Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, says the immediate past Chief of Army Staff played politics with the country’s security.
Wike said this on Monday in a statement by his Special Assistant Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
He said he was particularly unhappy with the way Buratai discharged the functions of his office.
Wike accused Buratai of political bias citing the arrest and detention of recruits of the Rivers State Neighbourhood Watch Safety Corps who were undergoing training at the National Youth Service Corp orientation camp at Norwan in Rivers.
The governor, however, advised the new service chiefs to shun politics and concentrate on strategy that would expeditiously end insurgency in the country.
“They must understand that challenges are enormous and so they have a lot of work to do. They should not concern themselves with politics,” he said.
