Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has congratulated the newly appointed Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Abayomi Gabriel Olonishakin, describing his appointment as merited and well deserved.
The governor, in press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for finding an Ekiti man worthy of appointment as the CDS for the first time ever in the history of Nigeria.
According to Fayose, the honour done Ekiti with the appointment of Olonishakin would not be misplaced, adding that he was confident that the new CDS would exhibit the courage, intelligence, honesty and hard-work that Ekiti people were noted for in the discharge of his 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.
“I therefore pray that God will continue to give him the strength and wisdom to give his best at all times”, the governor said.
