Mike Ejiofor, the former director of the Department of State Service (DSS) has lent his voice to the loud call for the sack of service chiefs.
Ejiofor on Monday, December 28, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to surprise Nigerians and quickly do away with the leaders of Nigeria's armed forces.
During an interview with Channels TV, the former DSS boss said:
“I expect that Mr President should take Nigerians by surprise, change the service chiefs. The attitude of Nigerians to security agencies should also change.
“We are expecting some equipment coming into the country. I think with these – change of tactics, change of equipment, change of attitude, change of service chief, change of approaches general…with all these we will make some progress."
Meanwhile, to actualise victory in the anti-terrorism battle, the governor of Nasarawa, Abdullahi Sule, had called on President Buhari to solicit the help of the Chadian army.
During an interview on Sunday, December 27, Governor Sule revealed that the participation of the foreign soldiers in the battle against insurgents had been successful.
He, therefore, stated that it time for the federal government to get their help so as to end terrorism once and for all in the country.
The governor said that this is an interesting issue that can get the attention of President Buhari. He said:
“If you want to get Mr President’s attention, talk about security. This is a man who is very concerned about the security of the country but he is also not the type that will come out and talk so much on what he is doing.
"I don’t talk for Mr President but this is based on what I know about him; Mr President takes security with urgency.”
