    Badaru emphasized that the established timeline would subsequently be relayed to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who would closely monitor the progress made in the implementation of the outlined strategies.

    Speaking in Abuja, Badaru mentioned that he intends to engage both the service chiefs collectively and individually in order to facilitate an effective resolution. He acknowledged that he might inadvertently cross the established command structure in his eagerness to achieve positive outcomes.

    He stated, “Our responsibility is to deliver, and for the betterment of our country, we understand that without security, investment would be deterred. This, in turn, would hinder economic growth, and even the fundamental aspect of food security is jeopardized, as farmers are unable to access their fields.”

    Elaborating further, Badaru affirmed the President’s willingness to provide unwavering support in this endeavor. Hence, he urged the service chiefs to promptly present a comprehensive timeline along with their operational requisites to systematically address the multifaceted security issues the country faces.

    Badaru underscored the gravity of the situation by stating, “This proposed timeline and strategic approach will be conveyed to the President, who, I assure you, will actively oversee our progress. His expectations are high, and he does not possess tolerance for those who lack commitment. Therefore, the success of our endeavors is pivotal, as our roles are contingent on our performance.”

    In his statement, Bello Matawalle expressed his commitment to collaborating with relevant ministries and agencies to institute initiatives that would mitigate the socio-economic disparities that often contribute to conflicts. He emphasized the significance of seeking advanced technology and expertise through international partnerships to bolster the nation’s defense capabilities. However, he cautioned that sustainable security cannot be solely achieved through military might, stressing the importance of holistic approaches.

    Gen. Christopher Gwabin Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff, assured the government of the service chiefs’ unwavering loyalty and dedication to their responsibilities. He reiterated their determination to reinstate peace, stability, and security within Nigeria. Musa highlighted the collaborative nature of their efforts and expressed optimism about the positive changes they would effect. He concluded by affirming their united professional commitment towards achieving a peaceful and secure Nigeria.
