Training: CDS inaugurates 15 troops-carrying vehicles at NDA


The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Lucky Irabor, on Thursday inaugurated 15 troops-carrying vehicles at the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna, in a bid to enhance the training of Cadets.

Irabor told newsmen shortly after inaugurating the vehicles, that the duty of the NDA was to train Nigerian Officers manpower.

He also said that the training involved movement of both men and equipment from one point to the other, which made the inaugurated vehicles very important.

“These vehicles are intended to close that gap and boost what is available in the academy. The vehicles are new, therefore will add shape to training content of the cadets,” he said.

Irabor explained that during training, the cadets would know how movement of troops in the field looked like.

He, however, said that the cadets had abinitio got acquainted with the movement of troops and resources required.

Speaking on his recent visit to Maiduguri, where he transited through Kaduna for the inauguration of the vehicles, the CDS said that peace and order had substantially returned to the city.

“Anyone visiting Maiduguri will not know that it was once dreaded and deserted, because the city is now bubbling with life and socio-economic activities,” he said.

He, however, noted that insecurity in the state had not been completely wiped out, adding that it accounted for why the military were still there.

He said his visit was to encourage and commend the troops, by conveying the words of the President, Mohammadu Buhari, that he was satisfied with their contributions.

Irabor added that President Buhari had admonished Nigerians to be proud of the type of Armed Forces they had.

He thanked Buhari for the support always accorded the Armed Forces.
