Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, has warned officers and soldiers against indiscipline, indolence, negligence and all untoward acts.
The Army Boss gave the warning on Tuesday at a special luncheon to mark Eid-El-Kabir Sallah celebrations organised for troops under Sector 2 Operation Hadin Kai in Yobe State.
Represented by Sector 2 Commander, Brigadier General Adamu Nura, the Three-Star General pledged to promote merit, applaud gallantry, celebrate excellence and honor heroes.
“It was in that spirit that I conferred the COAS Commendation Awards to some deserving officers and soldiers on Tuesday 6th July, 2021 during the NADCEL 2021.
“I will also see to our return to the cherished customs, ethics and traditions of the Nigerian Army. While not compromising our investment in the officer cadres, I am particularly concerned with the development of individual soldier as well as empowering the Regimental Sergeant Majors (RSMs) and the Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCOs) so that they can play their roles effectively as a bridge between the officers and soldiers”, he said.
For Those wounded in action, General Yahaya assured that they would be adequately treated and their requirements such as wheelchairs, prosthesis and other special vocational training will be provided.
“To our colleagues who have paid the supreme price, we shall continue to do our best to ensure the comfort of their families, through prompt payment of all their entitlements, including medical bills and school sponsorship of their children”.
The Army Chief, however, appreciated the immense sacrifices of troops in Operations HADIN KAI, HADARIN DAJI, THUNDER STRIKE, WHIRL STROKE and all other operations the Nigeria Army engaged both in the country and abroad.
He urged officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army to remain apolitical, continue to discharge their duties professionally in the defence of the Fatherland and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
