The Presidency on Tuesday has shed more light on why President Muhammadu Buhari suddenly changed Service Chiefs.

Speaking on behalf of the Presidency, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina said that the time was right to rejig the country’s security system.

Adesina was reacting to statements that Buhari replaced the Service Chiefs  after several calls by Nigerians.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Adesina said: “The President knew the time to do it and I believe the time has come and that is why it has been done.

“I don’t think it is a matter of right or wrong, it is just a matter of doing what is best for the country at the best time.

“It will not be right to say one side was right or one side was wrong because the President even in the statement we issued, also commended the outgoing service chiefs for their contribution to engendering a safer country.

“That shows that by and large, he was satisfied with their performances and he just felt it was time to rejig the system; have fresh energy, have fresh blood, have fresh ideas”.
