Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), says President Muhammadu Buhari will not sack service chiefs.
The Nation quoted him as saying this while addressing journalists after a book presentation by Samuel Salifu, former general secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN), in Abuja on Tuesday.
Mustapha said it is premature to sack the service chiefs because of Nigeria’s growing insecurity.
According to him: “We are in a very difficult time now. We need everybody to be on board. We need synergy within intelligent community, within the military formations that will help fight this war.
“We are in a very difficult situation and when we begin to create cracks and divisions, who will be the beneficiaries?
“The adversaries are the ones that are going to exploit those deficiencies and further the cause of destabilising the nation”.
