The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism (CATE) has faulted the Tuesday’s call by the National Assembly for the sack or resignation of the Service Chiefs.
The Senators made the call during plenary on Tuesday in reaction to a motion by Senator Ali Ndume.
Senator Ndume moved his motion as a result of the recent ambush of soldiers in Katsina and the alleged voluntary resignation of many soldiers.
Reacting to the call, President Muhammadu Buhari in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu said it is only the President that can sack Service Chiefs and no one else.
However, CATE said the Senate erred by making such a call at this critical time when the Nigerian troops are sweating it out on the battlefield to clear the remnants of terrorists from the shores of the nation.
