I Won’t Tolerate Oil Theft, Bola Tinubu Tells Security Chiefs At Maiden Meeting

The issue of oil theft has been a major concern in Nigeria, and many have called for the government to take more decisive action to curb the menace. At a recent meeting, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, spoke out against the crime and vowed to take measures to stop it. In this article, we will explore his statements and the actions he plans to take.

Kicks against inter-agency rivalry

One of the biggest issues that Tinubu highlighted was the inter-agency rivalry that often hampers efforts to tackle oil theft. He noted that different security agencies often work at cross-purposes and fail to coordinate their efforts effectively. This, he said, must stop if we are to make progress in the fight against oil theft.

Tinubu emphasized the need for cooperation and coordination among security agencies, stating that “we need to work together and share intelligence if we want to break the back of oil theft in this country.” He also called for an end to the blame game between agencies, adding that “we cannot afford to keep pointing fingers at each other while the thieves run amok.”

Tinubu Vows to Crack Down on Oil Theft

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu made it clear that he would not tolerate oil theft in any form. He asserted that the crime is not only illegal but also detrimental to the economy, as it deprives the nation of much-needed revenue. Tinubu stated that he would take decisive action to crack down on oil theft and ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

“We must send a clear message to these thieves that their days are numbered,” Tinubu said. “We will not rest until we have put an end to this criminal enterprise and recovered all the resources that have been stolen from our nation.”

Security Chiefs Meet with Tinubu to Discuss Measures

As part of his efforts to tackle oil theft, Tinubu met with top security chiefs to discuss measures that could be taken to curb the menace. The meeting was attended by the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the Department of State Services, and other top security officials.

During the meeting, Tinubu emphasized the need for greater collaboration between security agencies and the use of advanced technology in tracking down oil thieves. He also called for stiffer penalties for those found guilty of oil theft.

The security chiefs, in turn, assured Tinubu of their commitment to the fight against oil theft and pledged to work together to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.


President Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s stance on oil theft is a welcome development in the fight against the crime. His call for greater collaboration and coordination among security agencies is a step in the right direction, and his vow to crack down on oil theft sends a strong message to the perpetrators.

It is now up to the security agencies to follow through on Tinubu’s directives and take decisive action against those who engage in oil theft. With greater cooperation and the use of advanced technology, we can hope to see a reduction in the incidence of oil theft in Nigeria.
