Safe Environment: COAS reaffirms commanders’ commitment

In collaboration with sister services and other security agencies, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, has reaffirmed the commitment and capacity of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army (NA) to ensure a safe and secure environment for good governance and socioeconomic development.

This was contained in a statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu on Thursday in Abuja.

The COAS made the declaration on September 14, 2023, at the Army Headquarters Command Officers’ Mess 1, Asokoro Abuja, during the closing ceremony of the Chief of Army Staff Combined Second and Third Quarters Conference 2023.

Speaking further about the conference, the COAS asserted that the briefings and presentations delivered during the conference had strengthened the assignments and amply illustrated the difficulties the NA would face.

All formation commanders were given the order to adjust their strength in order to inflict a crushing blow to the country’s enemies.

The significant decisions made during the conference, he continued, will force the NA to reevaluate its operational and training initiatives in order to achieve the desired results.

General Lagbaja remarked that the conference provided a veritable platform to review Nigerian Army (NA) training, and operational and administrative activities that directly relate to national security.

In an effort to offer protection and support to the families of troops who died while serving, the COAS also gave checks to 10 NA Personal Insurance Scheme’s first recipients.

The Nigerian Army’s appreciation for the service and sacrifices of its men in defending the country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty is shown in the COAS’s gesture.

The Army Chief promised the unwavering commitment of the officers and soldiers of the NA to the Federal Government and Nigeria’s constitution while thanking the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria for his interventions in repositioning the NA for optimal operational performance.

He insisted that other forces would look to the NA as a good example.

The awarding of the National Order of Chad Medal of distinction to Major General Abdul Kahlifa Ibrahim, who served as the former Force Commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF), during his tour of duty, was the highlight of the conference.
