Worried by the worsening insecurity in the country and the United States warning that the Islamic State of Iran and Syria, ISIS and al-Qaeda have penetrated North-West geo-political zone of Nigeria and working towards expanding further South into the littoral areas of the country, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo has asked the federal government of Nigeria to change service chiefs.
Speaking through his media adviser, Emeja Attamah, Nwodo said: “It is dumbfounding for Ohanaeze Ndigbo to know that the Defence Headquarters is admitting that they are aware of the development without alerting the populace so as to elicit cooperation in checking the trend.
“It is even more appalling for it to be the United States that will now bring it to the consciousness of Nigerians. This further fuels the alleged conspiracy theory making the rounds about our armed forces colluding with our invaders. This also raises further questions about the continued retention of service chiefs and what it portends. Nigeria is in real trouble and all must be double vigilant.
“No amount of money pumped into the defence apparatus will bring about change until the desired and needful change in manpower and control is done. Change the service chiefs and bring back moral and discipline within the rank and file”.
