President Jonathan has appointed new Chief of Defence Staff and service chiefs for d armed forces. Vice Admiral O. S. Ibrahim is new CDS.

These new service chiefs will mount the saddle at a period of serious security challenges.Apart from the  lingering Boko Haram crisis , there is the endless case of kidnappings and also mindless,inexplicable  killing of students in various institutions.The military too has been part of the security task forces helping to tackle the internal security challenges.

The new chief will be expected to inject fresh ideas on how to tackle the problems.
