FG must reshuffle military, other security agencies – CACOL, CD speak on plot to disrupt 2019 elections
some groups were trying to disrupt the 2019 general elections.
The groups while speaking with Punch called on the Federal Government to treat the alarm raised by the security chiefs on the 2019 elections with urgency and seriousness.
The civil societies said the government before 2019 elections must reshuffle the military and other security agencies to bring in efficient hands, devoid of political and economic interests.
The CACOL Director, Debo Adeniran on his part said, “That alarm by security chiefs is a manifestation of the ominous sign of distrust between the serving and retired military officers.
“These are ominous times and the government must not fold its arms. It is a warning that should be taken seriously and everyone who is investigated to have such plans against the 2019 elections must be arrested and prosecuted, no matter whose ox is gored.
“They should be rounded up and made to sign an undertaking for the 2019 elections.”
The CD President, Usman Abdul, said, “We will not condone any act of sabotaging our democracy. We call on the President to allow those security chiefs who are due for retirement to go.
“The President must bring in those who are capable of steering the course of the 2019 elections.
“Given these security alerts, the government must not let the 2019 elections go awry. There must be an action immediately and one of such actions is the removal of whoever is deemed inefficient.”
