A pro-Buhari organisation, Re-elect Buhari Movement (RBM) has commended the foresight of President Muhammadu Buhari in not yielding to calls for the sack of Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police.
A statement by its convener, Emmanuel Umohinyang, said the recent experience has shown that the President digs deep in arriving at decisions on important national affairs, stressing specifically that, “recent successes in the war against terrorism and criminality have shown that the security heads have the capacity to deliver.”
According to Umohinyang, though Nigeria was still facing some challenges in tackling insecurity, the armed forces and the police have shown that they are on top of the game, judging by recent developments.
The group boss, therefore, stressed that what the security chiefs needed was the support to forge ahead in carrying out their assignments instead of needless criticisms.
The statement reads: “Since their appointment, the service chiefs and the IGP have shown character. They have shown quality leadership, and we have equally seen from the results from the field security wise, especially the decimation of Boko Haram in the Northeast. We cannot but give them kudos.
“This could not have happened if the President had not been diligent in selecting these characters, so my take is that generally, the service chiefs have performed, though we still have incidents of attacks here and there.
“These attacks are unlike what we had in the past. You can see that for the first time after a long while in our history, we can now hold our Independence parade at Eagles square.”
