Army chief charges troops to be effective in operations

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, has charged troops of the Nigerian Army to reciprocate the good gestures and derivatives of the ongoing transformation drive by giving their best to effectively combat security challenges bedevilling the country.

Major General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director, Army Public Relations, in a statement, noted that

General Lagbaja gave the charge when he addressed troops of the Nigerian Army Armoured Corps at the official commissioning of the Corps Headquarters Complex in Obienu Barracks, Bauchi.

According to the statement, with the support of the Federal Government, the Nigerian Army has currently cleared the first batch of the backlog of Group Life Assurance that had hitherto accumulated since 2012 and also commenced payment of the Personnel Accident Insurance Scheme to personnel who were wounded in action or had other forms of accident during operations, as well as the implementation of several other welfare schemes to improve the living standards of personnel and their families.

He added that several combat platforms that are unique to the Armoured Corps are being repaired and retrofitted at the Nigerian Army Command Engineering Depot, in the face of the harsh realities of the economic situation of the country.

He enjoined the troops to respond to these positive developments by exhibiting high standards of discipline, dedication, and loyalty.

General Lagbaja also addressed the Biennial Reunion of the Armoured Corps, where he solicited the cooperation and collaboration of both serving and retired senior officers to move the Nigerian Army Armoured Corps forward and restore its traditional and rightful position as the Combat Arm of Decisions in the Nigerian Army.
