PDP asks Buhari to rejig Nigeria’s security apparatchik by sacking Service Chiefs, stem insecurity

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately rejig Nigeria’s security `apparatchik’ as part of the ways to stem the insecurity in the country.

Specifically, PDP said that the {resident should replace the Chief of Defence Staff and the Service Chiefs “with fresh hands to effectively confront the security challenges facing our nation.”

The party condemned Friday’s fresh attacks on the motorcade of Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, by Boko Haram Terrorists in which 17 security personnel and 13 civilians died.

In a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said that the repeated attacks on the Governor as well as the rising wave of terrorist attacks, reinforced apprehensions of security compromises and lapses in the country.

According to Ologbondiyan, “this is particularly with Gov. Zulum’s insistence that the security architecture in the North East axis is being compromised. Our party is alarmed by the frightening situation where insurgents now have the temerity of repeated attacks on the armed convoy of a State Governor.

“This highlights the nightmare being witnessed by ordinary compatriots, as soft targets, in various troubled areas across our dear nation. The PDP restates our call to President Muhammadu Buhari to heed the call by well-meaning Nigerians, including the two chambers of the National Assembly, to immediately rejig the nation’s security apparatchik. Mr president should rejig the nation’s security apparatchik by replacing his service chiefs with fresh hands to effectively confront the security challenges facing our nation.”

Ologbondiyan commiserated with Zulum as well as the families of the victims of these incessant attacks and urged the governor not to be deterred.

“The PDP also salutes the gallantry of our troops fighting in the fronts in spite of the odds and urged Nigerians to remain prayerful and alert in this trying time,” he said.
