The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai has charged officers and soldiers to remain professional and alert at Easter.
This was conveyed in an Easter message to the troops, in which he also felicitated with all those under his command.
“I therefore charge you all to remain loyal, alert, vigilant and professional in all you do this season and always. It is thus an opportunity to renew our faith, re-dedicate our commitment to service and united in our collective resolve to defend our country.
“I wish to use this opportunity to felicitate with all as we celebrate the Easter Season this Year 2017. I indeed felicitate with all troops under command for successfully witnessing this sacred period of Easter,” he said.
Buratai explained that this alongside the preceding Lenten period reminds us of personal sacrifices for the common good, care for the less privileged, protection of the vulnerable and love for fellow citizens.
“Let’s join hands to pray that the C-in-C and all our leaders should succeed in their efforts to deliver to the people a safe and prosperous country we all can be proud of,” he appealed.
