Ribadu leads pack as Nigeria gets new security chiefs


By Tasie Theodore


Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Nuhu Ribada has been appointed National Security Adviser to lead a pack of new security chiefs in Nigeria.

Ribadu, who is also a former presidential candidate, had been named last week in a pack of new Special Advisers to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Some of the other top security personnel named on Monday in a statement from the Office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation, are:

Chief of Defence Staff: Maj. Gen. C. G Musa

Chief of Army Staff: Maj. Gen. T. A Lagbaja

Chief of Naval Staff: Rear Admiral E. A Ogalla

Chief of Air Staff: AVM H. B Abubakar

Chief of Defence Intelligence: Maj. Gen. EPA Undiandeye, and

Inspector General of Police Ag.: DIG Kayode Egbetokin.


Nigeria has been beset by a myriad of security challenges in the past few years and many had looked to former President Muhammadu Buhari to address them frontally. at his exit on May 29 however, the consensus remained that there was still indeed a vast array of security challenges to be addressed.
