Buhari Meets New Service Chiefs, Tasks Them To Restore Nigeria’s Armed Forces Reputation (Photos)
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abuja urged the newly appointed Service Chiefs to help him rebuild the reputation of the Armed Forces and the nation.
Addressing them shortly after their appointments were announced, the President also called on them to show utmost commitment to their new duties.
“All of you, including the National Security Adviser, were chosen on merit. Your records gave you the job. Save for the new Chief of Army Staff whom I briefly met at his Command at the Multi-National Joint Task Force, in Chad, I don’t know any of you. Your records recommended you.
“Legally, you are in acting capacity until the National Assembly accepts you. It is only then that you will take the oath of office. Thereafter, we will sit down and talk in more detail,” President Buhari told the new service chiefs.
He assured them that their nominations will be sent to the National Assembly either today or tomorrow for confirmation.
