In recognition of his successes towards ending terrorism in Nigeria and the Lake Chad basin, the Coalition for Governance and Leadership in Nigeria will present the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Abayomi Olonisakin, with the 2018 African Man of the Year award.

The award scheduled for presentation on December 13, according to a letter by the coordinator of the coalition, Okpokwu Ogenyi, is aimed at spurring the general to do more in the fight against Insurgency.

Okpokwu said that after carefully observing Olonisakin’s commitment towards fighting insurgency and suppressing emerging terrorists, cattle rustlers and other bandits across the country, “it is necessary to applaud his efforts, so that he can be motivated to do more for the country.”

He described Olonisakin as a military officer that knows his job and committed to rooting out the remnants of Boko Haram in the country.
