    …Ajunwa tours units and formations under command

    The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 81 Division Nigerian Army (NA) Major General Obinna Ajunwa has charged officers and soldiers of 9 Brigade to uphold total discipline in the course of discharging their duties.

    The GOC gave the charge during his maiden familiarization visit to the 9 Brigade Nigerian Army to assess the state of readiness of the formation.

    Major General Ajunwa who was briefed by the Commander 9 Brigade Brigadier General Isangubong Akpaumontia noted that he came to physically see how the troops are faring to bring improvement within available resources.

    The GOC further assured the troops that the Chief of Army Staff would continue to improve on efforts that will make the troops function optimally, stressing that the authority was very much aware of the accommodation challenges being faced by the troops and that very soon they would smile.

    He however, warned the troops to stay out of illegal duties given the tempting environment or anything that would negate the vision of the COAS which is to have “a professional Nigerian Army Ready to accomplish assigned missions within a joint environment in defense of Nigeria”.

    Ajunwa informed the troops that they are about to enter a very difficult period because of the forthcoming general election. Consequently, they will be working with the Nigeria Police and other security agencies.

    He added that they should endeavor to conduct themselves professionally. Furthermore, they should not hesitate to report any challenge to the higher authority

    The highlight of the visit included a brief by the Commander 9 Brigade, a guided tour of the Army Cantonment Ikeja, interaction with members of the Nigerian Army Officers Wives Association, planting of tree, by the GOC, and address to troops on the parade ground. It would be recalled that the GOC assumed command on 19 August 2022 and as customary in the military, he has been visiting units and formations to see things physically to improve the state of readiness of the units and formations under the command.
