‘For Nigeria to enter a season of economic prosperity and social development as the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu envisages, security must be top notch. The President knows right and has taken audacious steps with the appointment of new service chiefs with proven military expertise and years of remarkable experience in service to fatherland’, says the board member of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF), Dr. Ayo Ogunsan to National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP as he congratulated the acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun and the new Chief of Army Staff, Maj.

I encourage youths to pick valuable lessons from Egbetokun.’
On COAS Lagbaja, the Grand Patron of the Police-Community Relations Committee (PCRC) in Lagos, Ogunsan added: ‘President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has shown once again that he places premium on service-oriented and value-driven individuals.

He is a General rooting for you and acting with you on the frontlines.’
‘This duo deserves commendation of Nigerians. Likewise, the President and Commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR who appointed them. I want them to hit the ground running’, Ogunsan concluded.
