Former Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Mike Ejiofor, has tasked President Muhammad Buhari to make a surprise move in 2021 by sacking all service chiefs and appoint new ones to tackle the security situation in the country.
In an interview with Channels TV, the former DG said for Nigeria to see progress in the fight against terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, and all other criminal offenses, Buhari must change his approach, tactics, equipment, and his long-serving service chiefs.
“I expect that Mr. President should take Nigerians by surprise; change the service chiefs. Nigerians and their attitude to security agencies should change too,” said Ejiofor.
“I think by the change of tactics, equipment, attitude, service chiefs, and approaches, we’d make progress, I believe so very strongly,” he concluded.
There had been clamour by the citizens and major stakeholders, including the National Assembly, asking the president to relieve the current service chiefs of their positions, and give fresh ones a chance to restore public confidence.
