The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.- Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, on Monday, assured that the army and other security agencies would not fail in addressing the current security challenges in the country.
Lagbaja gave the assurance when he inaugurated the newly-constructed Headquarters of 8 Division Nigerian Army Sokoto.
“I must admit that the nation has faced some security challenges along the way, but the troops have been responding to these challenges across the country.
“We will continue to do all within our power to combat every security challenge confronting the country and meet the expectations of the country in providing a secure environment for economic activities to thrive,” he added.
He called on Nigerians to support the troops with actionable information in their battle against criminals in the country.
Lagbaja said that the construction of army formations was to bring the troops closer to the people for effective and timely response to any security threat.
He added that the new barracks would enhance regimentation and coordination of responses to security challenges.
