A former Liaison Officer of ex-President Shehu Shagari, Tanko Yakasai, has thrown his weight behind calls demanding the sack of current Service Chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Yakasai, who is a founding member of Arewa Consultative Forum, said the current Service Chiefs have run out of ideas on how to resolve the current issue of insecurity in the country.

Speaking with Vanguard, Yakasai said Buhari needs to change tactics and seek fresh hands that would help in bringing an end to issues of insecurity in the country.

According to Yakasai, the current Service Chiefs are under-qualified to handle the country’s security challenges.

He said: “President Buhari was elected by Nigerians and he should listen to them by dropping the service chiefs who have since reached retirement age in the military and appoint new ones with fresh ideas to do the job for which we elected him to do.

“The president’s idea about insecurity has proved inadequate to deal with the threat to our lives and property and he should urgently change tactics and personnel in order to win the war against rising threats to the lives of Nigerians.

“From what we have seen so far, he has not been able to solve the security problems staring the nation in the face and should seek new hands to help him do the job.”

Yakasai’s comment is coming at a time the senate passed vote of no-confidence on the military, police and other security architecture in the country.

Its really silly for the two  heads of NASS and others to keep piling pressure for President Buhari to change his service chiefs. 

It appears they don't know him very well . President Muhammadu Buhari is a man that loves loyalty.  And he is getting it 100%. 
He is a man who don't like strange people occupying his space and people he does not know. 
That informs why almost all his service chiefs are from his ethnic group and people he knows personally and why he surrounded himself with his cousins , uncles ,nieces,   nephews ,in-laws, friends , etc in Aso rock. 
President Muhammadu Buhari is a man who prefer the  friendship he gets from you and not really your competency level and that is exactly what he took to governance. Ngrealnews
