Reps Hail Buhari Over Appointment Of New Service Chiefs



The House of Representatives has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for demanding the resignation of the service chiefs and appointing their replacements.

The House, however, urged Nigerians not to expect magic from the new service chiefs.

Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Benjamin Kalu, in an audio statement issued in reaction to the development, said the executive arm of the Federal Government had finally listened to the demand of Nigerians.

Kalu said Nigerians had spoken through various resolutions by the House, some of which called for a change of the service chiefs and rejigging of the nation’s security architecture.

According to him, the security might have been worse if the former service chiefs were not in charge.

The House’s spokesman, however, noted that the new service chiefs would spend “a new energy”, with a different focus, strategy and tactic.
