President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday told the newly appointed service chiefs that Nigeria is currently in a state of emergency.
He charged the chiefs to be patrotic and serve the country well. Buhari also charged them to be concerned about the morale of their officers and men. He urged them to make the men feel physically and professionally secure.
“There’s nothing I can tell you about the service, because you are in it. I was also in it, and I will pray for you. I also assure you that whatever I can do as Commander-in-Chief will be done so that the people will appreciate your efforts.
“You know the stage we were in 2015, you know the stage we are now, and the undertakings we made. We promised to secure the country, revive the economy, and fight corruption. None has been easy, but we have certainly made progress,” Buhari said, according to his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
The Minister of Defence, Major-General Bashir Magashi (retd), led the service chiefs (Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral AZ Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air Vice-Marshal IO Amao, Chief of Air Staff) to the meeting with President Buhari.
