Maidawa stated that the tour was an important component of the National Security and Organisation of Defence Module of the course and constituted a vital part of the training programme.
He said the tour was designed to expose participants to the geo- strategic environment.
It would also afford them the opportunity to appreciate the link between geo-strategic mechanisms and Nigeria’s foreign policy towards countries within and outside the West African sub-region.
“The Tour Director is the Commandant of the college, Maj.-Gen. Bamidele Alabi, while the team leader visiting the Republic of Egypt is the Deputy Commandant/Director of Studies, Brig.-Gen. Umar Alkali.
“The Director of Coordination, Brig.-Gen. Olawale Oyekola is leading the other team to South Africa,” Maidawa stated.
