Nigerian Army Begins Recruitment Of 9,000 Personnel


The Nigeria Army has commenced massive recruitment to tackle the security challenges in the country.

Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Azubuike Ihejirika who disclosed this while opening a five day seminar organised by the Army’s Department of Civil Military Affairs in Ibadan said nine thousand persons will be recruited in the Army various training institutions.

Ihejirika who was represented by Major General John Ewansiha said the military aims at defeating insurgents as well as protecting law abiding citizens.

He said, “I have commenced the recruitment of 9,000 persons in our various training institutions.’’


Ihejirika reiterated the intention of the army to train and retrain its officers  in order to meet the security challenge of the country.
 

“Indeed,  the Nigerian army is currently occupied with domestic challenges in  several parts of the country, especially in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa  States’’, he said.
 

The Chief of Civil-Military Affairs, Maj. Gen.  Bola Koleoso, said the seminar was part of the quests to resolve the  crisis currently facing the nation.
 

“As we all know, the civil  society organisations stand for the defence of human rights everywhere  as well as in crisis situations.
 

“The military aims at defeating insurgents as well as protecting law-abiding citizens’’, he said.
 

Gov.  Abiola Ajimobi, who was the guest of honour, stressed the need for  constant engagement and discussion between the civil and military  publics.
 

“The modus operandi of the military is force; obedience  to order and immediacy of that obedience. The modus operandi of the  civil public is persuasion and constant engagement, which takes time“,  he said.
 

Ajimobi said the task of such relationship should thus be  how to bring the two publics together to pursue same agenda for the  democratic vision of the nation.
 

 “The Nigerian civil public cannot afford to stand aloof from the military.
 

“Since independence, the military has fought wars toward the sustenance of Nigeria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
 

“It has lost thousands of its men who are martyrs of the peace and nationhood we enjoy today.
 

“We cannot but support the military in its quest to protect the nation and her territorial borders’’, the governor said.
 

The  theme of the seminar is: “Consolidating Civil Society  Organisations/Military Relations for Improved National Security.’’
