President Buhari has finally sacked the service chiefs, effective immediately. He also appointed new hands to take over the batons of piloting the security affairs of the country.
Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser On Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, made this known in a tweet on Tuesday.
He wrote, “PMB appoints new Service Chiefs. Maj Gen LEO Irabor, CDS (Chief of Defence Staff), Maj Gen I Attahiru, Army, Rear Adm AZ Gambo, Navy, AVM IO Amao, Air Force.
“He (Buhari) congratulates outgoing Service Chiefs on efforts to bring enduring peace to the country.”
The outgoing service chiefs are General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin (Chief of Defence Staff); Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (Chief of Army Staff); Vice Admiral Ibok Ibas (Chief of Naval Staff); and Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar (Chief of Air Staff).
There have been calls by Nigerians that the service chiefs be replaced by President Buhari and having done that, it is believed that the fresh hands will effectively combat the security challenges confronting the nation in recent times.
The move is being applauded by Nigerians.
