FALANA SPEAKS

According to Sahara Reporters, appointment of new service chiefs illegal and unconstitutional for the president to single-handedly appoint service chiefs without the approval of the National Assembly says Falana.

According to Falana, the President did not forward the names of the proposed service chiefs to the National Assembly for approval in compliance with the relevant provisions of the constitution and the Armed Forces Act since we are in a democratic system of governance.
