Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called on members of the armed forces to keep their focus on the restoration of peace and stability across troubled areas of the country.


Sanwo-Olu said this while receiving the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa, in a courtesy call, explaining that the economic recovery efforts of President Bola Tinubu can only succeed if the military tightened its grip over those attempting to undermine the nation’s security.


The governor however, re-emphasised the need for the Defence Headquarters to support its officers towards maintaining good mental health, not only during their period of service, but also in retirement.


He urged the Defence chief to bequeath a legacy centred around building strong welfare for officers, while advocating improved security operation and intelligence mechanism to restore stability in areas still burdened by banditry, noting that there were still pockets of violence being recorded in the Northeast.
