President Muhammadu Buhari has charged the newly-appointed service chiefs to secure the country.
I have charged the new Service Chiefs to keep in mind that the nation is looking to them for rapid relief. They must identify competent officers irrespective of seniority and paper qualifications, and work with them to secure this country. As C-in-C I am backing them 100 percent.
As I assured at our last security meeting, I have taken responsibility as C-in-C for them to go out into the fields and every part of the country, to ensure peace and security. I have accepted responsibility for all actions taken in fulfillment of the mandate to secure Nigeria.
My charge to the new Service Chiefs. Congratulations again to them, and I wish them the very best.

Hear the CDS;
“I pledge the unalloyed loyalty of the Armed Forces to you (Mr President) and to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We will not ask our officers and men to do anything without leading by example… The President has given us marching orders. Nigerians should expect peace and security across the country.”
