Infantry remains nucleus of military operations – Buratai

Published

on

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has described the Nigerian Army School of Infantry (NASI) as the nucleus of military operations and important in achieving the training mandate of the army.

 

Buratai spoke on Saturday at the ground breaking ceremony for the building of the headquarters of the school at Jaji Cantonment in Kaduna.

 

He said the school had gone beyond its primary role of churning out trainees of infantry courses to engage in wide range of tasks central to the accomplishment of the army’s roles, especially the fight against terrorism.

 

“It is therefore pertinent the Nigerian Army provides befitting structures and conducive environment for the officers and soldiers, who are the forefront of achieving these roles

 

“I am pleased to note that the hitherto notion being held by officers and soldiers that Jaji is a punishment ground has become a thing of the past”, he said.

 

According to him, over the past two years, attempts have been made at improving the living, learning and training conditions in the school.

 

The sum of N17.5 million was realised at the ceremony, ROYAL NEWS gathered.

While Commander, Infantry Corps and Corps Commander Engineer donated N4 million each, the General Officers Commanding 1, 2, 6 and 82 Divisions of the Nigerian Army donated N3 million, N3.5 million, N4 million and N3 million, respectively.
