The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has urged every Combat Unit in the Nigerian Army to remain focused until insurgency in the North-East is crushed.
Lieutenant Buratai gave the advice while declaring close, the three-day Combat Support Arms Training Week 2016, held at Maimalari Barracks in Maiduguri.
He also advised the units to explore the best ways of carrying out their roles by emphasizing synergy so as to maximize scarce resources.
Lieutenant Buratai noted that the battle against insurgency in the North-East had thrown up a lot of challenges, but expressed satisfaction that the efforts were yielding positive results.
He described the theme of the training, Countering Asymmetric Warfare in the 21st Century: The role of the Combat Support Arms, as apt, pointing out that it was in line with his vision for a professionally trained army for effective discharge of its constitutional roles.
