Published

on

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Taoreed Abiodun Lagbaja, has said that the training of officers and men of the Nigerian Armed Forces is paramount to his administration.…CONTINUE READING

Gen. Lagbaja stated this at the Graduation Ceremony of Course 21/23 of the Nigerian Army College of Logistics And Management, Ojo, Lagos on Saturday.

The COAS, who was ably represented by the Corps Commander Ordnance, Major General Jonathan Ugwuoke, where he was the Special Guest of honour, said that the training was coming at a time when the force wanted to reposition the college to train many junior and middle cadre officers.

“I am aware that the graduating students, who were assembled in July 2023, comprise 29 Nigerian Army officers and one officer from Gambia. I want to congratulate the officer from the Gambian Army as the completion will further cement the relationship between the Nigerian government and the government of Gambia.

“We want to increase the strength of army officers as this is crucial to the success of our military operations. We want to increase the number of officers that are likely to occupy the position of the Deputy Chief of Staff Logistics.

“I therefore urge the College to continue to make the school great and they should not rest on their oars. The issue of training is aptly captured in my vision for the Nigerian army to train highly motivated officers to perform their duties within the confines of the law.

“I am happy with the level of success recorded by the troops involved in various operations in the country; this is a product of our constant training programmes. I urge the college to concentrate on training our officers to be able to fight insecurity in the country. I am aware of your challenges, I am promising that these will be addressed within the limited available resources,” he said.

The COAS promised that in no time, the issue of inadequate offices and accommodation in the college would soon be a thing of the past.

He then thanked the President of Nigeria and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his support for the Nigerian Army.

Earlier in his welcome address, the Acting Commandant of the College, Brigadier General Wisdom Etuk, said that the presence of Corps Commanders, members of the College Governing Board and past commandants of the college is an indication of how they love the college.

Etuk described the event as a milestone from June 2003, when the College was established, saying that the college has since been offering adequate training to officers.

“Our scope was recently expanded to handle medium and middle cadre officers. We will continue to do the task. The graduands comprise 30 officers assembled in July this year and they are all graduating today. We have a trainee from Gambia. It has been 19 weeks of thorough training.

“We thank the Chief of Army Staff for his unflinching support for the college. We are undergoing some infrastructure development that will help us sustain our world-class professional services.

“I assure you that the students have been adequately equipped for the job. I want to implore the students to demonstrate a high degree of competence in the job and I wish them the best in their careers. I thank their spouses for keeping the home front in their absence,” he said.

The Commandant used the opportunity to thank the Almighty God and the Chief of Army Staff for his untiring support for the college as well as all his predecessors for laying a solid foundation for the college.

Highlights of Logistics Management Course 21/23 were given by the Acting Deputy Commandant/Director of Studies of the College, Brigadier General J.B Manjang, who reiterated that the 30 students, comprising Lt. Colonels and Majors were assembled on July 28, 2023, and that they were all graduating with a foreign student, Major Lamin Njie from Gambia.

“They undertook Computer and English Language proficiency tests and they all passed. Training started on July 30 and they were taken on logistics, logistics function, Nigerian Army Maintenance, logistics support and others.

“The courses were taken by military officers and some other lecturers. They were taken on computer training, public speaking and other training with the facilities. There was a training programme tour in Edo State on how civil/military partnership could yield civilian/military partnership in Edo State.

“They were exposed to support areas in the field. There was an exercise in Papalanto in Ogun State. They had industrial attachment in organisations in Lagos and Ogun States, the first of its kind in the school,” he said.

He added that the students were exposed to a Conflict Management and Resolution workshop and that there was an exercise livewire from September 18 to 21, 2023 in the Ajilete area of Ogun State.

Certificates were presented to the students by the representatives of the Special Guest of Honour.
