He made this known while speaking on Channels TV Sunrise Daily on Thursday.
With the recent spike in terrorist and bandits attacks on several communities across the country, there have been increased calls for the sack of the service chiefs.
Reacting to the trending lawmaker, the former lawmaker expressed that beyond the argument regarding performance, the Military Chiefs have overstayed their years of service and as such, the laws guiding the scheme of service are being flouted.
“The President is breaking the law, the law says if you are 60 you must go, it is automatic.
“If you are 35-years in service, you must go. In fact, they are not staff of Mr. President, they are the staff of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and there is a rule,” Shekarau said.
Shekarau further expressed that regardless of how indispensable the President has found the service chiefs, he should allow them retire like bany public official will do as the rules state.
