Security Issues Have Reduced – Chief Of Defense Staff
The country’s security risks are decreasing, according to the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor.
Irabor made the remark during a church ceremony commemorating Armed Forces Remembrance Day this year. According to the CDS, the country’s present security concerns are not as severe as they were when they took office.
“I would like to specially commend members of the armed forces, especially the veterans who laid the foundation on which we are building upon to bring peace and security to every part of the country.
“There are challenges but the challenges are not as much as where we started from. That gives hope for everyone as we go into the year.
“There is ample opportunity to escalate the actions that brought the peace that we now enjoy and also to take it to another level where there would be no need for anyone to live in fear in any part of the country.”
