The apex pan-Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, has urged President Buhari to sack the service chiefs just has he sacked the APC NWC.
President Buhari last week oversaw the sack of the National Working Committee NWC of All Progressives Congress (APC) and this was immediately implemented at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting which took place in the statehouse Abuja.
Consequently, Afenifere has urged the president to repeat the act and sanitise the security architecture of the country.
Decrying the escalating cases of kidnapping, banditry, and acts of terrorism by Boko Haram insurgents, Fulani herdsmen and other groups in the country, Afenifere, speaking through its spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, wondered why the president continued to allow the service chiefs remain in office.
“It is clear that we have lost the war against Boko Haram insurgents even though the Federal Government has made so much propaganda about their exploits against Boko Haram. On a daily basis, it is becoming clearer that Boko Haram is on top of us.
We need to get back to the drawing board, to devise strategies to contain these criminals; otherwise, Nigeria may go under with these insurgents.” the statement read
Afenifere said the president must go beyond scolding the security chiefs and relieve them of their duties in the interest of the nation.
