Senators have urged the new Service Chiefs to commence work immediately by addressing security challenges facing the country.

A cross-section of senators interviewed by the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday lauded the appointment of the new service chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP-Abia), said the appointment had been long-awaited.

“The appointment of new service chiefs is better late than never.

“We have been calling for this for a long time now.

“Let us hope that this team would stem the tide of insecurity,” he said.

Sen. Ahmed Babba Kaita (APC-Katsina), corroborated Abaribe’s claim saying that the appointment was in response to the yearnings of Nigerians.

“It is in response to the yearnings of Nigerians and I believe we are all good for it.

“It is a very good development and I want to believe that we are going to see a consolidation of the progress made so far because as you are all aware, in the last two months, the military has been recording successes both in the fight against Boko Haram and kidnappings.

“We are very grateful for this development and we expect nothing less from the incoming personnel. We expect them to be ready to take over and consolidate on the security gains so far made,” he said.

“The relieved service chiefs have done very well within their own capacity and Nigerians have for long yearned for a change which is one of the mantra of the current regime.

“It is only change that is permanent and haven done this, I want to thank the President and as well plead on the incoming service chiefs to commit their new posting toward the wellbeing of Nigerians.
“We need to have a better security infrastructure in our country,” Ubah said.
