“Sit Up or Get Fired”: Senate President Warns Service Chiefs
The Nigerian Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has asked service chiefs to sit up or get sacked. Lawan issued the warning while speaking with reporters after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on the increasing rate of security issues in the country.
The Senate President said he believes in providing more resources for the security agencies and their heads to tackle insecurity in Nigeria; however the chiefs of service must put the provided resources to good use and make sure the nation is secured.
He said, “If after we provide some supports and someone is found short of expectations, he should be shown the way out if he refuses to go. This is because the lives of Nigerians are so precious and therefore must be more important than any other considerations or sentiments.”
