PDP Urges Probe Of Ex-Service Chiefs
By Williams Anuku, Abuja
Following the appointment of new Service Chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the probe of their predecessors who it said, did damage to the security of the country.
In a statement issued in reaction to the change of the military brass signed by Kola Ologbondiyan,National Publicity Secretary, the main opposition party described the appointment of new service chiefs as rather late in the day, “when much harm had already been done to our national security.”
The party said that the belated replacement of the outgoing wearied service chiefs, “after much damage to our nation, shows President Buhari as a leader who has always refused to heed to wise counsel by well-meaning Nigerians but continually leads our country to a dire strait.”
“The PDP demands an immediate inquest into the tenure of the last service chiefs to unravel the circumstances behind the security lapses and compromises as well as accusation of involvement in the alleged looting of funds meant for the equipping and welfare of our troops in the front.
“Our party insists that such must be the sure step towards sanitizing the security architecture as well as lifting the morale of those in the front lines risking their lives for the security of our nation,” it added
