The Nigerian Army has again called for an improved welfare package for its officers and men of the command to boost their surveillance in its quest to making the nation a crime free one.
General Officer Commanding, 82 Division, Nigerian Army, Major General Oluwaseun Oshinowo made the call in Calabar, the Cross River state capital, after he commissioned a renovated Corporal Below Quarters of five blocks containing ten rooms each at the state command.
He described the welfare of the officers and men as paramount to the Nigerian government, as this will fast track the speedy development of government’s laid down projects.
Oshinowo, who inaugurated the buildings at the 13 Brigade Nigerian Army Barracks, Calabar, said they were renovated with assistance from the Chief of Army Staff and also thanked the Cross River State government alongside Men and Officers of the Command for their support as he’s at the verge of retiring.
He later paid a courtesy call on the acting governor of the state to intimate him on his retirement in few days’ time.
