The Nigerian Defence Academy ‘s commandant, Maj.-Gen Ibrahim Yusuf, claims that the military will soon put an end to insurgency, banditry, abduction, and other kinds of instability in the country.
On Tuesday, Mr Yusuf stated this at the current ‘Exercise Camp Highland’ for the 68 Regular Army Cadet Courses. The drill is taking place at Shere Hills, outside Jos, at the Leadership and Training Centre.
Regular training and retraining of officers and men, according to the commandant, will better prepare them to combat all forms of instability in the country.
“As you all know, The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) since 1964 has been saddled with the responsibility to train cadets into being officers of the armed forces,” he said. “This training is designed to build the confidence of the cadets to be able to face complex security challenges that we see in all environment(s) where the military is involved in operations.”
He believed that the training would improve the cadets’ ability to combat rebels, bandits, kidnappers, and unidentified shooters.
“So, it simply means that military will soon end all the security challenges that are facing Nigeria,” he affirmed.
The commandant, who was pleased with the level of training, said it will improve the cadets’ confidence, courage, and leadership abilities.
Mr Yusuf urged Nigerians to back the military and other security forces in their efforts to keep Nigerians safe.
