity. The way and manner President Muhammadu Buhari won the elections indicated that God indeed loved Nigeria and would never allow the disintegration of the country.

This was on the heels of the various predictions on how Nigeria would not remain as a country after 2015. But God used President Muhammadu Buhari to thwart the plans of evil ones against Nigeria. And this much can be verified with the way and manner the president has carried on since he assumed leadership of the country. He has put the interest of the country first and above his interest. For him, the wealth of Nigeria belongs to all and not for a select few. And this has been his undoing and why the hawks that have held this country down for years are all gathered to ensure that he is voted out so that business, as usual, can resume. But they will fail. Just like the holy bible says in Psalms 91 vs. 7 “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” The evil plot against President Muhammadu Buhari shall not come near him if God is on the throne.

I am not one of those that would be blinded by religion or ethnicity and shy away from realities of life. And I would also not hide under the umbrella of faith to deny the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has impacted positively on the lives of the average Nigerians on the street. Take it or leave, President Muhammadu Buhari was God’s will for Nigeria in 2015 and he remains God’s will for Nigeria in 2019.

If not for anything, let us admit that he has freed our commonwealth from the hands of looters and for this singular act, they have vowed to take him out. But if God is for him who can be against him? No one. Also, but for his intervention, the Boko Haram insurgency would have engulfed North East Nigeria and by extension the whole country. Should we not be grateful to a man that has shown an unalloyed commitment to the Nigerian cause? Should we not appreciate God for this rare gift to humanity? Should we not stand up in unity and defend a man that is clearly on the side of the masses? Do we need a soothsayer to tell us that if not for President Muhammadu Buhari, the entity called Nigeria might have disintegrated?

All of these are questions the intelligent minds should ask if we must be honest with ourselves. We should not be deceived by the narrative bandied around by people with questionable characters. We should not fall for their gimmick that would take us back donkey years. I want to believe that we have gotten to that stage of our existence where we can decipher between good and evil.

President Muhammadu has indeed not failed in the discharge of his duties as president of this great country. This is evident in the numerous people-oriented projects that are ongoing around the country. And what do we owe this great and selfless man? It’s simple. Nigerians must unite with the voice of God to ensure that we defeat the evil ones at the elections. Nigerians must come together with one loud voice to say enough is enough to those that have milked us dry.

Nigerians must vote massively for President Muhammadu Buhari in the coming elections because here is a man that has not failed and his words to the citizens have been a strong bond. I am of the opinion that in the very least if we do not know or remember where we are coming from, we should at least know where we are going to. And with a man like President Muhammadu Buhari, we know he has been destined to take us to the promised land. Let us make no mistakes about this. For Nigeria, it is forward ever, and backward never. Enough is enough.

Bishop Garuba is the President, national inter-faith and regious organization for peace.
