Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has said the careful selection of new security Chiefs by President Bola Tinubu, will get Nigeria closer to the end of its security challenges.
Buni stated this in a statement by his Director-General Press and Media Affairs Alhaji Mamman Mohammed in Damaturu on Saturday.
He noted that the 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,” Governor Buni stressed.
“The President made the right choice and we will continue to support all security operations in our domain” he said.
The governor called on Nigerians to support the new service chiefs to succeed.
He also commended the Buhari administration 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.
“These great efforts boosted the morale of the security forces to fight the insecurity scourge effectively, efficiently and with dexterity,” Gov. Buni said.
