Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has congratulated the newly appointed Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Abayomi Gabriel
Olonishakin, describing the appointment as merited and well deserved.
The governor also thanked President Mohammadu Buhari for finding an Ekiti man worthy of appointment as the Chief of Defence Staff for the first time in the history of Nigeria.
In a release issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Governor Fayose said the honour done Ekiti with the appointment will
not be misplaced, adding that he was confident that Major General Olonishakin will exhibit the courage, intelligence, honesty and hard work that Ekiti people are noted for in the discharge of their duties.
“At this crucial time in the existence of Nigeria as a nation, I have no doubt that Major General Olonishakin will justify his appointment by making our country safe again.
