(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Apex Igbo Socio cultural body, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari, for reorganizing the nation’s security Architecture, via changing the Service Chiefs
After a prolonged outcry by Nigerians over the insecurity situation in the country, President Buhari, on Tuesday announced Major General Lucky Irabor, as the Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of Army (COAS) staff, Rear Admiral Awwal Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff, and Air Vice Marshal Isiaka Amao, Chief of Air Staff.
Ohaneze in a statement made available on Friday in Enugu said the action will go a long way to reassure Nigerians that Mr. President is determined to contain and control the nation’s security problems with fresh ideas and strategies.
The statement signed by the newly elected president General, Ambassador George Obiozor, read: “We particularly thank Mr. President for the appointment of Major General Lucky Irabor a tested General and a gentleman.
“However, Mr. President, one way of ensuring compliance with Federal character provision of the Nigerian constitution is to observe the distribution of important and vital offices of the Federal Government in accordance with the zonal structure.
“Mr. President, particularly in the area of the security architecture of the country, the South East zone which was conspicuously absent in your first term has now again not been included so far in your recent appointment of service chiefs.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo hopes and believes that Mr. President in continuation of appointments in this sector would consider the South East zone. We wish Mr. President a successful second term with peace and security for the country and prosperity for the people of Nigeria.
