President Buhari Seeks Senate Confirmation for New COAS

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the National Assembly seeking the confirmation of Farouk Yahaya, as the new Chief of Army Staff.

President Buhari had appointed Yahaya, a Major-General as the new Chief of Army Staff on May 27 after the demise of the former COAS, Lieutenant General, Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 others in a military plane crash in Kaduna on May 21.

President Buhari’s request was in a letter sent to the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and read during Tuesday’s plenary.

General Yahaya, a member of the 37th Regular Course of the Nigerian Defence Academy, was the Theatre Commander of Operation Hadin Kai, an outfit for counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations in the North-East before his appointment.
