Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya, on Wednesday warned men of the Nigerian Army against indolence and unwholesome attitude, saying that officers found wanting would be sanctioned accordingly.

Gen Yahaya gave the warning while commissioning a building block of newly constructed 30 units of one bedroom flat for soldiers at Camp Tukur Buratai Barracks , Yenagoa.

The COAS, who said the project was initiated during his maiden visit in July 2021 to address the dearth of accommodation in the Brigade, also assured troops of his commitment to improve the welfare of officers by uplifting their standard of living as well as that of their families in Nigerian Army formations and units.

He stressed that it is in fulfilment of one of his pillars of command to provide efficient administration for the Nigerian Army and urged the troops to reciprocate the gesture by diligently discharging their responsibilities.

Gen Yahaya, who pointed out that the activities of oil thieves and illegal oil bunkers are bleeding the nation’s economy, charged the troops to upscale their operational activities to eradicate oil theft and pipeline vandalism in their Area of Responsibility (AOR), in order to create requisite enabling environment for legitimate economic activities to thrive.

While handing over of keys to the beneficiaries of the new accommodation, Gen Yahaya assured troops of his resolve to continue to reward competence and hard work.
