Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi says he disagrees with the call for the sack of the service chiefs by the National assembly.

In a statement he made during the ground-breaking ceremony of Nigeria Army Reference Hospital, Abakaliki, he recommended that the funding and logistics of the Nigerian Army should be increased rather than calling for the termination of their appointments.

He further praised the Army for their gallantry and dedication towards securing the Territory of the Nation as he noted that the assignment of the Army was not an easy task and as such, needed the full cooperation of Citizens at all levels to succeed.

“I have to disagree with members of the National Assembly over their recent call for the sack of the nation’s Service Chiefs. One thing I have realized in this country is that we like change too much. We want everybody to test every seat. That is not what we need at this crucial time, the country is facing security challenges, he said

“The Chief of Army Staff is a very big committed person, and very friendly with the civil society. So, what these people need is cooperation, information. It is difficult for people to do everything without information. This is very important and at this stage of the change.

“Whoever that is coming is going to be amendable. But I believe strongly that the decision taken by the Service Chiefs are not taken by themselves alone. So, I will be suggesting to Mr. President not to consider removing the Service Chiefs.

“But, we should increase their logistics, we should increase the funding of their armed forces. We should increase the programs that will bring information to the security agencies.

“Let me thank the President for finding Ebonyi fit to site this project. Ebonyi is very lucky with the Army. We will continue to partner you we expect him, the Chief of Army Staff to Commission the internal roads we did for the Army

“The new GOC is more like a brother. We want to thank you and appreciate you for being an Ebonyi man. Thanks for choosing this State for the citing of this project.”


  1. That’s your own opinion. Firstly they have exceeded their tenure before the renewal, once you didn’t give another person to display their talents, how would you detect their skills. They have tried all their tactics and no result, they should go and allow another commander to take over. Enough of these killings here and there.

  2. I hear him
    All these are political talks but one thing I know is that they should all stop playing with people’s lives
