Addressing security challenge requires joint efforts — COAS

Maj.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, the new Chief of Army Staff, says addressing security challenges in Nigeria required joint stakeholders’ efforts.

Yahaya said this in Abuja on Tuesday when he appeared before the joint House of Representatives Committees on Defence and Army for screening.

He said he hoped to bring his 36 years’ experience in the army to bear and work with other chiefs and all stakeholders to address security challenges in the country.

“From my experience, this job cannot be done by a single service or entity, the army itself is a group work not individual and that is why we’re arranged in sections, companies, battalions and brigades.” (NAN)
