The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 81 Division, Nigerian Army, Maj-Gen Godwin Umelo has charged officers and soldiers of the Division to uphold total discipline.
The GOC made the charge during his maiden familiarisation visit to units and formations under the command.
The Maj-Gen said the visit would afford him the opportunity to determine the state of readiness of units and formations as well as to physically see how troops are fairing in order to bring improvement within available resources.
He assured the troops that the Chief of Army Staff would continue to improve on efforts that will make the troops function optimally. He said the army authority is very much aware of the accommodation challenges being faced by the troops and that very soon they will smile.
The GOC, notwithstanding, warned the troops to stay out of illegal duties or anything that would negate the vision of the COAS which is “To have professional and responsive Army in the discharge of its constitutional roles”.
The GOC also paid a courtesy call on the Seme Border Acting Area Comptroller of Customs CD Wada and the Comptroller of Immigration Seme Border Command BO Zipamor.
Umelo lauded the cordial relationship and synergy offered by the sister services to the military and informed them that his office is opened for any assistance from the Army.
The Maj-General also paid homage to His Royal Majesty the De Wheno Aholu Manu Toyi 1, the Akran of Badagry Kingdom whom he thanked for his fatherly efforts at ensuring harmonious relationship between the military and his subjects, while further wished him long life and prosperity.
It would be recalled that the GOC assumed command on July 22 this year and as customary in the military needed to visit formations and units to see things physically in order to improve of the state of readiness of units and formations under command.Follow us on social media
