President Muhammadu Buhari has been commended for the nomination of the immediate past service chiefs as Non-Career Ambassadors.

The development according to a natural ruler, the Olowu of Kuta in Ayedire Local government of the State of Osun, Oba Hammed Oyelude, Makama has finally laid to rest insinuations and speculations alleging that they committed war crimes against humanity.

Oba Oyelude said the outgone heads of the nation’s security apparatus going by their pedigree have distinct records in service to their fatherland.

The monarch noted that the new ambassadorial nominees should use their wealth of experience as security eggheads to galvanise efforts directed at Nigeria’s peacekeeping initiatives.

Oba Oyelude stated “The appointments have clearly put paid to insinuations of impending trial by International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity,; allegations and speculations which have trended on the media space for a long time.

“The fact is that none of the immediate past service chiefs has had any proven charge of human Rights abuse to answer before any court within and outside Nigeria, as none of them has been invited or appeared before any court to answer to charges of criminal breach of fundamental human rights of Nigerians.

“President Buhari deserves applause for providing another platform for the retired service chiefs to lend their rich military experience for the advancement of Nigeria’s image in the county of Nations.

“Retired General Tukur Buratai and his colleagues therefore need to use their new appointments to galvanize global support for Nigeria’s peace keeping initiatives and efforts in African countries where terrorism and internecine wars have negatively impacted on peoples wellbeing and impaired socio economic and political stability of such Nations.

It is hoped that the new envoys will deliver on Mr President’s mandate by employing the “Patriotism Mantra” that their years of military trainings and engagements hadd ingrained in them in service to their country,” Oba Makama added.

The traditional ruler said Amnesty International and others with varying allegations against Buratai and his colleagues have been proven wrong with their appointments to serve the nation in greater capacities, a testimony to their delivery in service.
