North-East group hails new Chief of Defence Staff Musa’s appointment

Maj.-Gen. Christopher Musa

The North-East Peace Advocacy Group has welcomed the appointment of Maj.-Gen. Christopher Musa as the new Chief of Defence Staff.

This is contained in a statement signed by the group’s convener Bukar Adamu on Monday.

The statement said the appointment indicated President Bola Tinubu is willing to deal decisively with insecurity. It explained that Mr Musa’s tenure as theatre commander of Operation HADIN KAI had significantly contributed to restoring peace in the North-East.

“Those who were displaced by the insurgency in the North-East region have since started returning to their various towns and villages. We are elated by the elevation of Maj. Gen. Musa to the highly coveted seat of the Chief of Defence Staff,” the group noted.

The statement added, “It is a position that caps all his excellent performance in the various offices he has held in the service to his fatherland. During his tenure in the North-East, our people had cause to smile as he was instrumental to our safer return to our various homes.”

According to the group, Mr Musa’s time as the commander “has led to the surrender of thousands of terrorists who could no longer bear the intensity of the firepower.”

It commended Mr Tinubu for “this worthy appointment” of the new defence chief, the winner of the highly coveted Colin Powell Meritorious Award for Soldiering for 2022.
