President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised by a former Director-General of the Department of State Security, Mike Ejiofor, to change the service chiefs.
The former DSS boss stated this while speaking on Channels Television on Monday.
Ejiofor in his statement noted that changing the service chiefs, tactics, equipment and approaches would lead to progress in the fight against insecurity.
He said, “I expect that Mr President should take Nigerians by surprise, change the service chiefs; and Nigerians, their attitude to security agencies, should change too.”
“I think by the change of tactics, equipment, attitude, service chiefs, and approaches, we’d make some progress, I believe very strongly.”
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has denied media reports that it had apologised to President Muhammadu Buhari for inviting him to address the lawmakers on the security challenges facing the country.
A report in The Nation had said that the Green Chambers shelved any immediate or future plans of inviting Buhari to come and explain to lawmakers the rising insecurity in the nation.
