Sowore Reveal Why Tinubu Gave Sacked Service Chiefs Luxurious Retirement Package by Busy76: 10:10am On Jul 02, 2023
President Bola Tinubu has been accused of approving a luxurious retirement package for the recently sacked Service Chiefs to avoid an overthrow of his government.

Naija News gathered that the accusation was levelled against the President by the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general election, Omoyele Sowore.


According to the AAC flag bearer, Tinubu sacrificed the interest of Nigerians to give the sacked Service Chiefs mouthwatering benefits in other to consolidate his government.

Recall that the President had last month approved the immediate removal of all the previous Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police, and the Comptroller-General of Customs from service and appointed their replacements with immediate effect in June.

Sowore’s reaction follows a report by The Punch on Saturday that the Chief of Defence Staff and the service chiefs got bulletproof Sport Utility Vehicles, personal aides, guards and other perks of office, including generous allowance for medical treatment abroad, as retirement benefits.


It was learnt that the former Service Chiefs that would be benefiting from the package include the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao.

Taking to his Twitter handle to react to the development, Sowore asserted that the rumours to take over Tinubu’s government while he travelled to France last month could have been true with the kind of retirement packages he has offered the sacked Service Chiefs.

The AAC flag bearer noted that all Tinubu has done since his inauguration as President were in the favour of his people, all in the interest of consolidating his power.

Sowore wrote “I think the rumour of their (military) plan to take out @officialABAT before his return from France might be true after all. So far, the interests of ordinary Nigerians have been sacrificed to get Tinubu’s power consolidated.


“To the World Bank/IMF, he removed fuel subsidy and commenced defunding public education, to make “foreign investors” and currency speculators happy, he floated the naira, to please his political friends he raided the offices of the @officialEFCC and carted away sensitive criminal investigations materials related to and of PEPs, and to keep the military boys happy, he gave them mouthwatering never-heard-before retirement benefits. #Revolutionnow.”

Was he the one that approved an existing retirement benefits?
This is their entitlement no matter how evil it is, a democratic government must pass through a process to cut it down.

We need Common sense to understand somethings.

Tinubu is running Nigeria street using the Mafia law of pleasing your foes with money and gift to avoid crossfire with them. However, Obi would do same with the military because our military aren't loyal to Nigerians but their greed belle.

The bottom line is he's far better than Atiku and Obi.

Wrong! I still believe in him. But one thing is constant, our politicians are same with the way they spend our money recklessly, but some have a working mind than others.

Sometimes Sowore sounds stupid.

Those who overthrow governments are not retired service chiefs but serving officers, and sometimes even junior officers

As it was said... tinubu govt is for yoruba people.. we are enjoying than the other tribes... if tomatoes is cost where u are we are buying cheap.. if fuel cost wher u are we dey buy cheap... the way its going many people will regret supporting this man as a selected president... why give retired officers bullet proof cars and other incentives when we have majority of the citizens ravishing in poverty. This man needs to rethink because they will declare him worse than buhari

Sowore with Bitcoin votes should shut up. It is already in their HTMAS where they enjoy pecks of office and also all the generals retiring with them also will enjoy some pecks

Sowore get it clear and direct, the Nigerian citizens have alligned themselves with Democracy!!!

Sometimes, Sowore reasons like an illiterate. Anybody who thinks a coup can succeed in today's Nigeria (especially when a southerner is the president), needs to have his head examined.

And BTW, it was not Tinubu that determines of retired military chiefs' benefits; it's within the purview of the military administrators themselves, and didn't begin today. Somebody only got hold of the document and leaked it to the press.

What about his active supporters, let him find way and settle the in luxury style. Majority of them (if not all) have started developing leg pain from too much standing.

Sowore is just a noise maker. But he claimed tinubu going for medical treatment before he lies were burst. I believe Tinubu is doing that to earn the trust of the Nigerian military. He knows that most of the junior officers don't like the majority of the Generals. This will give our military new hope for what they her. Time will tell

This man is just a noisy fellow. Whatever and everything the service chiefs got were the usual retirement package that has been long standing tradition and nothing new.

People should just be quite
