A retired Permanent Secretary in Zamfara, Alhaji Ahmad Gummi, has urged Nigerians to continue to support the Nigerian Army in its efforts to tackle the country’s security challenges.
Gummi said the call was imperative towards consolidating the tangible gains made by the Army in its ongoing security operations across the country.
He said that such laudable achievements were recorded under the leadership of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruku Yahaya.
“There is the need for Nigerians to sustain their patriotic support and cooperation to the Army and other security agencies.
“They are currently doing a very good job trying tirelessly across the country, all in the bid to restore normalcy.
“This is with the view to ensuring that socioeconomic activities bounce back across Nigeria as well as ginger up the economy of the nation,” he said.
Gummi stressed the need for the Army to be provided with all the requisite modern equipment, adequate funds, arms and ammunitons to combat insurgency and security breaches.
He said that the Army requires all the moral, financial and psychological support from both the government and the citizens.
Such support, he noted, is key to making the officers and men of the Army to be more committed and dedicated to their constitutional duties.
“This will certainly make them to be more hard working, diligent and effective in defending the territorial integrity of the country, as well as other ongoing internal security operations,” he added.
Gummi further called for prayers for peace, stability and sustainable development in the country. (NAN
