The new Service Chiefs have been given a two weeks ultimatum by President Muhammadu Buhari to secure the country.

President Buhari gave the directive on Friday, March 5, shortly after decorating the new military commanders with their new ranks at the presidential villa, Abuja.

A statement by a presidential aide, Femi Adesina, is quoted as saying that President Buhari said he expects the county to be secure before the rainy season, so that farmers who abandoned their farms in different parts of Nigeria can be confident to return to farmlands.

He said: ”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.”

The president stated that the service chiefs should see their appointment, clearance, and decoration as a vote of confidence on them, advising them to identify competent officers and deploy them effectively to make sure that the country is secure.

Buhari also assured the military commanders of his firm support as they deliver on their responsibilities.
