In response to the current state of Nigeria’s security sector, which has been ravaged by several criminal groups, unknown gunmen, terrorists and other external aggression, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Army Public Relations, affirms that the Nigerian army is resolute to assess its various operations across the country. General Nwachukwu, who disclosed this at the briefing report on the fourth quarter Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Conference, noted that the main aim is to uncover terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, separatist groups, and other criminal groups terrorizing the country’s peace.

He said that the threats and phenomena bedeviling the country’s security are ever-changing; therefore, the government must be proactive in reassessing its operational plans. General Nwachukwu has stated that the upcoming conference, titled “Building a Professional Nigerian Army for the 21st Century Security Environment, will give room to reassess the Nigerian Army administrative affairs as well as evaluate and comprehensively assess the army’s ongoing operational engagements in all theatres of operations across the six geo-political zones within the year.

Army’s contribution to internal challenges depicts its commitment.

The Brigadier General claims that this would allow the Nigerian Army to see the big picture and arrive at moral judgements that will propel them closer to the ultimate objective of tackling Nigeria’s complex security issues. Also, at the conference, the Chief of Army Staff will be chanced to discuss in person with all the General Officers Commanding, field commanders, and other senior officers how to devise strategic ways and means through which the Nigerian army would continue to enhance national security.

General Nwachukwu asserts that the army’s contribution to the security challenges faced in the country, internally over the years, depicts the army troops’ ardor and commitment to upholding the country’s dignity and sovereignty over the external threat. In addition, he also emphasized the importance of the army’s adherence to the virtues of valor, dexterity, professionalism, and unwavering allegiance to formal authority. He attributed the credit of the accomplishments to the purposeful leadership drive of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya (CFR).

Significant achievement of the Nigerian army troops.

He further claims that the army has made great strides under the direction and transformational lead of the Chief of Army Staff, including the continuing elimination of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists in the Northeast and the apprehension of high-profile terrorists. Along with this, terrorists and their families are turning themselves in by the hundreds. Together with the sister services, law-abiding citizens, other security agencies, and the member states, Nigerian army forces have also upheld this achievement with significant accomplishments recorded.

General Nwachukwu, when speaking about the upcoming conference that is scheduled to commence on December 4, explains that former Chief of Defense Staff, Gen. Martin Luther Agwai (retired), will deliver a lecture titled “Proliferation of Regional/State Security Outfits in Nigeria: Challenges and Prospects” as part of the opening ceremony. Following that, on December 6, 2022, the Nigerian Army will host a series of commissioning ceremonies for Civil-Military Cooperation projects in communities around Sokoto State.

The event will address different operations of the Nigerian army.

In addition, the conference will discuss the choices made at the Chief of Army Staff’s third-quarter conference. From the 7th to the 8th of December, a series of briefings and other updates about the different operations of the Nigerian army will be presented and voted upon. Also, the Nigerian army will seize the opportunity of this platform to acknowledge and express its gratitude to distinguished Nigerians who have contributed significantly to the success of Nigerian army operations and activities.
