Former governor of Abia State and senate chief whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, says the new service chiefs need about six months to understand Nigeria’s security system.
In January, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed the new service chiefs — Lucky Irabor, chief of defence staff; Ibrahim Attahiru, chief of army staff; Awwal Gambo, chief of naval staff, and Isiaka Amao, chief of air staff.
Their appointment came amid calls by Nigerians on the government to urgently address the security challenges.
Speaking when he featured on Channels Television on Sunday, Kalu said the appointment of the new service chiefs will not immediately translate into improved security in the country.
He made the comment while answering a question on what the national assembly was doing to address the setting up of security outfits by regions.
Despite the change of service chiefs, the security situation in the country has become much worse
