President Muhammadu Buhari & Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity

Never ever in the recent history of the nation has the country been so vulnerable, with insecurity so obvious in all nooks and crannies of states that make up the country and so so scary. It has been so terribly bad that many had called for the sack or immediate resignation of those that were manning the different arms of the military, but all to no avail.

Until today, Tuesday, January 26, 2021 when it was announced via a welcomed ‘statement that was carefully worded’ below and credited to the ‘Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina’ that the service chiefs have all (resigned) not (sacked) and that new ones have been appointed in their place to immediately take over from them. The word ‘resigned’, may have been the Government’s own way of giving them some sort of soft landing. As an outright mention of sack, may have suggested that the FG have been incompetent all this while.

Maybe now with this injection of new energy, that is expected to be brought on board and injected into the various arms by these new helmsmen, we may begin to see the required changes and results that the citizenry have demanded all of this while.

Find Femi Adesina’s statement below-


President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted the immediate resignation of the Service Chiefs, and their retirement from service.

Those involved are the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.

President Buhari thanks the outgoing Service Chiefs for what he calls their “overwhelming achievements in our efforts at bringing enduring peace to our dear country,” wishing them well in their future endeavours.

The new Service Chiefs are: Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General I. Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral A.Z Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao, Chief of Air Staff.

The President congratulates the new Service Chiefs, and urges them to be loyal and dedicated in the discharge of their responsibilities.
