His word: “So, the president was briefed, the president is quite happy that there’s been tremendous success, especially with the advent of the new service chiefs and Inspector General of Police.

 “And he’s also made it very, very clear that he’s not ready to exit government as a failure. He is not going to tolerate that. He has made changes and he is ready to make further changes if he is not satisfied. He is completely determined to ensure that there’s a turnaround in the fortunes in the theatre of operations.”
