COAS pledges befitting accommodation for Army personnel

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, on Thursday inaugurated the newly completed official residences of Regimental Sergeant Majors (RSMs) of 8 Division, Sokoto; with pledge to provide more befitting accommodation for Army personnel.

 

Yahaya inaugurated the two residences at Giginya Barracks, Sokoto, which were constructed to accommodate RSMs of 8 Division and those of Garrison command.

 

The COAS was in Sokoto State, as part of his official visit to evaluate the successes of various operations in troubled areas of the country.

 

Yahaya pledged proper engagement to provide more befitting accommodation for Army personnel across the country.

 

“As you can witness, we have in the past two days engaged in various official activities toward ensuring peace and best service conditions for our Army personnel.

 

“Part of such activities was the ground-breaking of the new proposed Nigerian Army Forward Operation Base in Isa Local Government Area and the new accommodation for personnel in Zuru, Kebbi State.

 

“Today we commission a first-class befitting accommodation for the RSMs, as part of our welfare agenda for the personnel,” he said.

Yahaya added that the gesture was in recognition of RSMs in the Nigerian Army and also to boost their morale to serve the force better.

 

Earlier, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 8 Division, Sokoto, Maj.-Gen. Uwem Bassey, thanked the COAS for the visit to the state.

 

Bassey promised to continue to give more commitment of ensuring quality welfare of the personnel, as directed by the COAS.
