on

Several civil society organizations (CSOs) have accused service chiefs of operating illegally since his term ended on Saturday, July 13, 2019.

CSOs under the aegis of the Civil Rights Coalition for Justice, Peace, and Security (CRJPS) criticized the approval of the Army Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, for a reorganization within the superior hierarchy of the army.

Speaking to reporters in Abuja on Monday, Executive Secretary of the coalition, Barr. Abubakar Dan Bauchi said that due to the worsening of insecurity in the country, it was time for President Muhammadu Buhari to hear the upheavals in many sectors and to review Nigeria’s security architecture.

He said: “We note with regret that the continued retention of the Chief of Defense Staff and the Chiefs of Service although his constitutional mandate expired since July 13, 2019, is not in the spirit and letters of our revered Armed Forces of Nigeria.

“The fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has not heard the voice of reason and removed the security chiefs has not helped either; since development has not contributed much to the stagnation in the careers of our capable military personnel, in addition to the apparent fact that their morale in professional duties had been weakened.

“We, the Civil Rights Coalition for Justice, Peace, and Security have asked the President to do what is necessary immediately by removing the Chief of Defense Staff and the heads of service, given that their constitutional mandate has expired.

“Any official action taken by the Chief of Defense Staff and the heads of service after this date is considered not only illegal but also null and void.

“His tenure in office would amount to a severe violation of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and will also demoralize officers and men who can not grow in the system.

“As not only citizens of this country, but also lovers of the current government, we are obliged to make this appeal to the President to immediately withdraw the service chiefs who were appointed on July 13, 2015, for two years and whose charges of Offices were expanded. Our records show that they completed four years.

“Bearing this in mind, we ask the President to immediately withdraw the Chief of Staff and the various heads of service, since any official action taken in the office after July 13, 2019, will amount to illegality.

“Also, his continued presence in the office is compressing the system and may have been responsible for the many security lapses we have in the country today.”

Chiefs of service include Chief of Defense Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin; Chief of Staff of the Army, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai; Chief of Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas; and the Chief of Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
