He congratulated President Tinubu on his successful inauguration, stating that his capacity and intellectual competency would no doubt go a long way in contributing to his performance in office.
“We declare our unalloyed loyalty to Your Excellency’s vision and mission for Nigeria ‘s National Security and we pray that the dream of the nation for an efficient community and Forest counter-terror armed fighters will be realized in your tenure as the nation awaits your assent to our Bill” .
The Commander General therefore reiterated the c the readiness of NHFSS to work with the present administration towards getting rid of crimes and criminality in the nation’s forest and all ungoverned spaces across the country.
He explained that officers and men of the Service nationwide had already been trained towards achieving the mandate on national security in the New Administration of President Bola Tinubu.
