Deployment of logistics: We will protect national assets in N-Delta – Army chief Buratai



Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, says the security challenges facing Nigeria have made the  development of middle cadre officers on the rudiments of logistics crucial.

He spoke at the Logistics Staff Course (LSC) 13/2016 graduation ceremony of the Nigerian Army College of Logistics (NACOL) in Lagos where he was special guest of honour.

The COAS, who was represented by the Chief of Logistic,s Army Headquarters, Major General Patrick AT Akem, noted that in the past decade Nigerian Army operations had witnessed dramatic changes from conventional to asymmetric warfare, thereby necessitating the development of competent logisticians to meet the reality on ground, adding that one of the ways to meet the reality was to train “our officers on modern concepts and techniques in the field of logistics” which, he said, would enable the Army to acquire the requisite skills for sound logistic support at all levels.

He added  that the numerous achievements of NACOL with respect to training and various research inputs into the Nigerian Army policies, despite its numerous challenges, were commendable.
