TRADOC NA has organized a research & dev. conference & workshop for NA schools.

The Nigerian Army, as a means of tackling the security issues currently facing the Nigerian society, has renewed its commitment towards efficient research and development. The reiteration was made at the opening of the 2022 Research and Development Conference and Curriculum Harmonization Workshop for Nigerian Army Schools on Monday, September 5, 2022, by The Chief of Training (Army), Major General Abdulsalam Ibrahim; a program which was organized by the Nigerian Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).

Represented by the Deputy Chief of Training, Major General Oluyemi Olatoye, Major General Ibrahim stated that the army had been putting more effort into research and development in order to aid the enhancement of its operational efficiency. The workshop is said to bridge gaps in the research and development drive of the Nigerian Army, including its curriculum. Thus, at the end of the workshop, there should be an attainment of the set objectives for the betterment of the Nigerian Army.

TRADOC NA provides probable solutions to operational challenges of the NA.

The Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Nigerian Army (NA) was established in 1981 to form a higher think tank of the Nigerian Army. The Command, known as the alternate Nigerian Army Headquarters, gives advice, ideas, and likely solutions to training and operational challenges of the Nigerian Army. It also spontaneously functions as a corps Headquarters for the coordination, direction, and control of the operational exigencies of the divisions, at any time numerous divisions are simultaneously committed in the field.

The TRADOC Nigerian Army also superintends and supports military training to guarantee quality and relevance and coordination of research and development efforts of the Nigerian Army corps and schools. In addition, ensuring the professional development of the army personnel, it updates and makes available training manuals, examination modules, and makes preparations and conductions of promotion examinations for the personnel. Above all, TRADOC NA works at making the NA ready in accordance with other arms and services for success in land components, joint and combined warfare.

The workshop is likely to prepare the NA to address security issues.

His statements depict that an opportunity like this workshop is likely to yield sound suggestions that would bridge the gaps in the curriculum. Expressing delight concerning the venturing of TRADOC Nigerian Army into constructive engagements with relevant stakeholders towards the empowerment of the capacity of the army’s personnel, especially in aspects of training, research and development, and curriculum harmonization, with hope that the engagements produce actionable recommendations which will in turn prepare the Nigerian army to tackle contemporary security issues.

TRADOC received more commendations from the Chief of training, in person of the Deputy Chief of training, for working alongside with the vision of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya, of building a “Professional Nigerian Army Ready to Accomplish Assigned Missions within a Joint Environment in the Defense of Nigeria.” Also, the Commander of TRADOC, Major General Steven Olabanji, affirmed that the Nigerian Army has not ceased to embrace development, given the current security challenges of the country.

Coping with Nigerian security issues requires development and research.

The commander, also represented by the Chief of Training, TRADOC, Major General JAL Jimoh, mentioned that the manifestation of the evolving dynamics is visible in the areas of tactics, techniques and procedures, personnel, equipment and material. In his words, coping with the contemporary security challenges in the country requires consistency in the research and development that is available in the field of training and doctrine. This will help in evolving existing operation techniques and logistics procedures, equipment modification, training curricula, methodologies, among others.

To be able to address the present threats to the nation’s security, the country must maintain a consistent approach to the research and development that is carried out in the field of military doctrine and instruction.

When multiple divisions are simultaneously committed in the field, it also works spontaneously as a corps headquarters for the coordination, direction, and control of the operational exigencies of the divisions. This occurs whenever there are multiple divisions working together in the field.

This will help in the evolution of existing operating techniques and logistical procedures, as well as the adjustment of equipment, training curricula, and methodology, among other things.

All this TRADOC NA has organized a research & dev. conference & workshop for NA schools should be done secretly. whatever plan or committee set up should not be known to people. If u want to catch a thief u don’t have let him know your plans talk less of telling him that you have a plan of catching them. FG should stop announcing plans or the committee. Action speaks louder than words

This is a welcome development by the Nigerian Army anything to help with insecurities we are facing right now by training and doing more research to equip our military personnel.

I only hope the National Assembly are right here. Research and development will go a long way in solving insecurity but it’s not the main solution. Alleviation of poverty and provision of employment opportunities will actually do more.

These insecurity has lingered for too long. Kudos to Nigerian Army, they been doing a good job all along. Condolences to our fallen heroes as well. However, the government keep investing so much into combating these insecurity, yet no significant positive difference. Hopefully this new approach be a success.
