Senators and members of the House of Representatives have called for the replacement of Service Chiefs, whom they said are no longer proficient of delivering on their mandate. They asked them to either
resign or be fired by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Lawmakers noted that the recent upsurge in security-related challenges
and the devastating loss of lives   and properties across the country was enough ground for them to ask for the Service Chiefs’ exit. Both Chambers at Wednesday’s plenary devoted to the debate on the
rising insurgency and other forms of criminality.

It would be recalled that on Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari said
that he was “taken aback” by the resurge in banditry and promised harder actions against criminals.

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan condemned the security architecture of
the country, describing it as ineffective and fast deteriorating.

Also, in the House of Representatives, members called on the Service
Chiefs to quit immediately. They accused the security chiefs of using the same schemes that failed to yield results, and called on the President to sack them if they failed to voluntarily resign their positions.
