President Mohammadu Buhari has ordered the new service chiefs to secure the country in few weeks after he decorated today, March 5.
The decoration of the new service chiefs took place this morning at the state house in Abuja.
The President also urged the service chiefs to identify competent officers irrespective of seniority and paper qualification and deploy them to make sure the nation is secured.
”During our four-hour security meeting, on Tuesday, I had taken the responsibility as Commander-in-Chief for you to go out into the field and secure the country.
“You have got a few weeks to do that because by the rainy season, we expect people to develop confidence and go back to the land.
“So that we don’t get into trouble by being away from the field and therefore unable to produce enough food for the nation.
“I have accepted responsibility for your actions in the field; it’s up to you to identify your competent officers irrespective of seniority and paper qualification and deploy them to make sure that we secure this country.
“We all look forward to you to perform and I as the Commander-in-Chief, I am backing you hundred percent, and I expect you to effectively deploy your officers and men to secure the country.”
