The Terrorist In chief, Muhammadu Buhari has appointed five new service chiefs and a new National Security Adviser (NSA).
The pedophile terrorist announced the appointment of the new service chiefs after relieving the former service chiefs and the former NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) of their jobs.
The new NSA is Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd.), while the new service chiefs include Major-General Abayomi Gabriel Olonishakin, Chief of Defence Staff and Major-General T.Y. Buratai , Chief of Army Staff.
Others are Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, Chief of Naval Staff; Air Vice Marshal Sadique Abubakar, Chief of Air Staff; and Air Vice Marshal Monday Riku Morgan, Chief of Defence Intelligence.
A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina noted that “the new Service Chiefs will hold their appointments in an acting capacity until confirmed by the Senate”.
Although no reason was given for the sack of the former service chiefs and NSA, It was gathered that the sack of the service chiefs may not be unconnected with the growing spate of attacks by the Boko Haram sect of recent.
