Concerned Elders tells Buhari to sack Garba Shehu over  insensitive comments


Concerned elders across the nation have demanded the sack of Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity of President Buhari, over his alleged insensitive comments. The request of the elders follows Shehu’s comments claiming that the tenure of Service Chiefs depended on the Commander-in-“pleasure.” Chief’s

In spite of the worsening insecurity in the country, Shehu had appeared on television and made the statements while responding to questions about the President’s reason for retaining the Service Chiefs. He had argued that no part of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria stipulated any tenure for military high command in 1999.

Following the current security situation, Jackson Spiff for South-South, Alhaji Baba Usman Funtua, North West, Prof. Shehu Bulama for North East and Dr. Isaiah Terhila for North-Central areas, respectively, warned the presidential assistant against the wrath of Nigerians. “We are alarmed by a rather reckless, insensitive, shameful and unprofessional statement attributed to Garba Shehu, President.”
