The media Adviser to Mr President, Femi Adesina, had on Monday announced the appointment of new service chiefs to head the nation’s security. The list includes:
Chief of Defence Staff, Maj.Gen. Abayomi Gabriel Olonishakin; Chief of Army Staff, Maj.Gen. T.Y. Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas; Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and Chief of Defence Intelligence, Air Vice Marshal Monday Riku Morgan.
This decision was however greeted by mixed feelings, some say it is a huge step ahead in the fight against insurgency while other critics have tagged it a desperate move to look active and nothing more.
However, everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt therefore let the lot prove their worth.
