Buhari extends tenure of service chiefs

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the extension of the tenure of the Chief of Defence staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin, and the three service chiefs.

The service chiefs are: Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen Tukur Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar and the chief of naval staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ete-Ibas.

Defence minister, Mansur Dan-Ali, announced the approval in a statement issued by the spokesman of the ministry, Colonel Tukur Gusau, in Abuja on Monday.

The extension, according to the minister, followed a careful review of the on-going military operations across the nation.

Specifically, Dan-Ali said, the president took into consideration the efforts of the officers in the counter-insurgency operations in the North-East, and the security situation in the Niger Delta region.
