imageChief of Army Staff, Lt-General Kenneth Minimah, has assured Nigerians that the Nigerian Army will overcome the current security challenges facing the country.

The Army boss gave the assurance while speaking at the Nigerian Army Corps and School of Supply and Transport, Benin City during the Commissioning of its remodelled Officers Mess, facilitated by the state Government.

Minimah said terrorism and other violent crimes were strange to the nation and will be defeated in the offing.

His words, “Let me reassure Nigerians that the current security challenges and other security challenges bedeviling the country are surmountable and will soon become a thing of the past. The Nigeria Army will not relent until all forms of terrorism and criminal activities are driven out of our shores. We cannot, we must not and we will not fail the nation.

“At this point, I want to thank the President, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for his untiring support of the Nigerian Army and the armed forces as a whole. I equally thank our political leaders in all levels of Government for their solidarity of the Nigerian Army, particularly the Governor and people of Edo state.” He noted.

The Chief of Army Staff said, “I want to thank the Governor and the people of Edo state, not only for this project, but for other interventions in the Nigerian Army barracks in Edo state. I recall that just last June, Edo state Government provided a commercial borehole and a 500KVA generator for Ekenhuan Barracks.

“This gesture and many other supports by Edo state Government is deeply appreciated and worthy of every level of commendation. I call on other state Governments to take a cue from the Edo state Government and support our troops to confront the current security challenges bedeviling our country.”
In a welcome address, Major General Nienge commended Governor Adams Oshiomhole for his interest in officers and men of the Nigerian Army in Edo state.”
