Only Buhari can sack Service Chiefs – Presidency replies Nigerian Senate


The Presidency has said it is just President Buhari that can sack Service Chiefs and nobody else.

The administration made this known hours after the Senate passed a resolution asking Service Chiefs to leave or get terminated for rising uncertainty in the country, particularly the ongoing killing soldiers and mass abdication in the military.

In any case, in a short articulation gave on its twitter handle, @NGRPresident, the Presidency said just President Buhari maintains whatever authority is needed to choose or sack Service Chiefs.

“The Senate on Tuesday embraced a goal approaching the Service Chiefs to leave or be sacked due to the multi-pronged security challenges in the nation.

The Presidency notes the resolution, and reiterates that appointment or sack of Service Chiefs is a Presidential prerogative, & President Muhammadu Buhari, in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, will do what is in the best interest of the country at all times.” the tweet read
