All damaged and grounded equipment and platforms in theatres of operation are to be fixed to enhance operational capabilities of troops involved in the counter-insurgency operations, the Nigerian Army has hinted.

Approval has been given for the procurement of spare parts for the repairs.

Attahiru, who spoke at the Chief of Army Staff first Quarter Conference and Nigerian Army Operations Retreat, at the Army Headquarters Command Officers’ Mess, Abuja, also promised improved welfare for troops in the frontline.

According to him, “I want to assure you that I am determined in rebuilding the fighting skills, capacity, confidence and morale of our troops across the various theatres of operations.
“In order to achieve this, my top priorities for the second and third quarters of the year would be training.

“I will ensure that through functional training, officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army are equipped with the right competences and skills to effectively undertake missions in addition to developing special operations forces.

“This would be closely followed by procurement that ensures appropriate kitting and provision of protective gear, weapons, equipment and platforms.”
