At the State House in Abuja, the President, Bola Tinubu, is currently meeting with the Service Chiefs under the direction of the Chief of Defense Staff, General Lucky Irabor.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Farouk Yahaya; the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo; the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao; and the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, met with Tinubu as soon as he arrived at the Villa on Thursday at 10:53 a.m.
The President’s first official meeting with the security chiefs since taking office on Monday will take place on Thursday.
The meeting may include briefings from each security official to keep the President informed about the state of the country’s security, even though the agenda is not yet available.
Security would be the administration’s top concern, Tinubu declared to Nigerians in his inaugural speech on Monday.
“Security shall be the top priority of our administration because prosperity and justice cannot triumph in an atmosphere of insecurity and violence,” he declared.
“We shall reform both our security DOCTRINE and its ARCHITECTURE to effectively combat this menace. “We shall invest more in our security people, and this means more than just an increase in quantity. We’ll offer greater instruction, gear, compensation, and firepower.
The Punch reported on Wednesday that Tinubu received in his audience the Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, Peng Qinghua, and Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa.
He met with Kashim Shettima, the vice president, as well as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, and Mele Kyari, the group CEO of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited, on Tuesday.
