Nigerian Army will continue to give back to society – Army Chief
The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya says the Nigerian Army under his watch will continue to give back to the society in recognition of the cooperation and support enjoyed from citizens towards actualizing its constitutional mandate.
In a statement issued by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, the COAS stated this during the commissioning of a 1000 capacity Town Hall at Akinmoorin in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State on Friday 9 September 2022
General Yahaya commended the loyalty of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army for their service and sacrifices in defending the nation, charging them to remain committed in the ongoing fight against terrorism and security challenges in the country.
On the commissioning, the Army Chief said that it was part of the civil-military cooperation efforts of the Nigerian Army.
He, therefore, urged officers to sustain peace and harmony while admonishing them to utilize the edifice for the collective good of the community.
The Project Executor, who is also the Chief of Operations (Army), Major General Olufemi Akinjobi, an indigene of Akinmoorin community, stated that the successful completion and commissioning of the project is a remarkable landmark in the state.
He noted that the project is part of the COAS’ special intervention project and the dream of the community, which had remained elusive for thirty-two years.
General Akinjobi appreciated the COAS for the honour done to the community by approving and personally commissioning the project.
He assured the Army Chief of the community’s support in the realization of his vision and development of the country.
