Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, has accused ex service chiefs who were fired last week of getting involved in politics.
Wike who disclosed this while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, warned that if the new service chiefs are to trade the path of their predecessors, then the nation will not experience any turnaround in security crisis.
Wike 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?”
