THE Federal Government yesterday appointed a new Chief of Defence In­telligence (CDI) for the armed forces.
He is Air Vice Marshal Mohammed Saliu Usman. He takes over from Ma­jor General John Sarduana Davies, who had been acting since January this year, when the former CDI, Air Vice Marshal Monday Morgan retired.
According to the Armed Forces Stat­utes, the position of Chief of Defence Intelligence (CDI), which is the apex in the intelligence community, is ro­tational among the services. With the Army and the Navy serving their terms of three years, it fell on the Air Force but AVM Morgan who got appointed when President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015, was caught up with (ROD), ‘run out date’ and had to retire. Major General Davies was there­fore appointed in an acting capacity un­til a suitable CDI whose recommenda­tion was approved by President Buhari was appointed.
