•New portrait of Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya
The Nigerian Army has advised media houses to disregard the old official portrait of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, and make use of the new one.
The new portrait reflects the new rank of Lieutenant General which the COAS was decorated with by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on July 7.
In a statement on Friday, the Army lamented that the old portrait which has Yahaya with the rank of Major General is still being used by media houses.
The statement was titled, ‘Wrong Use of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Official Portrait,’ and signed by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu.
It read, “Following the appointment and subsequent decoration of the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, an official portrait was produced and disseminated to the media houses via various social media platforms and forums.
“However, it has been observed with dismay that despite this, some media houses, defence correspondents and online media practitioners have persistently used the official portrait of the COAS when he was still a Major General in various command appointments.
“In light of this, you are please requested to disregard all pictures of the COAS from his former Commands and use the approved official portrait attached below; all to please note and comply accordingly. Thank you for your usual cooperation,” it said.
