A former senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has told Nigerians to refrain from rejoicing that the Service Chiefs have been replaced.
On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari replaced the following:
Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
The new 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; Air-Vice Marshal I. O. Amao – Chief of Air Staff.
But Dino, a famed critic of the Buhari administration, noted that Nigerians should first observe before rejoicing.
On his Twitter page, the former Senator wrote: “Do not shout Hallelujah or Alhamdulilihi for the locomotive announcement of new service chiefs. Not Uhuru yet. Shine your eyes Nigerians.”
