JUST IN: President Tinubu holds closed door meeting with NSA Chairman, New Service Chiefs at Aso Rock
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently having a closed-door meeting with all the service chiefs he appointed recently.
The meeting which began few minutes ago at the Presidential Villa Abuja, on Monday, has in attendance the Chief of Defence Staff, Major-General C.G Musa; Chief of Army Staff, Major-General T. A Lagbaja; Chief of Air Staff, AVM H.B Abubakar; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Emmanuel Ikechukwu Ogalla; and acting Inspector-General of Police, DIG Kayode Egbetokun.
Recall that Tinubu shortly before embarking on a trip to Paris, France to attend a financial summit had jolted the nation when he sacked the former service chiefs and announced new ones as replacements.
Tinubu had also gone ahead to appoint a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, as the National Security Adviser (NSA), replacing Babagana Monguno.
While the new service chiefs have since assumed duties, their appointment had generated diverse reactions amongst Nigerians.
The ongoing meeting marks the first time Tinubu is meeting them officially as President of Nigeria.
