Goodluck Jonathan reveals why he removed Ihejirika as Chief of Army Staff

Goodluck Jonathan, the Former President of Nigeria on Tuesday, disclosed that he decided to sack a former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Azubuike Ihejirika, because he (Ihejirika) was not doing the right thing.

The Former President made it clear that he was not under any pressure to sack Ihejirika from office, adding that he cannot sack a person who is doing the right thing no matter the pressure.

Jonathan made this known during a book launch in his honour in Abuja on Tuesday, adding that some people thought he sacked the former COAS due to some pressure from the North.

According to him, “He mentioned my removing the Chief of Army Staff, General Ihejirika and said that because there was so much pressure on me from the north, it was not pressured.
