The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Taoreed Lagbaja, has assured Nigerians of the renewed vigour from army formations in combating the myriad of security challenges bedeviling parts of the country.

The army chief, who was the reviewing officer at the passing out parades of 85 Regular Recruit intake held at Depot, Nigerian Army, Zaria, said the passing out of 6,315 recruits would bridge one of the gaps identified in its fight against insecurity.

Lagbaja assured that in the coming days, the law-abiding citizens would witness renewed stability and an atmosphere of peace to enable them go about their lawful businesses.

“I must underscore that the new soldiers are coming into the Nigerian Army when our dear county is faced with a myriad of security challenges.

“The variety of threat they will be posted to manage on the field include insurgency in the North East, banditry and cattle rustling in the North West, farmers/herders clashes in the North Central, secessionist agitation and cultism in the South East, militancy and vandalisation of national asset in the South South, to mention but a few,” he said.

The COAS, therefore, tasked the commandant of the depot and his team to take a few months off from now to next recruitment to reflect on how to improve training towards aligning the product of depot NA with emerging requirements in the field.

In an interview with newsmen at the event, the Kaduna State governor, Mallam Uba Sani, expressed optimism that the new soldiers would augment army’s efforts in its fight against insecurity.
