The Nigerian Army has promised to engage retired senior military officers to as ways to enhance and overcome the security challenges faced in the country.
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Leo Iraboh, while speaking at one-day interactive session with retired senior military officers from the North East zone, held at the 23 Armoured Brigade, on Tuesday, in Yola, explained that the objective of the parley was to engage retired senior colleagues to cross to exchange ideas on how best to overcome the insecurity situation in the country.
He further explained, “It is part of the reasons I am here with my team: to interact with our retired senior colleagues, to look for holistic solutions about how to bring to an end the insecurity challenges in the region.”
The Chief of Defence Staff believed that as they interact and engage the retired Senior military officers, they would be ready to open up to them in areas that will enhance security and to tell them areas of their mistakes and for them to make corrections.
Gen. Leo Iraboh explained that among the cardinal objectives of the parley was the need to come up with solutions, saying that security is everybody’s business.
He believed that the one-day meeting was an opportunity by extension to reach out to the good people of the north east region, to appreciate them for the support given to the Nigeria military and ask them to give more for the sustenance of peace.
Iraboh is of the belief that solutions to the lingering security challenges in the region lie right with the north east people.
He believed that principally, the solution to the North East problem would be largely dependent on the inputs of those who come from the region.
The Chief of Defence Staff also of the belief that in the coming days, security would improve and be better in the region and Nigeria at large.
He stated that on the recent attack on the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) Kaduna, Irabor stressed that the incident is more of an armed robbery, rather than from banditry.
Earlier, in his remarks, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Alli, GOC, 3 Division, noted that among the significance of the interactive session was the meeting with men of proven integrity and experience that come from the region to discuss on the best forward of the security situation.
He said no one is happy with the current situation, saying that the interactive session is for them to look at each other to speak on the exact issues.
“Because, we believe there are issues that we have not actually viewed in the manner you look at it,” he added.
He stated that being men of proven integrity and experience, the retired military officers have the desire and will to turn around the fortunes of the zone, where everyone of them will be happy.
Alli was represented by Brig.-Gen. Aminu Garba, Commander, 23 Armoured Brigade, Yola.
