Army Chief Pledges Stronger Partnership With Nigerians

The Nigerian Army, NA, has pledged to strengthen its partnership with Nigerians in securing the nation.

The Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya made the pledge when he paid homage to the Otaru ( Monarch) of Auchi Sacred Kingdom, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Aliru Momoh, Ikelebe III in Auchi, Edo State Southern Nigeria.

General Yahaya appreciated the Monarch’s support for the Army and vowed to continue to leverage on partnership with critical stakeholders for the sustenance of peace and security.

While welcoming the COAS to his palace, Alhaji Momoh assured the COAS of the continuous support of his kingdom to the NA, in pursuit of its constitutional mandate.

He prayed for divine guidance for the nation, the COAS and the NA in all its engagements.

While in Auchi, the COAS commissioned the newly constructed Nigerian Army School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (NASEME) Multipurpose Hall and the student officers’ hostel of the school.

He later declared the maiden Nigerian Army Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (NAEME) Research and Development Seminar 2022 open.

General Yahaya commended the Corps for the maintenance of the equipment, despite challenges associated with sourcing of spares.

He equally extolled the ongoing efforts by the corps to locally produce Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher tubes, Anti-Aircraft guns, as well as fabrication of spare parts for the NA.
