Reps Confirm Army Chief’s Appointment

The House of Representatives on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of Major-General Farouk Yahaya as Chief of Army Staff, following the death of Lieutenant-General Ibrahim Attahiru who died in a Kaduna air-crash along with 10 others.

The Senate had confirmed his appointment on June 22.

Major-General Yahaya was appointed by President Muhamamdu Buhari on May 27, days after the immediate past army chief.

The serving army chief resumed office on May 28.

He has reiterated the army’s resolve to end insurgency in the North-East and other security threats across the country.

“We want to conclude this operation in the North-East,” Major-General Yahaya said on Saturday, “so that we can do other things; and that is the drive now.”
