COAS reassures troops of adequate medical needs

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya has reiterated the Nigerian Army’s commitment to prompt and adequate attention to the medical needs of wounded troops fighting insurgency in the North East.

The COAS gave the assurance on Saturday, at the 2022 combined Eid-el-Kabir Luncheon organized for wounded troops receiving treatment in a medical facility at the Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri.

Yahaya, who was represented by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Maj.-Gen. Andrew Omozoje, said he remained passionate about the provision of the highest standard of medical care to wounded soldiers on the frontline and all Nigerian Army personnel and their families both locally and abroad.

He expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for his support to the Nigerian Army and urged the officers and soldiers to remain loyal, unwavering, patriotic and committed to preserving democracy in Nigeria.

He said that the army would continue to provide the best support to those wounded in action by providing aids such as wheelchairs, prosthetics and special vocational training to hasten their recovery.

“It is, therefore, a great pleasure to felicitate with all officers, soldiers as well as civilian staff of the Nigerian Army and their families on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration,” he said.

The COAS lamented that the nation had been faced with myriads of security challenges which had distorted the livelihood of all citizens but noted that the Nigerian Army would continue to employ effective means to tackle the challenges through the professional conduct of its officers and men in the field.

He said Eid-el-Kabir Festival was a special occasion which reminded all of the significance of loyalty, obedience and sacrifice.

He said it also provides a unique opportunity for all to reflect and pray for the grace of the Almighty Allah to defeat all detractors and bring lasting peace to the country.

The COAS also paid a special tribute to troops who paid the supreme price in defence of the nation, noting that the army under his leadership remained committed to ensuring the welfare of their families and preserving the memories of their uncommon sacrifices.
