The former governor of Imo State and senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha, has described the killing of people by gunmen as an insult to Nigeria and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack all his appointees.
He said this in Lafia, Nasarawa State on Wednesday when he paid a condolence visit to the state Governor, Abdullahi Sule and the family of the late Nasarawa State All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman, Phillip Tatari Shekwo, who was abducted and killed by gunmen in the state.
He stated that the president should appoint fresh people to work with him because all those currently working with him had failed the country.
Okorocha stated, “President Muhammadu Buhari should fire the people he hired to work for the country because they have failed and are not performing in the national assignments assigned them.
“The killing of people by gunmen should not happen again as it is an insult to the country.
“President Buhari should hire competent hands to develop the country as many countries suffered similar fate before they experienced growth and development.”
There have been growing anxieties over the worsening insecurity situation in Nigeria.
The Saturday massacre of 43 farmers in Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents, has seen many Nigerians requesting President Buhari to fire his service chiefs while some citizens are asking for his resignation from his position as president.
