El-Raufai in a Twitter post, commended Gen. Lagbaja’s leadership style, stating that he leads from the front, making him the ideal candidate to serve as the COAS.

Drawing from his own experience during his tenure as governor, El-Rufai reminisced that Gen. Lagbaja served as his last GOC (General Officer Commanding) in Kaduna state, and he consistently demonstrated his bravery and commitment to the nation’s security.

The former governor also praised Lagbaja’s track record and emphasized that he is the best choice to lead the Nigerian Army.

“A new kind of chief of army staff who without a doubt will wipe out terrorism, banditry, vandalism, and militancy in Nigeria,” el-Rufai said.

“I know the new COAS very well. Gen Taoreed Lagbaja was my last GOC as governor of Kaduna State. He always leads from the front anywhere he is

“He personally led troops to confront bandits in Kaduna state. He did the same in the north-east and south-east. The operatives of Boko Haram, IPOB, ESN, and the bandits know well and fear him. He is the best choice for COAS.

“This video says it all. Thank you general Lagbaja. Keep on doing what you have always done so well and with valor. God Bless you.”

Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja assumed the role of Nigeria’s 23rd Chief of Army Staff in June, taking over from Faruk Yahya. With this endorsement from a prominent political figure like Nasir El-Rufai, the nation now looks to the new COAS with heightened expectations for a safer and more secure Nigeria.
