Resign Honourably, Gov Tambuwal Tells Service Chiefs Over Insecurity



Aminu Tambuwal

Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto State Governor, has asked service chiefs to honourably resign from their office due to the worsening security situation in the country.

While the calls for the sack of the service chiefs have continued to gather steam, the President, Muhammadu Buhari has remained in keeping them in office.

Speaking at a webinar organised by the Emmanuel Chapel, themed, “Rebuilding our lives: A case for hope and determination to succeed,” Tambuwal insisted that either the President sacks the service chiefs or they do so themselves.

He added that it was ironic that security agencies were short of personnel even when millions of Nigerians ready to serve were roaming the streets.

“As far back as June 2018, I made my opinion known about our service chiefs and the Inspector-General and I called for the rejigging of the security architecture,” said the Governor.

“There is definitely a need for the service chiefs to go, either they are asked to go by the President who appointed them or by themselves being honourable enough to say we have done our best. It’s clear; even the Commander-in-Chief has said it not once or twice that their best is not enough. 

“They should be honourable enough to say, Mr President, we have done our best, our best is not enough, you have adjudged our best not to be good enough, we take a bow, appoint a new set of people that would take charge.

“No one of us is indispensable. No single individual has the monopoly of knowledge of how to address the challenges we are facing as a nation, more so with insecurity, especially with the fact that they have been tested over the years. These are the same set of people and we have seen the outcome of their efforts.”
