The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has declared his support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s unwillingness to sack the service chiefs from the Nigerian Army to the Airforce for their failures to contain the Boko Haram terrorists in the north east and the bandits in the northwest as widely demanded by Nigerians, including the National Assembly.
SGF Boss Mustapha at an event in Abuja, said that Nigeria is in a difficult situation at the moment which he said requires a synergy within the intelligence community to address the insecurity crisis in the country.
Boss Mustapha declared that public servants are not just sacked ordinary, noting that there are procedures, saying that there are processes to be followed and they will be followed at the right time.
Boss Mustapha had declared: “We are in a very difficult time now. We need everybody to be on board. We need synergy within the intelligence community, within the military formations that will help fight this war.
“We are in a very difficult situation and when we begin to create cracks and divisions, who will be the beneficiaries? The adversaries are the ones that are going to exploit those deficiencies and further the cause of destabilizing the nation.
“You don’t sack people like that. There are processes and I believe that at the opportune time, those processes will be followed. You don’t just wake up and say, sack people, it doesn’t happen like that.”
