Buhari, while decorating the new military chiefs at the presidential palace in Abuja, noted armed banditry, kidnapping and militancy of various forms as other security challenges that must be reduced to the lowest ebb by December.

“The activities of these misguided groups and individuals have resulted in wanton destruction of lives and property of our citizens as a disruption of the social and economic lives of millions of Nigerians,” the Nigerian leader said.

He added: “The increasing incidence of attacks and destruction perpetrated by these insurgents have led to the deployment of various instruments of national power in a bid to contain their activities and restoring law and order in every part of the country”.

Commending the Nigerian armed forces for their efforts so far in tackling Boko Haram, Buhari urged the military to brace up and continue to team up with other stakeholders to come up with a well-coordinated joint effort which will bring a desired end to the activities of the terror group and other criminal activities in the country.
The newly decorated defense chief, Lt.-Gen. Abayomi Olonishakin told reporters he and other military chiefs are strategizing on how to handle most of the security challenges in Nigeria.

“The president has given a presidential directive and we will ensure that we achieve the desire of the president,” he said.
