Boko Haram: Why Buhari Is Keeping Service Chiefs — Garba Shehu
Garba Shehu

Garba Shehu, a presidential spokesman, says the nation’s service chiefs will remain in office as far as President Muhammadu Buhari is satisfied with their performance.

He stated that the prerogative to appoint or sack Nigeria’s service chiefs solely rests on the shoulders of President Buhari.

He made this known while speaking in an interview with Arise TV on Tuesday morning.

He said, “I am not aware that the tenure of service chiefs is subjected to any law or regulation that is clearly stated. They serve at the pleasure of the president and (if) the president is satisfied with their performance, he keeps them. The buck stops on his table —with due respect to the feelings of Nigerians.

“The clamour for the sack is out of place considering that the president is not subject to the opinion of opposition political party which has clamoured for this all the time. It is entirely his own determination; he decides who he keeps as his service chiefs and for how long.”

This remark is coming at a time when there have been increased calls for the sacking of the service chiefs following the continued activities of insurgents in the country.
