A former lawmaker representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, has reacted to the appointment of the new Service Chiefs.
Naija News recalls that President Buhari on Tuesday appointed new service chiefs for the nation after he sacked the previous ones.
This was confirmed on Tuesday in a tweet from presidential media aide, Femi Adesina in which he also quoted the president as appreciating the outgone service chiefs for their performance.
But in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Tuesday, Melaye asked Nigerians not to celebrate yet the appointment of the news service chiefs.
He wrote: “Don’t shout Hallelujah or Alhamdulilihi for the locomotive announcement of new service chiefs. Not Uhuru yet. Shine your eyes Nigerians.”
Dont shout Hallelujah or Alhamdulilihi for the locomotive announcement of new service chiefs. Not Uhuru yet. Shine your eyes Nigerians. SDM

Meanwhile, former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has commended President Buhari for finding the courage to sack his service chiefs.
In a post on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode asked the new Service Chiefs to commence work immediately by confronting terrorism.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain urged the new security heads to ensure the protection of lives and properties of Nigerians.
Fani-Kayode: “I commend Buhari for finding the courage to change his Service Chiefs. Let us hope that the new ones make a difference.
“They must hit the ground running& confront the menace of terrorism. They should send every terrorist to hell and protect the lives and property of the people.”
