While briefing reporters after the meeting, the Chief of Defense Staff, Major General Abayomi Olonisakin, said the meeting had become necessary to review the operations of the military after 60 days into the new order and assured Nigerians that the mandate would be delivered, in spite of the challenges of weather and logistics.
