The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to sack all service chiefs in order to curtail insecurity in Nigeria.
The services chiefs in Nigeria comprise Chief of Defense Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen. T.Y. Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral IE Ibas; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
Afriupdate news had reported that many Nigerians have lost their lives in Zamfara state, northwest Nigeria.
Several attacks have also been reported in neigbouring Sokoto, Kaduna as well as Benue.
And reacting to the current spate of killings in the country, the party’s National Chairman, Sani Yabagi, argued that no one would want to retain a manager of a company under whom the firm is recording low turnover.

“On the issue of insecurity, I think we know why it has become so embarrassing,” he said at a presser in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
“We cannot be doing the same thing and be expecting different results. You cannot retain the same service chiefs in the same positions and expect a different result.
“These men have done it many times and nothing has worked. If it were to be your private company where you recorded a low turnover, will you continue with the same manager?
“This President should know more than all of us that to boost the morale of the force is something that is important.
“They are profiteering with people’s blood. You won’t believe the amount of money going into security.
“If insecurity is man-made, then we are the ones fueling it. The President knows what to do as a former Head of State.”
President Buhari had mandated the nation’s security agencies to deal ruthlessly with ‘bandits’ attacking several areas in the country.
But lawmakers in the House of Representatives want more from Nigeria’s commander in chief.
