The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu says the forthcoming Chief of Army Staff  Conference will evaluate the conduct of all ongoing operations in the country.

Nwachukwu said in a statement on Thursday in Abuja that it would also appraise trainings and other activities of the army.

Nwachukwu said the second and third COAS conference slated to hold from Sept. 11 to Sept. 15. would also enable the Army to make projections for the fourth quarter.

He particularly said it would serve as an avenue to appraise ongoing counter-terrorism counter-insurgency operations in the North East and North West, as well as other operational engagements nationwide.

Nwachukwu said the participants would have the privilege of gaining insight into the Command Philosophy of the COAS, Lt.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, and his agenda for the Nigerian army.

According to him, participants would equally be sensitised on the critical drivers of the COAS’ command philosophy, for effective implementation.

“The conference would as well feature presentation of briefs on training, operations, administration, logistics and other Nigerian Army activities, as captured in its 2023 Forecast of Events.

“During the conference, far-reaching decisions that would give impetus to the objectives of the service will be taken into consideration.

“Principal Staff Officers of the Army Headquarters, corps, formations, operations commanders, commandants of army schools, and tri-service institutions, as well as select officers holding key appointments are expected to participate in the conference,” he said. (NAN) (
