President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday announced the replacement of Nigeria’s service chiefs.
“PMB appoints new Service Chiefs. Maj Gen LEO Irabor, CDS, Maj Gen I Attahiru, Army, Rear Adm AZ Gambo, Navy, AVM IO Amao, Air Force. He congratulates outgoing Service Chiefs on efforts to bring enduring peace to the country,” Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina tweeted.
However, on the President’s twitter handle, it was gathered that the service chiefs, who a cross section of the country had been united in the call for their sack, actually resigned.
“I have accepted the immediate resignation of the Service Chiefs, and their retirement from service. I thank them all for their overwhelming achievements in our efforts at bringing enduring peace to Nigeria, and wish them well in their future endeavours,” Buhari tweeted.
