BOSS Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation, SGF, on Tuesday, February 18, chided those calling for the sack of services chiefs, declaring that President Muhammadu Buhari will not remove them now.
Mustapha explained that there are processes that must be followed to sack them, adding: “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 destabilising the nation,” he told reporters in Abuja, after a book presentation titled CAN, Religion, Politics, and Power in Nigeria by Samuel Salifu, former general secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
According to him, what the government needs at this moment is for everybody to be on the same page, fight the battle to secure the nation, protect lives and property and ensure that every Nigerian has the opportunity to live a prosperous life. I think that should be our main focus”.
“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,” he said.
