The Chief of Army Staff, Lt-General Kenneth Minimah, on Friday in Zaria, Kaduna State, said the Nigerian Army has reviewed the training curriculum of the Depot, Nigerian Army, to effectively tackle insurgency in the Northeast.
He made this known during the Passing Out Parade (POP) of the 71 Regular Recruits Intake of the Depot, Nigerian Army, which took place at the parade ground of the Chindit Barracks, Zaria.
The COAS, who was the Reviewing Officer of the POP, said: “Your training curriculum was reviewed taking into cognizance lessons learned in the ongoing operations, particularly in the Northeastern part of our country. Apart from improvement in training, we also ensured that you were adequately kitted and provided with necessary logistics before and during your training.
On forthcoming elections, Minimah said: “As you are all aware, this is an election year, I therefore urge you to read and understand the code of conduct for military personnel during elections. You must remain apolitical at all times. To achieve this, you are expected to discharge your duties diligently, professionally and patriotically”.
