Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will not sack service chiefs now.
Mustapha, who spoke with reporters in Abuja after a book presentation titled: CAN, Religion, politics and power in Nigeria, criticised those calling for the sack of Service Chiefs, stressing that the due process must be followed if at all they would be sacked.
The book was written by a former General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Engr. Samuel Salifu.
Mustapha said: “We are in a very difficult time now. We need everybody to be on board. We need synergy within intelligent community, within the military formations that will help fight this war.
“We are in a very difficult situation and when we begin to create cracks and divisions, who will be the beneficiaries? The adversaries are the ones that are going to exploit those deficiencies and further the cause of destabilising the nation.
“You don’t sack people like that. There are processes and I believe that at the opportune time, those processes will be followed. You don’t just wake up and say, sack people, it doesn’t happen like that.
The SGF said what government wants every Nigerian to be on the same page, fight the battle of securing the nation, and ensure that every Nigerian has the opportunity to live a prosperous life.
