Former Service Chiefs Defeated Boko Haram In Newspapers – CNPP
The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has mocked former Service Chiefs for always claiming victory against Boko Haram on the pages of newspapers.
The body said President Muhammadu Buhari did the right thing by removing them.
In a statement on Wednesday, CNPP Secretary General, Willy Ezugwu, urged the new military heads to inject fresh ideas into the war against insurgency and criminality in the country.
“The former security chiefs obviously failed to live up to their calling and preferred winning the war against insurgency on pages of the newspapers than in the battlefield.
“The life of every Nigerian matters and should be accounted for at any time as it is the primary responsibility of the government to protect the lives and property of Nigerians”, it read.
CNPP expressed confidence that morale of officers and men had been restored, adding that this would translate to successes against enemies of the state.
