 ‘Retaining service chiefs years after their retirement and appointment of only Northerners is unconstitutional’ – North East Elders tell Buhari

The group of Northern elders known as The Coalition of North East Elders for Peace and Development (CNEPD), have asked president Muhammadu Buhari, to sack Nigeria’s Military Service chiefs saying the continued retention of service chiefs several years after the expiration of their retirement date was not only unconstitutional but could demoralize frontline troops.

 

The group in a statement by its national coordinator, Zana Goni, said the inability of Buhari to announce the removal of service chiefs in his new year message was a sign that the Nigerian leader didn’t acknowledge the insecurity situation in the country.

 

The group also warned that the appointment of almost only Northerners to lead the Nigerian military was morally and constitutionally wrong and may have emboldened criminals and bandits as trying different ethic groups in the country’s security infrastructure will not only bring back the high morale of personnel but also return their zeal and vigour to protect Nigeria.
