Following the increasing spate of killings across the country, Senator President Bukola Saraki and Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State want immediate removal of security chiefs to allow for fresh and innovative ideas on how to protect the nation
Tambuwal spoke while declaring open the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, holding in Sokoto
The governor noted that there was no need retaining security heads that could not find solution to perennial security challenges in the country. He also charged media managers and professionals to rise against increasing rate of disseminating fake news items that had been fueling ethnic and religious violence in the country
On his part, Saraki said the killings in the country were abnormal because they involve loss of human lives. Saraki, who fielded questions from journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, yesterday, particularly blamed security chiefs for working at cross purposes and for their refusal to partner with the National Assembly, insisting that incompetent hands among them must be ready to give way in order to end the current security challenges in the affected areas. He added that the National Assembly would not shy away from its responsibility, saying that incessant killings must stop.
