The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria [PENGASSAN] has thrown its weight behind the House of Representatives and has called for the immediate resignation of the nation’s service chiefs for failing to tackle the rising insecurity in Nigeria.
PENGASSAN agreed that the service chiefs have overstayed their tenure in office in the various arms of the nation’s armed forces.
PENGASSAN said by overstaying their tenure, the service chiefs had contravened the laws of the armed forces on retirement and disengagement from active service and had, therefore, become lethargic.
PENGASSAN, in a statement recently, said that the growing rate of insecurity in the land had become a nightmare.
The statement read in part,
“On daily basis, stories of killings in states such as Borno, Plateau, Kaduna, Adamawa and the recent beheading of the Adamawa State Christian Association of Nigeria Chairman have saturated the mass media.
“The Boko Haram sect for example, has been relentless in the shedding of blood and destruction of properties of innocent victims. We condemn in totality these atrocities and find it highly unacceptable.”
