The Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has commended the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his efforts in the careful selection of the new security chiefs.
Stating this through a statement released by his Director-General, Press and Media Affairs, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, in Damaturu on Saturday, the governor stated that the careful selection of new security chiefs by the President would get Nigeria closer to the end of security challenges, ravaging the country.
According to him, the new National Security Adviser, Malam Nuhu Ribadu would bring his wealth of experience to bear in the fight against insecurity.
“The Security Chiefs also have the wealth of experience and confidence of Nigerians to lead the fight against insecurity in Nigeria.
“As people from the frontline states, we commend the federal government and the security agencies for the tremendous achievements recorded in the states.
“We are optimistic that as active players who played key roles in the relative peace enjoyed in the states, the new Service Chiefs would add value to bring the insecurity challenge to a total halt.
“They have at different times proved their worth and competence in various national assignments.
“The President made the right choice and we will continue to support all security operations in our domain,” the governor said.
However, the governor also commended the administration of the immediate former President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rted), for equipping frontline troops and forging a new spirit in the nation’s security personnel, to see their assignment as a call to national duty, while urging Nigerians to support the new service chiefs to succeed in their efforts to combat security challenges in the country.
“These great efforts boosted the morale of the security forces to fight the insecurity scourge effectively, efficiently and with dexterity,” he added.
