Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, on Monday, extolled the gallantry of the Nigerian Army in restoring order to the North-East.

Adesina, who made the remarks at the Guards Brigade First Quarter Inter-Unit Short Talk Competition, noted how the army cleared the remnants of Boko Haram insurgents from the sub-region.

He said the Nigerian Army, therefore, deserved commendation for its efforts at curtailing the activities of the insurgents and fighting other criminal elements in various parts of the country.

Adesina was the special guest of honour at the event that was designed by Guards Brigade to enhance the ability of men and officers to communicate effectively with the public, especially on their operations.

“I must at this point commend the effort of the Nigerian Army in clearing the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists from North-East of our dear country and other ongoing operations against criminal elements across the country.

“We must continue to reflect and remember the great sacrifices our gallant men and women in the Nigerian Army are making to keep our fatherland safe and habitable. Well done and keep it up,’’ the special adviser said.

The presidential aide also noted with delight that the Guards Brigade in particular and the Nigerian Army, in general, were making efforts to train their personnel.

He urged the army to remain resolute and sustain the tempo of equipping its soldiers.

On improving communication skills for soldiers, Adesina said acquiring appropriate skills in public speaking would greatly enhance the army’s internal and external relations.

The Commander of the Guards Brigade, Brig.-Gen. Musa Yusuf said the competition was put together to enhance the personal confidence of officers and men in public speaking.

According to him, the event also seeks to highlight the roles and responsibilities of the army to the public.
