A group under the aegis of Nigeria Youth Organisation (NYO) has lauded President Bola Tinubu’s choice of Service Chiefs appointments, describing it as unbiased, fair and balanced.
Comrade Okorie Okorie, President of the organisation, gave the commendation in an interview with NAN in Abuja on Tuesday.
He congratulated the Service Chiefs on their appointments, saying that Tinubu had demonstrated enviable leadership quality with the balanced appointment.
“Tinubu is a very good man who understands the challenges of Nigeria.
“His appointment clearly indicates that he is a leader and father to all, he wants to run a government of national unity,” Okorie said.
He urged Nigerians to support the Tinubu-led administration, adding that it was time to close ranks for a better and progressive Nigeria.
According to him, Tinubu’s appointment of Service Chiefs shows that all parts of the country are accommodated, irrespective of religion or tribe.
Okorie said the appointments of a Southern Kaduna minority as Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) and South South minority as Chief of Defence Intelligence (CDI) were strategic considering the level of insecurity in Southern Kaduna and the need to carry the minorities along in governance.
Okorie pointed out that the balanced appointment had given Nigerians hope for a better future.
DAILY POST recalls that Tinubu on Monday appointed Mallam Nuhu Ribadu as National Security Adviser, Maj.-Gen. Christopher Musa, Chief of Defense Staff (CDS), Maj.-Gen. Taoureed Lagbaja, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) and Rear Adm. Emmanuel Ogalla, Chief of Naval Staff.
Others are AVM Hassan Abubakar, Chief of Air Staff, DIG Kayode Egbetokun, Acting Inspector-General of Police, and Maj.-Gen. Emmanuel Undiandeye, Chief of Defense Intelligence.
