Ohanaeze backs National Assembly call for removal of service chiefs
“What was special about the current service chiefs that made them indispensable?
Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, endorsed the decision by the National Assembly for the removing of the current service chiefs.
It stated their endless retention was changing into a nationwide and worldwide shame.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo depicted the reaction of the Senior Special Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina, to the call as unwelcome and disrespect to Nigerians who have been receiving the brunt of the raids and killings on day by day basis.
The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, in a press release on Thursday by Emeka Attamah, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, stated Ohanaeze marveled why the Federal Government has refused to protected the nation from unnecessary tragedy.
The assertion learn partly, “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.”
