Breaking New: Buhari Swears In New Army Service Chiefs




President Mohamadu Buhari has sworn in the new Army service chiefs. Performing the ceremony at the presidential Villa, Abuja, the president charged them to brace up against Boko Haram insurgency, armed robbery and militancy.


“I want to reiterate that your appointments and subsequent elevation to these ranks are based on your pedigree as first class senior officers who identify sterling leadership qualities.

Therefore I have no doubt in my mind that all of you are equal to the task ahead of you. You must acquaint yourselves and justify the honour done to you.

“You are all aware of the various security challenges facing our nation. These challenges include the activities of Boko Haram

terrorists, armed banditry, kidnapping, militancy of various forms to mention a few”, the president said.

It will be recalled that the president on July 13 appointed the service chiefs including a new National Security Adviser, NSA.

Buratai (Chief of Army Staff), Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas (Chief of Naval Staff) and Air Vice-Marshal Sadique Abubakar (Chief of Air Staff), Air Vice Marshal Monday Riku Morgan (Chief of Defence Intelligence) and retired Major-General Babagana Monguno (National Security Adviser)
