Musa Na Allah Sokoto
On behalf of the Government and good people of Sokoto state, I wish to humbly congratulate our brother and citizen, Gen Faruk Yahaya Sifawa, who for about three decades have being an exemplary ambassador of our dear state at the national level and globally.
This is the first time that a citizen of our remarkable state will ascend the enviable position of a Chief of Army Staff in the annals of the Nigerian Army.
I, therefore, once more on behalf of our compatriots in the state, the Sultanate Council and other stakeholders, express profound gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for finding our son worthy of this onerous national assignment.
As we congratulate Gen. Yahaya, we happily wish and pray for Allah’s guidance and support as he takes over this important job at this time when the country is grappling with disturbing security challenges.
