Buhari breaking the law over refusal to sack service chiefs – Shekarau

The senator representing Kano central, Ibrahim Shekarau, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is breaking the law, by keeping the service chiefs beyond their years of service.

There have been fresh calls for Buhari to sack the service chiefs amid growing insecurity across the country.

Speaking on Sunrise Daily on a Channels Television programme, on Thursday, Shekarau said the service chiefs ought to go when they are 60 years of age or when they complete 35 years of service.

He also described them as public servants and insisted they must be treated as such.

“He (Buhari) is breaking the law. The law says if you are 60 you must go, it is so automatic. If you are 35 years of service, you must go.

“In fact, they are not staff of the president, they are staff of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and there is a rule. It is just like in the civil service.

“If you are an ordinary civil servant and you hit 60 years, automatically you must go.

“The president hasn’t the right to extend beyond what the law says, that is the rule of law.

“The issue of this sacking of the service chief; it has been on for almost two to three years now. There is one point I think the presidency is missing and the public has not been brought on to it,” Shekarau said.
