The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded an immediate probe into the tenure of the former service chiefs to unravel the circumstances behind the security lapses and compromises in the country during their tenure.
The PDP is also demanding a probe into an accusation of their involvement in the alleged looting of funds meant for the equipping and welfare of troops in the frontlines.
“The PDP demands an immediate inquest into the tenure of the last service chiefs to unravel the circumstances behind the security lapses and compromises as well as accusation of involvement in the alleged looting of funds meant for the equipping and welfare of our troops in the front,” a statement signed on Tuesday by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan said.
“Our party insists that such must be the sure step towards sanitizing the security architecture as well as lifting the morale of those in the front lines risking their lives for the security of our nation”.
The party’s comments come hours after President Muhamadu Buhari appointed new service chiefs, following the resignation of the former ones.
Speaking further, the PDP described the appointment of the new service chiefs as rather late in the day, when much harm had already been done to our national security.
