He said this during a meeting with members of the Nigerian Legion, Zamfara state chapter in Gusau, the state capital, on Wednesday.

The COAS, who was represented by Abdul Khalifa Ibrahim, deputy director, retired officers at the Nigerian Army Directorate of Veteran Affairs (NADVA), army headquarters, commended the veterans for their commitment and loyalty to the Nigerian Army and the nation despite having retired from active service.

This, he said, was in line with the COAS policy of ensuring quality welfare for troops, both serving and retired.

Speaking at the event, the Chairman, Nigerian Legion, Zamfara state chapter, Abdullahi Umar thanked the COAS for the kind gesture, noting that the visit was the first of its kind.

He assured the COAS that Nigerian Army veterans under the aegis of Nigerian Legion, Zamfara state chapter, would continue to play a key role in enabling proactive security at the grassroots in the state.

Speaking on behalf of the COAS, Ibrahim urged the Legionnaires to remain steadfast in fostering peace in the state.

According to him “the successes so far achieved in ongoing operations can be attributed to the collective effort of all stakeholders in zamfara State,” emphasizing that “achieving lasting peace in the state is a task for all which must be done”.
