Ndudi Elumelu, the Minority leader in the House of Representatives, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack his service chiefs, following the attack on the convoy of Borno state Governor, Babagana Zulum.
Elumelu, in a statement he issued to the press on Friday, said the service chiefs could not handle the security situation in the country and need to go.
He said: “The worsening security situation in the country under the current Service Chiefs has reached an unbearable state to the extent that insurgents have the temerity to attack the convoy of a state governor.
“This is more so with the insistence by Governor Zulum of compromise of the security system in the area, allegedly creating an opening to the attack; a position that validates the call for immediate reorganizing of the nation’s security architecture.
“We the opposition lawmakers hereby in the strongest terms restate the call to President Muhammadu Buhari to honor the resolution of the National Assembly and immediately remove the Service Chiefs and bring in new hands to effectively confront the security challenges confronting our nation.”
