Kaduna - The Chairman of the Retired Army, Navy and Air Force Officers Club, retired Maj.-Gen. Zamani Lekwot, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for addressing the security challenges in the country.

Speaking in Kaduna on Saturday 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."

Lekwot said the retired officers were now advisers on national or state issues, adding that they were ready to respond to any call by the government for service to the nation.
