A protected legal counselor, Chief Mike Ozekhome, has depicted the tribute of the previous Service Chiefs – Gen Abayomi Olonisakin, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar and Vice Admiral Ibok Ete-Ibas, for their presentation by President Muhammadu Buhari as stunning and an affront to Nigerians.
Ozekhome noticed that it wasn’t right for the President to praise them and portray their accomplishments as “overpowering” when the nation was still helpless before criminals, hijackers and the Boko Haram fear based oppressors.
Ozekhome expressed this in a delivery on Wednesday wherein he responded to the arrangement of the new help bosses.
The assertion said the wretched execution of the ex-bosses with hordes of wrongdoings being executed everywhere on the nation meant that they bombed woefully.
He said the all out breakdown of Nigeria’s security format has since prompted around 23 out of 36 Nigeria states, establishing their nearby security outfits.
The assertion somewhat peruses, “Buhari’s all the more stunning part of the expulsion of the Service Chiefs from office, which has so far stunned Nigerians, is the place where he said he was praising them for their ‘staggering accomplishments in our endeavors at carrying suffering harmony to our dear country’. ‘Suffering harmony?’ Is this certifiable harmony, or tranquility of burial ground or the memorial parks?
“My word reference reveals to me that harmony implies peacefulness, quiet, tranquility, lawfulness, agreement, placidity, rest, truce, fellowship, fraternity, quietness, happiness, friendship, compromise. Can any Nigerian hold the Holy Bible, Holy Quran, or piece of iron (contingent upon your confidence), and swear, that we have any of the abovementioned? I think not. I accept not. At that point the President added the cherry on top, the diadem: the ‘Administration Chief’s staggering accomplishments’.
“In the event that Mr President signified ‘overpowering accomplishments’ in gigantic disappointment, I would agree. In any case, in the event that he signified ‘overpowering accomplishments’ in making sure about our country, I would not just dissent, I would say that is the unkindest interesting expression and incongruity, of all. I tend to disagree sir, Mr President.
“The new Service Chiefs seem more youthful and lower in position than their pot-bellied archetypes.
“Is this difference in batton simply corrective? Is it new wine in old calabashes? Has anything out of nowhere changed as far as new gear, reconnaissance and insight limit and ability? Does the hood make the priest? Could a book’s worth be known by the magnificence of its cover? No. It isn’t yet Uhuru.
“What this reduces to is that Nigeria needs to re-engineer, revamp, reconsider, change and re-request her complete security apparatchik. To be sure, it needs a total redesiging, for example, to align it with current worldwide prescribed procedures in security commitment.”
President Buhari on Tuesday selected new assistance bosses, at long last relinquishing the Chief of Defense Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, after the four had gone through five years and five months in office.
In spite of the fact that Buhari said on Tuesday that he acknowledged their acquiescence letters, the Defense Headquarters, Abuja, as of now explained in the past that the military bosses couldn’t leave and must be laid off by the Commander-In-Chief.
Buhari had on July 13, 2015, designated Olonisakin, Buratai, Ibas, and Abubakar.
In a State House Press Release on Tuesday, Buhari’s Special Adviser, Femi Adesina, said the new assistance bosses were: Major-General Leo Irabor as the CDS, Major-General Ibrahim Attahiru as the military boss, Rear Admiral A. Z. Gambo as the maritime boss and Air-Vice Marshal I. O. Amao, as the new air boss.
