Chairman of the Retired Army, Navy and Air Force Officers Club, Maj.-Gen. Zamani Lekwot, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for addressing the security challenges in the country, especially the spate of bombings and attacks by Boko Haram terrorists.

Speaking in Kaduna at the weekend during the annual meeting of the Kaduna State chapter of the association, Lekwot said Buhari was doing well in his attempt to control the situation.

“What we need to do is to pray for him and to support him in any way in terms of encouragement and advice to end the insurgency for peace, unity and stability.

“I believe President Buhari is a seasoned professional, intelligent and also our colleague, who has the country at heart, so we need to support him,” he said.

In his remarks, the Kaduna State chapter chairman of the association, Brig.-Gen. Tai Pedro, noted that one of the achievements of the association was the payment of its members’ pension.

He described the association as a symbol of national unity and its members met from time to time to share views for national development.

He also called on the Federal Government to review the pension since the last review was in 2010.
