The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari cannot change or appoint new service chiefs right about now.
He revealed this during a recent interview, saying it cannot happen because Nigeria was in a complete state of war.
According to him, Buhari cannot help but retain the service chiefs since things are peaceful in the North-east and in the entire country.
He added that he believes PMB is doing the right thing, and when the time is right, they will be changed.
His words, “We are in a war. Definitely, we are in a war. We are fighting the insurgents in the North-east and in the North-west.
The military is so much involved and is being deployed in so many zones of the federation. The security situation is such that the military is involved almost in all parts of the country. So, we are in a war.
“The military is so involved in so many security challenges. In fact, in almost the 36 states, in fact, this is a pointer that we are at war.
“Coincidentally, the president is a retired army general and he knows this war situation better than most Nigerians; and he knows when to change his army commanders and when not to do that. As commander-in-chief, he understands this war situation better than we the civilians.
“I’m sure he is doing the right thing as the commander-in-chief and when he finds it necessary, he will effect changes.”
“I don’t think that changing the service chiefs will be the solution to the insecurity in the country. I don’t think that this war is not won because the service chiefs are still there and have not been changed.”
