Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has given a major reason the immediate past Nigerian security heads failed.

Wike said the security chiefs did not do well 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.

The Rivers Governor, therefore, called on the newly appointed service chiefs to shun politics and avoid the path of 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.

According to him, no meaningful changes will be seen from the new appointees if they toe the path of their predecessors.

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?”

The new service chiefs are: Major-General Leo Irabor as Chief of Defence Staff; Air Vice Marshal Isiaka Oladayo Amao as Chief of Air Staff; Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo as Chief of Naval Staff; and General Ibrahim Attahiru as Chief of Army Staff.
