Sack of Service Chiefs: Ohanaeze backs NASS

The National Assembly (NASS) has gotten the support of the Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo for the sack of service chiefs.

Ohanaeze said on Thursday that the continued retention of the Service Chiefs was becoming a national and international embarrassment to Nigeria.

It described the response of the Presidency to the call for their removal as unacceptable and an insult on Nigerians who were receiving the brunt of the attacks and killings on daily basis.

President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Emeka Attamah, said Ohanaeze wondered why the Federal Government has refused to save the nation from unending calamity.

Said the statement, “What was special about the current service chiefs that made them indispensable? It is unconstitutional to keep a worker in service long after he is due for retirement.

“It was not surprising that there are overt dissensions in the military with soldiers resigning in their numbers due to dissatisfaction and disaffection coupled with the alleged corruption in the force.

“The situation now suggests that there is more to their retention than the interest of the country which the Federal government needs to explain to Nigerians.”
