BREAKING: Tinubu, newly appointed service chiefs in closed-door meeting at Aso Rock

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently having a closed-door meeting with all the Service Chiefs he appointed recently.

The meeting which began a few minutes ago at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday, has in attendance the Chief of Defence Staff, Major-General C.G Musa; Chief of Army Staff, Major-General T. A Lagbaja; Chief of Air Staff, AVM H.B Abubakar; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Emmanuel Ikechukwu Ogalla; and acting Inspector-General of Police, DIG Kayode Egbetokun.

Recall that Tinubu, shortly before his recent trip to Paris, France, to attend a financial summit, had jolted the nation when he sacked the former service chiefs and announced new ones as replacements.

Tinubu had also appointed a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, as the National Security Adviser (NSA), replacing Babagana Monguno.

While the new service chiefs have since assumed duties, their appointments had generated diverse reactions from Nigerians.

The ongoing meeting marks the first time Tinubu will meet the new Services Chiefs officially as President of Nigeria.
