Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has accused former service chiefs who were sacked last week of getting involved in politics.
Wike who said this while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, warned that if the new service chiefs are to toe the path of those before them, then the nation will not experience any turnaround in security issues.
The Governor added that the nation appreciates the change of service chiefs, but warned that the issues do not end at the exchange of baton.
“This was the problem we had with the previous chiefs, they were involved in politics rather than face the security of the nation.
“Nobody can deny that fact; the moment you politicize security, then you are bound to have problems.
“The new people that are appointed must ask themselves, what is our agenda? Is our agenda to continue with where the last service chiefs stopped, or to make sure we improve?”
