The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has explained why the immediate past Nigerian security heads did not perform.
According to him, the security chiefs failed woefully because they lost focus and delved into politics.
“Instead of concentrating on the security of the nation, the service chiefs were very much involved in politics,” Wike said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
He advised the new security chiefs to shun politics so that they would not lose focus like their predecessors.
“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,” Wike added.
He noted that no tangible success would be recorded if they follow the path of Tukur Buratai and the other three service chiefs
He said, “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?
