A support group of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately relieve the nation’s service chiefs of their jobs.
The group said the sack of the service chiefs had become imperative to pave way for the injection of fresh ideas into the country’s security architecture.
Dr. Jubrin Bichi, the National Convener of the group, known as APC Support Core, was reacting to a statement by the National Democratic Front (NDF), alleging a sinister motive to destabilize the government through an abrupt removal of the heads of security agencies.
Bichi, in a press statement on Sunday, insisted that allowing the service chiefs to continue in their positions given the security problems confronting the country would not be in the best interest of anyone.
He commended the service chiefs for their contributions in the fight against insecurity in the country but insisted that fresh hands were needed to tackle the problems.
The statement reads, “Ordinarily, we would not have responded to this unsubstantiated and inciting statement by this faceless group under the aegis of National Democratic Front, NDF, but as a group very loyal to our respected party, the APC and having read the statement purportedly attributed to this faceless group, we feel duty-bound to respond so as not to mislead our president and our party that have been saddled with the mandate by Nigerians to pilot the affairs of the country for the next four years.
“We believe strongly that the service chiefs have tried their best to restore security in the country since their assumption of office but given the dimension in which insecurity has assumed in the country,we feel that its high time fresh ideas and hands were injected.”
