A tense but civil interaction between the Chair of the Special Parliamentary Committee on the National General Elections, East Sepik Governor Allan Bird and National Intelligence Organization (NIO) Director General Terence Frawley, has led to the NIO boss calling for resilience when intelligence regarding matters of National Security, are presented to the National Security Council.
Director General Frawley made the call when queried about the scale of response from the National Security Council when the NIO tables reports.
“A lot of our reports go to our heads, our leaders, and our agencies. We discuss all these matters but when we walk out the door, it’s a different matter.”
Frawley stated that the leaders need a resilient approach to things pertaining to National Security, and with the way things have been going, especially with the last election being very troublesome.
This has become a serious concern. On a scale of 1-10, the National Intelligence Organization has given their rating of 3 out of 10 as to how the top brass responds to threat assessments made by the NIO.
