The newly appointed Service Chiefs have been charged to evolve pragmatic strategies to overcome the various security challenges facing the country.
The Vision Centre for Communication and Development Advocacy (VICCDA), expressed optimism that the military chiefs would deploy their wealth of experience in counter terrorism and anti insurgency to curb terrorism and other criminal activities.
The Acting Chairman, VICCDA, Otunba Gbenga Onayiga in a signed statement made available to journalists in Kano, Thursday, said “The present breathe of fresh air in the military top bracket will usher in an era of a safer Nigeria where the people can go about their daily activities freely.”
He urged the new service chiefs to be dedicated and committed in the onerous task of securing the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
According to Onayiga “curbing the various security challenges bedeviling our dear country like terrorism, armed banditry and kidnapping should be given priority, while the general public should also pray for and support the new service chiefs.”
