He, however, added that the plans can’t be made public yet but will be unveiled gradually as they get implemented.
The Army Chief made the submission on Saturday at a dinner in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, in honour of former Theatre Commander (TC) of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen. Olusegun Adeniyi.
Buratai also charged troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole to be set for a busy undertaking in the fight against the insurgents.
“We will not disclose our plans but I’m sure that as you settle down, you will have a very busy time. And all the new commanders should prepare for a very busy period,” Buratai told the new Theatre Commander, Maj. Gen. Farouk Yahaya.
The COAS also praised the outgoing commander Maj. Gen. Olusegun Adeniyi for his dedication, commitment and understanding.
“It is an honour well deserved for someone who has shown very high level of dedication, commitment and demonstrated a great understanding of the operational environment.
“He came at a point when actually most of the FOB’s were falling and his coming proved a turning point in the operation,” the COAS said.
The new Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen. Farouk Yahaya assured of his readiness to lead the Army operations to achieve the desired mandate.
