Why Buhari Sacked Buratai, Other Service Chiefs - Daily Trust by dre11(m): 5:12pm On Jan 27
Buhari had on December 18, last year in Katsina State, dropped the hint that the former service chiefs would be fired this year....

By Ismail Mudashir

After months of intense calls by the National Assembly, socio-cultural organisations and pressure groups, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday bowed to pressure on the country’s service chiefs.

Sources around the Presidency and the security chiefs said Buhari bowed to pressure following the failure of the service chiefs to ‘properly tackle’ the rising banditry, insurgency and other security challenges bedevilling the country.

One of the sources said since the beginning of this year, the former service chiefs have been expecting their sack considering “widespread disaffection.”

The source close to one of the former service chiefs, who does not want to be named, said: “It is not resignation, they were sacked.

“They have been expecting their sack since the beginning of this year, but nobody told them that this is when it will happen but it is like every day you wake up thinking anything can happen.”

Buhari had on December 18, last year in Katsina State, dropped the hint that the former service chiefs would be fired this year.

“On the issue of insecurity, I am extremely worried about it and I hope next year it will be different.

“Those among the law enforcement agencies that would remain in charge would be extremely busy,” Buhari said shortly before addressing students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, who were kidnapped and rescued.

The source said the use of the word “resignation” by the Presidency in describing the exit of the service chiefs was for a reason only known to them.

“Ordinarily, if any of the service chiefs resign on his volition, you will suspect foul play including a coup.

“You are supposed to be suspicious of him because they are the pillars of the country’s security.

“When the pressure was high on the president to sack the service chiefs, I had a discussion with one of them and he told me ‘you know we cannot resign, if we do, it could be interpreted for something else.’

“Nigerians are expecting so much from the new service chiefs because the general opinion is that their predecessors have run out of ideas, hence they could not address the rising insecurity in the country,” he said.

He urged the new service chiefs to demonstrate their capabilities by chasing the bandits, insurgents and other criminals terrorising the country.

“We have the conviction that the Nigerian Armed Forces have the capacity to decimate these terrorists groups but they are just playing politics with it.

“The new service chiefs should strive to get the necessary equipment and necessary attention should be given to the welfare of the officers and men in the war fronts. Soldiers in war fronts are complaining about poor welfare.

“Soldiers should not be in war fronts for five years, two years is enough,” he said.

Another source faulted the claims that the service chiefs resigned, saying “I’m surprised that they are saying they resigned. The issue of resignation should not be part of it.

“They were relieved of their appointment and you know they were there at the pleasure of the president.”

He urged the new Chief of Defence Staff, Major-General Leo Irabor, to take charge of the security of the country.

“The former chief of defence staff was not in charge. General Irabor should be on top of the situation and take over. He should take charge; he is the chief of defence staff.

“To tackle the security challenges in the country, there must be proper coordination of the armed forces. This was lacking,” he said, pleading not to be named.

Bow to which pressure? When many Nigerians have been loosing their lives to the lacklustreness of the out gone service chiefs?

Did Buhari bowed to pressure in immediately shuffling the security architecture of Aso Rock when a shot was mistakenly fired during the DSS/Police fracas? It is just plain wickedness.

He didn't need to bow to any phantom pressure. Those were incompetent security chiefs of the so called giant of Africa.

For years they ridiculed the sovereignty of the nation by only playing into their own pockets

Enriching themselves with billions of Naira mapped out for the decimation of insurgence.

He changed them cos the agreed time has come.

The free money is turn by turn

Pressure ko pleasure ni.

Nonsense and Nigeria

We are delighted with this news.
We have always believed that renewed invigoration was needed for the leadership of the armed forces.

No doubt, Nigerians all over the world, are proud and grateful of this appointment and we are here to witness a completely secured Nigeria that will serve as legacy for the generations to come.

All of us @MANNABBQGRILLS would also like to congratulate the newly appointed Service Chiefs and wish them a successful tenure.
We have looked at their resumes, and we can say that they are stellar and deserving of the roles they are going to be playing.
They are experienced in the battlefield terrain, and we are sure that these Service Chiefs will deal the final blow that ends terrorism in Nigeria.
Nigerians expect victory, and nothing less.

We call on all Nigerians to exercise patience with the newly appointed security chiefs, and to offer them our full support in the firm belief that the President must have taken into consideration their long years of experience in arriving at the decision to saddle them with the responsibilities of prosecuting our nation’s security policies during one of the most challenging times in our history.

Our prayers are with the newly appointed service chiefs and, indeed, with all gallant officers who have continued to work day and night in a bid to ensure we all live peacefully in a well secured country.
May your efforts and those of all our fallen heroes never be in vain, and may Nigeria, during our lifetime, live up to its promise of a peaceful and prosperous nation.

Thank you.

From all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS.

GOD BLESS NIGERIA
NIGERIA WILL SUCCEED.

Those guys even lost interest in the job after several extensions. Imagine playing football for 90 minutes, then extra time of 30 minutes, then another extra time of 60 minutes, both players and fans will lose interest in the game
