President Bola Tinubu has been scheduled to attend the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference as a Special Guest of Honour.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Army Spokesperson, Brigadier General Onyenma Nwachukwu.
Nwachukwu noted that the week-long annual event themed “Personnel Motivation for Effective Operational Performance in a Joint Environment” is important in the calendar of the Nigerian Army, due to its significance to National security, peace, and stability.
According to him, the conference is scheduled for December 10 to 16, at Command Guest House, Maiduguri, Borno State.
He said: “It offers the Nigerian Army an avenue to take stock, evaluate and comprehensively review ongoing operational engagements of the NA in all theatres of operations across the six geo-political zones within the year, among other key agenda.
“This will provide the Nigerian Army with an in-depth insight to make far-reaching decisions that will be result-oriented towards achieving its set objective of addressing multifaceted security challenges in the country.
“The Conference would also create an opportunity for the COAS to have face-to-face interaction with the General Officers Commanding, Field Commanders and other senior officers to provide requisite guidance on enhancing Nigerian Army operations and activities. The conference will be declared open on Monday 11 December 2023.”
The Army Spokesperson disclosed that a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika (rtd), would present a paper titled “Whole of Society Approach and Military Operations in Nigeria”.
“There shall be commissioning of Nigerian Army Civil Military Cooperation projects aimed at bringing succour to some communities in Borno State,” Nwanchukwu said.
