BREAKING: Senate Tells Buhari To Sack Service Chiefs

The Senate on Tuesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to begin the replacement of service chiefs following the killing of 43 farmers, Igbere TV reports.

President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan said Buhari must immediately restructure the country’s security architecture in order to fight against insurgents and secure lives of citizens.

Lawan said: “I urge the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria to immediately initiate the transitionary process of phasing out the current over-stayed security chiefs and replacing them with new ones with new ideas and solutions;

“I urge the President to take immediate steps to restructure, remodel and revamp the country’s entire security architecture and provide enough state-of-the-art weapons and equipment to effectively combat the belligerent power of the insurgents.”

The senate President also admonished the President to immediately set up a probe pannel into widespread allegations of corruption and leakages within the security structure and put mechanisms in place to foster transparency.

“The President should ensure all resources meant and deployed for security are actually spent on the needs on ground; impress on the Federal Government to aggressively explore multilateral and bilateral options of partnership with the neighboring nations of Chad, Niger and Cameroon towards reviving and strengthening the Multinational Joint Task Force.

“Finally, as a way of proffering long term solution to Nigeria’s existential security challenges, the Federal and States Government must adequately address all immediate and remote causes of insecurity in the nation,” Lawan added.
