The Nigerian Senate has been uproar with President Muhammadu Buhari over his refusal to sack service chiefs that they say have overstayed in office thereby culminating in the rampant kidnappings and running out of ideas and insecurity including last weekend’s attack on Zabarmari in Borno state where over 43 farmers were killed by Boko Haram terrorists.

Senators in plenary while contributing to a motion moved by Senator Shettima Kashim representing Borno Central on the deteriorating security across Nigeria resolved that President Buhari should immediately initiate the transitionary process of phasing out the current overstayed security chiefs and replace them with new ones who have fresh ideas and solutions to the insecurity challenges currently on going in Nigeria.

The Senators also resolved that President Buhari should take immediate steps to remodel, restructure, and revamp the country’s entire security system and provide enough state of the art weapons and equipment for the military to combat the insurgents.

The Senate had in previous seating tell President Buhari to sack the service chiefs but were ignored by the executive who hit back at them that such a resolution was not binding on Buhari as sacking or not sacking of the military chiefs strictly falls within the powers of the executive.
