Armed Forces committed to securing lives, property – Olonisakin


Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin says the Armed Forces will not rest until all lives and property are secured.

Olonisakin gave the assurance on Saturday at the Passing Out Parade of the 78 Regular Recruits Intake of the Nigerian Army.

“Nigeria is currently facing numerous security challenges occasioned by the activities of Boko Haram terrorists, armed bandits, kidnappers and other criminal elements.

“I wish to state that these security challenges will soon come to an end as we will not rest on our oars until the country is safe for all of us,” the Defence chief noted.

The Defence Chief also hailed the recruitment of 5,000 personnel into the Nigerian Army, stressing that it would go a long way to tackle the security challenges in the country.

He then charged the new recruits to be good ambassadors of the army, the military and Nigeria in general.

“Today marks yet another chapter in the history of this great institution (the Depot) and the country in general.

“I am glad that Depot Nigerian Army has continued to evolve innovative ways of improving the standard in the training of personnel for the Nigerian Army.”

“This realistic and result oriented training that is being imparted in young recruits here has been yielding positive results.

“This is evident by the robust fighting spirit displayed by our soldiers in various theatres of operations,” he stressed.
