Saraki calls for immediate removal of incompetent security chiefs

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has called on President Buhari to
remove the “incapable” security chiefs due to their inability to curb
the spate of killings in different parts of the country.

Saraki made the call today June 30th when he paid a sympathy visit to
communities affected by a rainstorm in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

Speaking during the visit, a visibly angry Saraki said

“This is not something to be politicised. If somebody is not capable
and cannot do what he has to do, let others have the opportunity to do
it. We have had situations where security officials have told us there
is poor coordination. One, A is not talking to B, Be is not talking to
A. They don’t attend meetings jointly and things need to be done. Let us
forget the issue of party, these are lives of people – and let’s remove
politics. It is not about who is the Speaker of the House, who is the
President of the Senate. It is about Nigeria.”

Speaking further, Saraki said

“As you know, the National Assembly under my leadership, many months
back, had seen this danger, called for a security summit, we had
addressed the issue of security architecture. We had said that there is
definitely a failure of the security architecture of the country. You
are all very aware that some service chiefs decided in their own wisdom
that there is no need for them to work with the National Assembly to
address these issues. There is no society that continues to see the kind
of killings here and think that it should be business as usual. It
requires drastic action, it requires a collaboration of all agencies and
all arms of government for us to be serious.”
