National Security Adviser - Sambo Dasuki

 

National Security. The phrase first appeared in the United States prior to the great stock market crash in 1929. What's national security? Basically it is the use of diplomacy, economic, political and military means in order to protect your nation. National Security really became a problem during World War II. The concern over foreign spy's and the loss of technology that may damage national security was full fledge and intense. After the war, the cold war involving the United States and the Soviet Union, began an entire new perspective on the definition of, national security. Nearly all the concern surrounded the build-up of Nuclear capability on both sides. We'd became a nation in fear, fear from the technology we created, of the number of choices and the devastation it could apply.

Over time, we were confronted with many national security issues, that threatened our national security. However, it would not really hit home, until following the cold war had ended, before the birth of a brand new century had begun. On September 11th, 2001, an enemy attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, changed our perspective on national security forever. Terrorists had entered our nation, lived and trained to fly planes here, and then hijacked commercial jets and intentionally flew them to the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The nation mourned the loss of thousands. Furthermore, a nation was stunned at the weakness of our, national security. Having a valid identification card would be vital than ever. Ways of ensuring identification would not be exactly the same again.

In early 2015, while serving as Nigerian national security advisor, Sambo Dasuki informed the Independent National Electoral Commission "that operations against Boko Haram militants meant the military "will struggle to provide adequate security" for the upcoming 2015 Nigerian general election. The elections, scheduled for 15 February 2015, were postponed until March 28

Also in April 2015, he insisted that the Nigerian military will ensure that Sambisa Forest the last Fortress of Boko Haram could be liberated ahead of the inauguration of new government of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2015

Coincidentally, on the one year anniversary of the abduction of Chibok school girls, Dasuki insisted that government was concerned about the welfare of each and every single Nigerian not just the Chibok girls, as other innocent Nigerian girls, boys, men and women were abducted by the terrorists and all efforts were being produced by security agencies to rescue them. Significantly more than 300 abductees were rescued from captivity by the military couple of weeks afterwards.


Over the next few months a fresh branch of government was formed, the Department of Homeland Security. The Patriot Act was also eventually placed into law. This gave the federal government more rights to take whatever measures were needed, to safeguard our national security, even when it meant that sometimes, individual rights may be overshadowed. Mass surveillance was installed. Immediate security measures were installed into our nations airports, to guard our passengers, our planes and now, our national landmarks. Having proper identification cards and paperwork became a lot more essential. That which you might take on board a plane became more and more examined.

Almost immediately, some Americans complained about their individual rights being violated. New national security procedures became increasingly controversial to some. What had way back when began with the necessity of proper identification, had passed into an entirely new light. New technology had been invented to make that system better still and stronger. Where will it all result in? Only time will tell. The controversy over what protects us, and what violates us, will continue steadily to linger in a political tug of war. National security is based on the principle that the protection of a nation, can sometimes, overshadow the protection of one. Proper identification cards will continue being one factor in national security. However, our identification card of tomorrow, might be much unique of our identification card of today.
