Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru, has stated that despite current challenges of insecurity, the Nigerian Army under his leadership will be better repositioned and reformed for optimal efficiency and delivery of desired results.

The Army Chief stated this at the 2 Division auditorium, Adekunle Fajuyi Cantonment, Ibadan, on the occasion of First Senior Command and Leadership Seminar for Brigade Commanders and General Officers Commanding.

General Attahiru said that the Army would be better under his current leadership through training and retraining in order to attain the anticipated results capable of checkmating the challenges currently being faced by the country.

He acknowledged that the country is facing formidable and unprecedented attacks from non state actors and security threats that are unstructured.

General Attahiru, therefore, charged the General Officers Commanding and Brigade Commanders to devise multidimensional, multidisciplinary and multifaceted approaches to defeat all adversaries and challenges.

The Chief of Army Staff reemphasized that the Nigerian Army under his watch would do things differently towards better outcome.

According to him, mechanisms are already in motion to reinvigorate training and to effectively plan and conduct operations, drawing lessons from previous operations.
