Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for sacking the Service Chiefs and immediately appointing their replacements.
Wike also warned the new service chiefs against politicizing the state of security by making alliances.
He said: “The new Service Chiefs should not politicize security by aligning with politicians.
“What the country needs now is competence and professionalism that will reduce insecurity to the barest minimum.”

In a statement on Tuesday, Wike expressed that the President should be commended for listening to the voice of the people, even though the appointments came late.
He stated that Nigerians who lost confidence in the former Service Chiefs are looking up to the new appointees to make the desired change.
The governor asked the new service chiefs to see their appointments as an opportunity to serve the Nigerians and the country and to restructure the nation’s security architecture which has worsened in the last five years.
Wike also called on all levels of government to give the Service Chiefs the needed support they would require to execute their assignments.
