Sack service chiefs, former DSS boss tells Buhari
Former director-general of the Department of State Security Mike Ejiofor has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to change the service chiefs in the face of rising insecurity.
“I expect that Mr President should take Nigerians by surprise, change the service chiefs; and Nigerians, their attitude to security agencies, should change too,” he said on Channels Television on Monday.
“I think by the change of tactics, equipment, attitude, service chiefs, and approaches, we’d make some progress, I believe very strongly.”
But presidential spokesman Garba Shehu had earlier described the clamour for the sack of the service chiefs as “out of place.”
“The clamour for the sack is out of place considering that the president is not subject to the opinion of opposition political party which has clamoured for this all the time. It is entirely his own determination; he decides who he keeps as his service chiefs and for how long,” he said on Arise TV.
