President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Assembly have been asked to immediately dismiss the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, and the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, “for endangering national security through successive cocktails of spectacular derelictions of duties in the defence and electoral sectors.”

The request was made this afternoon in Abuja by the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA).

Conversely, the rights group showered encomium on National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.), “for his efforts in developing a wide range of counter-insurgency mechanisms and extensive deradicalisation models which if implemented at every level of Nigeria’s educational curricular will dramatically shrink the recruitment space for would-be terrorists and will infuse the spirit of patriotism in Nigerian youths.”

HURIWA in a statement signed by its Natcional Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, also commended the NSA “for successfully organising with the support of President Goodluck Jonathan series of constructive and meaningful conferences and lectures around the thematic issues of media relations with the military services.” The rights group called on the National Defence Council headed by President Jonathan “to authorise the post-retirement promotion of the National Security Adviser to the rank of a full General with all the post-retirement benefits therein.”
