The Arewa Youth Assembly (AYA) has fixed August 17 to stage a protest demanding Babagana Monguno’s resignation from office as national security adviser (NSA).

The group announced the decision in a statement issued on Sunday.

Earlier in August, the group had given President Muhammadu Buhari two weeks to sack Monguno.

According to the statement by Ali Mohammed, spokesman of AYA, the security situation in the country deteriorated under Monguno’s watch as NSA.


“There are enough reasons for Monguno to have resigned his appointment, but he has refused to step down despite the mass killings across the country,” the statement reads.

“As Nigerians are being killed mercilessly on a daily basis, the NSA is comfortably occupying his office, enjoying uncompromised security, knowing these criminals cannot get to him.

“You cannot allow the security architecture to keep deteriorating. The NSA must go; he has nothing to offer. His ideas are obsolete and not contributing anything positive to the bad security situation in the country.


“We from the North are tired of these senseless killings picking us one after another. We are suffering more than any region of the country. The insecurity is contributing to poverty and shortage of food.

“We, therefore, want the NSA gone for good. We want positive change. We want an individual who is capable, active, brave, intelligent and equal to the task. We want an individual who can help address the security challenges.

“It is on this note, that we hereby call out for a mass peaceful protest to hold on Wednesday, 17th of August, 2022, at exactly 8am.

“This is to show our sadness and rejection of the situation of national security and demand for the resignation of the National Security Adviser, Gen. Babagana Mungono (rtd).”


Mohammed added that similar peaceful protests would be held in the 19 northern states at a later date.
