The Nigerian Army says it will not relent in providing support for the rehabilitation and construction of new facilities for troops across the country.

Taoreed Lagbaja, chief of army staff (COAS), spoke on Tuesday during the 2023 merit awards of the headquarters, training, and doctrine command (TRADOC), in Minna, the Niger state capital.

Lagbaja who was represented by Sani Mohammed, chief of training, at Nigerian army headquarters, said supporting the rehabilitation and building of new facilities would enable troops to execute their duties effectively.

The COAS flagged off the rehabilitated and recently constructed quarters for senior officers in the cantonment.


He said the accommodation for officers and other officials will soon be completed, adding that “I look forward to inaugurating them soon”.

“When I arrived at the cantonment this morning, I went round and inaugurated some projects,” NAN quoted Lagbaja as saying.

“I congratulate commander TRADOC for completing the projects and also urge you all to ensure that they are properly maintained.


“The Nigerian army will continue to provide support for the renovation of our existing facilities and construction of new ones in various cantonments and establishments.”

Commenting on the awards, the army chief said it would motivate troops to prepare optimally for future examinations.

“This merit award will encourage junior commanders to strive for excellence to improve professionalism, which aligns with my command philosophy to transform the Nigerian Army into a well-trained, equipped and highly motivated force toward achieving our constitutional responsibilities within a joint environment,” he said.

He added that the award would recognise excellence and hard work, and also enhance productive competition among military schools in the country.
