The Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Ibok Ibas, has said that the Nigerian military has done creditably well in tackling the numerous security challenges that have confronted the nation in recent times.
This is contained in a press statement issued by spokesman of the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA Major Abubakar Abdullahi in Kaduna.
The Naval chief made the remarks at the Regimental Dinner in honour of graduating cadets of the academy’s Regular Course.
Ibas was represented at the event by the Naval Secretary, Rear Admiral Fredric Ugwu.
He noted that the successes achieved, particularly in the fight against insurgency in the North East, was made possible by the selfless commitment of military personnel, some of whom had paid the supreme sacrifice.
Ibas called on the graduating cadets to justify the huge resources expended on their training which was carefully designed to equip them with skills and intellect to deal with the diverse challenges in the course of their career.
