Insecurity: We are recording giant strides in defeating detractors, says army chief



Faruk Yahaya, chief of army staff, has advised troops of sector 2, joint task force, north-east operation Hadin Kai, to remain committed to tackling security challenges.


He spoke on Monday while addressing the troops during a Christmas luncheon in Damaturu.


Yahaya, who said Nigerians appreciate the sacrifices of the army personnel, also directed them to remain professional as the country prepares for the 2023 elections.


“I implore you to maintain the spirit of patriotism and continue to give your best in the discharge of assigned duties and responsibilities,” he said.


 “We must not rest on our oars as it is pleasing to note that we are recording giant strides in defeating all detractors towards bringing lasting peace to our fatherland.


“Our collective sacrifices in the various theatres of operations are well appreciated by well-meaning Nigerians, both home and abroad, as well as allies of Nigeria worldwide.”


Represented by Koko Isoni, the sector’s commander, Yahaya also commended the troops for their efforts.


 “I wish to express my sincere gratitude to God for his mercies, guidance, and protection over us while discharging our constitutional roles to our dear country, Nigeria,” he said.


“Let me start by using this opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate all officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army for their forthrightness and indefatigable commitment towards defeating insecurity in our beloved country.”


While paying tribute to personnel who have died in service, he added that the army remains committed to providing support for the families of the affected officers.


“Our hearts and thoughts are always with their families. I pray that Almighty God will continue to grant them eternal rest,” he said.


 “Rest assured that the Nigerian Army, under my leadership, remains committed to providing quality welfare for their families and preserving the memories of their uncommon sacrifices.


“The least we can give back is to remain committed, determined, and focused towards defeating all adversaries in every nook and cranny of our great country, in line with the directives of Mr President.”
