The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen Faruk Yahaya, has reaffirmed his commitment to improving the cordial relationship between the civilian populace and the Nigerian Army.
He pledged this while commissioning the newly constructed six blocks of classrooms at Leme Bora Primary School and the renovated Nurul-Ulum Primary School undertaken by the Nigerian Army in Gembu community of Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba State.
The COAS noted that the Nigerian Army has in recent times embarked on elaborate quick-impact projects in several communities across the country to provide the desired succour to Nigerians and strengthen the existing good relationship between the people and the Nigerian Army.
He revealed that the gesture has over time significantly contributed to the NA’s successes in containing the multifaceted security challenges facing the nation, particularly through the non-kinetic approach.
Represented by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3 Division and Commander Operation SAFE HAVEN (OPSH), Major General Abdulsalami Bagudu Ibrahim, the COAS appreciated the project executor, Major General Abubakar Adamu (retired) for the choice and quality of the projects.
Earlier in his welcome remarks, Chairman of Sardauna Local Government Area, Dr AA Jugulde, thanked the force for honouring Major General A. Adam with a cost-effective project that will benefit many generations of the communities. He described the senior officer as a philanthropist and a detribalized Nigerian.
