The National President of Almushahid Initiative for Transparency and Accountability (AITA), Ambassador Aminu Abubakar Majidadi called on President Muhammadu Buhari to thread with caution, appointment of a new Chief of Army Staff after the demise of Late Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru.
Ambassador Majidadi stated this to Capitalwatch Media reporter on Tuesday in his Abuja head office. The anti-corruption champion started by commiserating with President Muhammadu Buhari over the great loss of the late COAS.
“I will like to state that the late Gen. Attahiru came on board and began a wonderful job in making available necessary measures aimed at putting a stop to the current nationwide threat of insecurity before his sudden death.”
“Indeed Gen. Attahiru’s dead is a set back to us as a country and to the army who have over the years been battling with insurgency, banditry, kidnapping and other insecurities in our dear nation.
However, I will like to tell the enemies of Nigeria that with the help of God and caution by Mr President in appointment of new COAS, there are still in the army likes of Late Gen. Attahiru who can come and build on the foundation the late general made to defeat insecurity currently bedeviling our nation.” Majidadi stated.
AITA national president further said President Buhari as a retired general should be able to yet appoint a capable COAS as the late who came come and give hope to Nigerians and the army in this hard times of insecurity.
Majidadi in conclusion commend the efforts of the military and wish them the best in their task of defending the territorial integrity of our country ensuring that Nigeria remains one sovereign nation void of insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, etc.
