The outgoing Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu has attributed successes recorded so far in the fight against Insurgency in the North East to doggedness, hard work and determination of troops while urging them to increase momentum in the campaign to flush out the remnants of the terrorists in the region.

The Acting GOC made this remarks on Wednesday, in his farewell address to Officers and Soldiers at the headquarters of the division in Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri, Borno State.
He commended troops for their support and loyalty accorded to him throughout his tenure as the Acting GOC.
“Successes recorded so far is as a result of collective efforts of all of you here. I cannot take this glory alone because I could not have achieved anything without your support and encouragement,” he said.
General Ezugwu also paid glowing tributes to the past GOCs of the division whom he said laid solid foundation at the formative age of the Division.
“We cannot forget the efforts of our past GOCs who laboured to build this division before my assumption of duty as the 6th GOC,” he added.
He also paid tribute to fallen heroes of the war against insurgency and prayed for God mercy upon them and repose of their souls.
“The death of these gallant men and women will not be in vain. We that are still alive must double our efforts towards total elimination of insurgency in the region so that their death will not be in vain,” he stressed.

The GOC also used the opportunity to appreciate the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai for keying into the change mantra of the Federal Government by bringing so much change in the Nigerian Army.
