Paul Enenche responds to the call for the sack of service chiefs

The Defence Headquarters, on Friday, described calls for the sack of service chiefs as unfortunate and unguarded, noting, however, that the calls do not dampen the soldiers’ morale in any way.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major-General John Enenche, said this on Arise TV.

Due to the deteriorating security situation across the country, many Nigerians have called for the sack of the services chiefs. Just yesterday, Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike said that the service chiefs had reached their word’s end.

However, Enenche believes that the calls do not dampen the soldiers’ morale in any way. He added that the soldiers were focused on their duties and have no time for such talks.

According to Major-General Enenche, “The calls for service chiefs’ removal do not dampen our morale in any way because it is unfortunate that where soldiers are laying down their lives so you can sleep, people are coming out to talk unguarded.

“It is only in this country you can hear that. It is what we have signed for and is a task that must be done. At times a man in the war front does not even listen to such talk. How to get the job done is what’s on our mind.

“If we were discouraged we won’t get the job done. Where were we, particularly in the North-East and North-West before now? When you make the comparison you will know why we are not discouraged.”
