Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni has expressed optimism that the appointment of new service chiefs by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, would bring an end to the nation’s security issues.
Buni made this comment in a release signed by his spokesman, Mamman Mohammed on Saturday.
In the statement, Buni averred that the National Security Adviser, Malam Nuhu Ribadu’s experience would be vital in surmounting insecurity bedeviling the nation.
The governor said: “The security chiefs also have the wealth of experience and confidence of Nigerians to lead the fight against insecurity in Nigeria.
“As people from the frontline states, we commend the federal government and the security agencies for the tremendous achievements recorded in the states.
“We are optimistic that as active players who played key roles in the relative peace enjoyed in the states, the new service chiefs would add value to bring the insecurity challenge to a total halt.
“They have at different times proved their worth and competence in various national assignments.” Buni stressed.
He added: “The President made the right choice and we will continue to support all security operations in our domain.
“Malam Nuhu Ribadu is an excellent team player who would work in synergy with the security chiefs to achieve the set goals.”
He, however, charged the Nigerian populace to show the new chiefs maximum in order to over the security problems.
“These great efforts boosted the morale of the security forces to fight the insecurity scourge effectively, efficiently and with dexterity,” Buni said.
