The former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said he can’t call for service chiefs’ sack since he didn’t appoint them.
Obasanjo stated this while on a courtesy visit to Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, over the death of his mother, Abigail.
He called for a strong synergy to exist between the citizens and the federal government, as it will help address the issues affecting the country.
The elder statesman who listed economic instability, poor governance, and insecurity as the major challenges, urged the citizens to be proactive and relentless in addressing the logjam.
Obasanjo said, “There are many challenges in Nigeria today. There are challenges of insecurity, economy, and political instability, among others. These challenges are not really new, except that they have taken a different dimension.
“I believe that the most important aspect of dealing with all the challenges we have is leadership, and the people must come together. But then, there must be leadership to get everybody to work.”
Addressing the recent call for security chiefs’ sack in solving the insecurity challenges, he said, “I did not appoint security chiefs. How can I ask that they be sacked? If I have a piece of fatherly advice for the security chiefs, I will not give it through the media.”
