By Ganiyu Nasirudee – The newly appointed Chief of Army Staff (CAS), Major General Tukur Buratai has announced his resolve to spend the incoming Eid-el-Fitr break with the National troops currently waging war against the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents in Yobe State, North Eastern Nigeria.
General Buratai made the disclosure to journalists Thursday in Abuja after a closed door meeting on his working plan with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He affirmed that there was no much to say by him for now, until later, as he was moving from Abuja to Damaturu, the Yobe State capital to join the soldiers in the anti-terrorists campaign.
It would be recalled Buratai’s appointment was made public Tuesday alongside other Service Chiefs. He succeeded Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah.
