Nigerians react as Buhari finally sacks service chiefs

Nigerians have reacted to the sack of service Chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.

According to many commentators on social media, the move was long overdue as many Nigerians have, for long, called for the replacement of the crop of service chiefs following the rise in insecurity in the country.

Nigerians react as Buhari finally sacks service chiefs

Speaking on Tuesday, the President on his verified Twitter account said:

“I have accepted the immediate resignation of the Service Chiefs, and their retirement from service… I have also appointed new Service Chiefs, to replace the retired officers.”

Nigerians meet your new service chiefs: Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff Major-General I. Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff Rear Admiral A.Z Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao, Chief of Air Staff.

Reno omokri said:

“I commend General @MBuhari for listening to voices of reason and sacking his clueless and nepotistic service chiefs. Good riddance to bad rubbish. It is disappointing that he maintained his practice of appointing largely Northern Muslim males, but half bread is better than none.”

The sacked Service Chiefs only served themselves and their pockets and can at best be described as “Disservice Chiefs” under whom Nigeria became completely insecured.

Finally, Buhari has fired and replaced the Service Chiefs who were appointed in 2015. We are in a mess and insecurity is a major issue. I hope the new Service Chiefs will deliver.
