BREAKING: President Muhammadu Buhari has just appointed Major General Farouk Yahaya as the new Chief of Army Staff.
I too like Buhari. He doesn't disguise on the fact there there are appointments he'd never give a southern Christian or even a Northern Christian.

New Chief of Army staff is Major General Farouk Yahaya.
Apparently nobody from the South has qualified for the COAS position in the past 6years.
Tomorrow APC will pretend like they don’t know how they divided Nigeria and put us on a war path.

Buhari has appointed Major General Farouk yahaya as the new chief of army staff (COAS), making him the 3rd consecutive northerner he has appointed since 2015
There is a reason why chemistry practicals are mostly done 3X and Buhari just confirmed that.

Having Major General Farouk Yahaya as the new Chief of Army Staff is not only a wise and smart decision, it will also ensure the safety of the President and hopefully bring an end to the killings in the north. You don’t expect Buhari to name Nnamdi Kanu as his new COAS. pic.twitter.com/jExlxBi8eC

The newly appointed Chief of Army Staff, Major General Farouk Yahaya is a member of RC-37 and of the Infantry corps. Another wave of retirment list is natural & expected. 👊

I am not even slightly surprised Buhari appointed Major General Farouk Yahaya, a northern Muslim as the new COAS. A leopard can't change its spots ever. Even if na tata, as far as na northern Muslim, dem go appoint am. This government is the S.I Unit of Nepotism & bigotry.

Buhari no send; it's Major General Farouk Yahaya as the COAS.

Major General Farouk Yahaya's appointment has certified that the buhari's regime has no regard for the principle of federal character. For him, Nigeria is made up of the Northerners and the Northerners
