Shehu Sani, a former Nigerian lawmaker, has reacted to the alleged humongous severance packages given to the ousted Service Chiefs.
The social critic claimed the Service Chiefs left the nation in the hands of terrorists and bandits but were rewarded with enticing benefits.
In a post via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, Sani wrote, “The other service chiefs left us with terrorists and were rewarded with ambassadorial appointments; these ones left us with bandits and were rewarded with SUVs.”
His reaction followed reports that the Chief of Defence Staff and the other Service Chiefs got bulletproof Sport Utility Vehicles, personal aides, guards and other perks of office, including generous allowance for medical treatment abroad, as retirement benefits.
Recall that President Bola Tinubu had sacked all Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police, Advisers, and the Comptroller-General of Customs, weeks after his inauguration.
Tinubu also replaced them with new appointees.
