Chief of Army Staff (CAOS), Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah, on Thursday, reiterated the military’s determination to end insurgency in the country.
Gen. Minimah made this vow at the commissioning of the newly refurbished 81 Division Officers’ Mess built by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), Major General Tamunomeibi Dibi.He said, “Never again will Nigeria walk this path where insurgency and terrorism will come to redefine our oneness and unity as a nation and bring the Nigerian Army to a low level of concern to its own.
“We will continue to push in major operations in the fight against insurgency to a close. It is achievable and we are working towards that.
“It is our wish that we find them (Chibok girls). It’s just one of the camps that were destroyed that we found that number of Nigerians.
“I am sure that as we edge fur-ther into the forest, we will begin to capture more camps. We pray that we rescue more people. Every Nigerian looks forward to this.“Let me commend the efforts of our gallant officers and soldiers who continue to make enormous sacrifices to ensure that Nigeria remains a safe, united and stable country.
“I wish to reassure all Nigerians that the Nigerian Army will continue to do what is in the interest of the nation in pursuant of our constitutional roles.“We will always rise to the oc-casion wherever and whenever duty calls. We will not fail Nigeria and Nigerians.
“May I express our profound thanks to President Goodluck Jonathan for his unwavering sup-port for the Nigerian Army, who has in various ways, particularly his morale boosting visits to the North-east operational theatre, demonstrated unique leadership and solidarity.”
