On Tuesday, Nigeria’s Secretary to the Government of the Federation(SGF), Boss Gidahyelda Mustapha responded to Nigerians calls for the sacking of all Service Chiefs over the increasing challenges of terrorism and other security issues in the country.
Boss Mustapha criticized the agitations and declared that President Buhari’s administration will not sack any Service Chiefs.
He said there are processes that must be followed to effect their sack.
Mustapha said, “We are in a very difficult time now. We need everybody to be on board. We need synergy within intelligent community, within the military formations that will help fight this war.
“We are in a very difficult situation and when we begin to create cracks and divisions, who will be the beneficiaries?
“The adversaries are the ones that are going to exploit those deficiencies and further the cause of destabilising the nation.” Mustapha noted.
He made these comments in Abuja after a book presentation titled CAN, Religion, politics and power in Nigeria by former General Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) Engr Samuel Salifu.
Boss Mustapha noted that, “At this moment, what we need is for everybody to be on the same page, fight the battle of securing the nation for protecting lives and property and ensuring that every Nigerian has the opportunity to live a prosperous live. I think that should be our main focus”.
He concluded by saying that, Nigerians should not expect that the President will just sack Service Chiefs like that without following due processes, that due processes are needed in government dealings.
