The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has re-launched the War Against Indiscipline, WAI, Brigade.

The announcement was made by Garba Abari, the Director-General, National Orientation Agency, NOA, during the National and State Commanders meeting of the Community Support Brigade, CSB, also known as WAI.

Speaking at the meeting, Abari said: “It’s great pleasure that I have the opportunity to meet with the leadership of WAI, for the first time since my assumption of office about two months ago.

This meeting is meant to discuss the repositioning of the WAI Brigade in the current dispensation of change.

“I’m not only delighted with this gathering, but excited with you all for keeping faith and working tirelessly to contribute your quota to nation building as volunteers who are not being paid for over 3 decades. So, I salute your patriotic efforts, indeed, Nigeria salutes your patriotism,” he said.

The NOA DG, stated that the role of the WAI Brigade in civil intelligence gathering cannot be over emphasized, giving the level of insecurity, violence, kidnapping and other forms of social vices in the country.

He recalled that the WAI Brigade was a brain-child of President Buhari, who as Military Head of State in 1983 established the Brigade, to instill discipline among Nigerians, as well as fight endemic corruption.

“The ills and woes that bedeviled the nation at that time are still very much with us today,” he said.

The NOA boss disclosed that the intention of the present administration to re-launch the Brigade was for better performance, urging members contribute their quota to make the change mantra of the Buhari administration a reality.

Whenever and wherever you see something, you must say something to save our nation from decline,” Abari urged.
