Breaking: Sack Security Chiefs Now!—Saraki

By Ikenga Chronicles June 30, 2018

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has called for the immediate sack of incompetent security chiefs in the country.

This is coming at the background of the numerous killings going on in Nigeria, which have seen thousands of Nigerians slaughtered in 2018 alone.

Saraki made this call in Illorin, on Saturday, while visiting communities affected by rainstorm.

According to the Senate President;

“This is not something to be politicised. If somebody is not capable and cannot do what he has to do, let others have the opportunity to do it.

“We have had situations where security officials have told us there is poor coordination. One, A is not talking to B, Be is not talking to A. They don’t attend meetings jointly and things need to be done.

“Let us forget the issue of party, these are lives of people – and let’s remove politics. It is not about who is the Speaker of the House, who is the President of the Senate. It is about Nigeria.”

He bemoaned the fact that the National Assembly had foreseen the security problems and made attempts to convene a security summit, and even meet with some security chiefs who felt that it was unnecessary to work with the National Assembly;

“As you know, the National Assembly under my leadership, many months back, had seen this danger, called for a security summit, we had addressed the issue of security architecture. We had said that there is definitely a failure of the security architecture of the country.

“You are all very aware that some service chiefs decided in their own wisdom that there is no need for them to work with the National Assembly to address these issues.

“There is no society that continues to see the kind of killings here and think that it should be business as usual. It requires drastic action, it requires a collaboration of all agencies and all arms of government for us to be serious.”
