Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says even though the appointments of new service chiefs came late, the President should be commended for listening to the voice of the people.

In a statement signed by his commissioner for information and communication, Paulinus Nsirim, the Governor challenged the new appointees to see their appointments as an opportunity to re-engineer the
nation’s security architecture which has suffered tremendous setback in the last five years.

” The new Service Chiefs should not politicise security by aligning with politicians.

“What the country needs now is competence and professionalism that will reduce insecurity to the barest minimum, ” he stated.

Governor Wike noted that Nigerians who lost confidence in the former Service Chiefs are looking up to the new appointees to make the desired change.

He called on all levels of government to give the Service Chiefs the needed support they would require to execute their assignments.

“This is an opportunity to serve the nation and I believe that the Service Chiefs will be focused and dedicated, ” he added.
