The Senate has revealed that it will convince President Muhammadu Buhari, to sack the service chiefs, comprising the Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Chief of Army Staff and Chief of Naval Staff.

The decision came after a motion moved during a plenary session by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume.

He stated that the recent attacks on soldiers in Gamboa-Maiduguri Road in Borno State and Katsina states are a worrying sign for the security of the nation.

He expressed that if the trend continues, it will have serious implications on the fight against insurgency, banditry and other forms of criminality in the country.

In addition to Ndume’s stand, the Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Customs, Senator Francis Fadahunsi, demanded that service chiefs step aside.

The Senate spokesperson, Senator Ajibola Basiru, in a recent interview expressed that the red chamber would continue to persuade the President to act on its resolution


  1. If these service chiefs are not doing their work fine as supposed, they should all step aside nah for other persons to try
    The senate should persuade the president faster enough to sack them
    We will not all fold our hands and watch our dear nation slip into anarchy and lawlessness

  2. Changing of these service chiefs is long over due because these killings everywhere is too much. I hope the president would listen to you and do the needful.

  3. I think all these security service chiefs have extorted their tactics because there’s no improvement, just of recent as you reported to us that one honourable was killed and his family was kidnapped that means ordinary citizens didn’t save to move from one place to another. We need new ideas in fighting these insecurities of a thing.
