President Muhammadu Buhari has now listened to citizens that have expressed their worry over security concerns in the country and had asked him to change the service chiefs with immediate effect.
He has also appointed new ones to take over the leadership of Nigeria’s security architecture.
Buhari’s Special Adviser On Media and Publicity Femi Adesina said in a tweet on Tuesday that there is a change of batton.
“PMB appoints new Service Chiefs. Maj Gen Leo Irabor, CDS, Maj Gen I Attahiru, Army, Rear Adm AZ Gambo, Navy, AVM IO Alao, Air Force,” Adesina wrote on his Twitter handle.
“He congratulates outgoing Service Chiefs on efforts to bring enduring peace to the country.”
This change, long clamoured for by Nigerians, is coming against the backdrop of a worsening security crisis in Nigeria.
