The President may be stripped of his exclusive powers on the appointment, removal and elongation of tenures of the service chiefs in the ongoing amendment to the Armed Forces Act 2004 by the House of Representatives.

Instead, it is being proposed that the Armed Forces Council will determine the qualification.

This is being proposed in the legislation titled ‘A Bill for an Act to Amend the Armed Forces Act, Cap. A20, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 to Foster Collaboration between the Armed Forces and Other Security Agencies in the Provision of National Security and Establish the Armed Forces Human Rights Unit to Provide a Reporting Channel for Civilians Whose Human Rights Are Violated by Members of Armed Forces.’

It was one of the eight bills passed for second reading on July 14, 2021, which were recommended by the House’s Special Ad Hoc Committee on National Security chaired by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila.

The bills, which were introduced following the House’s Special Summit on National Security held earlier in May, were also to fill lacunas in the country’s laws on security and address the crisis often caused by the overlapping mandates among the various security-related agencies.

The House, on July 13, 2021, considered and adopted the report from the summit, while Gbajabiamila presented the report to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for prosecution.

Buhari had nominated the present Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Farouk Yahaya, and sought the National Assembly’s confirmation based on Section 18 (1) of the Armed Forces Act.

Yahaya (then a major general), who is a member of Regular Course 37, as army chief.

After lawyers criticised the unilateral nomination of Inspectors-General of Police, the Nigerian Police Council is to nominate and confirm the appointment of a new IGP.

The NPC, which is chaired by the President, comprises the 36 state governors and the chairman of the Police Service Commission.

This is a way to prevent the next southern president from replacing the fulanis that have been appointed to sensitive military positions by buhari's tribalistic government.

The southern reps are either so goddamn stupid or completely compromised.

The fact is that no president will just allow some people or groups to appoint service chiefs for him, if you want to appoint service chiefs contest presidential election and win, there is no two ways about it. So this is just a waste of time

Everything is in shambles in Nigeria. The society as a system is not working

Every sane youth in Nigeria should be thinking towards leaving this hell of a place. The condemned zombies can remain here to suffer. I don't care

Smart man. You get it.
Obviously this bill will not be passed until around 2022/23 just in time to be used against the Southern President to continue their ineptitude & corruption up North.

Southerners backing this are really stupid.

That's a dangerous thing to do. Look beyond this president and act reasonably.

He is the number one security officer for the nation, he should be able to appoint who he feels comfortable with. This has nothing to do with Buhari, think of other future presidents coming in. Don't politicise this critical role.

Noo. Southerners wake up. This must be rejected. Why now?:Their evil and satanic plan is for the incoming southern president so that they won't be paid in their own coin and that the southern president won't be able to sack the nepostistically appointed Fulani service chiefs.. We southerners reject this in its entirety. We must unite and put aside ethnic, religious and political differences.

Not surprised. Anything that would make the next president less powerful would be done by these evil people, after they've already had their turn. They're doing all these so that, should the next president, who would less-likely be a northerner appoint any service chiefs who don't favour them or wouldn't protect bandits or boko aram, they'd just pass votes of no confidence on such service chiefs and remove them from office.

I foresee more of this. E be like say our southern law makers have been charmed. They always don't see beyond their nose.
