Written by News Desk on November 7, 2023
The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, is calling on commanders and troops of the Nigerian Army not to let the nation down in the ongoing efforts to quell emerging security challenges facing the country.
The CDS charged the troops to support the lead agency in the forthcoming off-cycle elections in Kogi, Imo as well as Bayelsa and strictly adhere to the codes of conduct guiding troops’ roles during polls.
The defence chief gave the charge after he was briefed on operational engagements of troops in various theatres of operations in the country at the Army Headquarters Operations Centre, during a visit to Army headquarters in Abuja.
He commends the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, principal staff officers, field commanders and troops for their dedication and sacrifice.
This is as he admonished commanders at all levels to be focused, committed and professional in steering the affairs of their various commands to expedite the restoration of peace and stability in the country.
