The Chief Of Army Staff Orders Probe Of Alleged Poor Feeding Of Army Troops

In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Onyema Nwachukwu,today, The Nigerian Army (NA), said its attention has been drawn to the recent claim, which is unacceptable. The Army said it is crucial to point out to the general public that the welfare of troops under the present leadership of the NA takes a premium place amongst other important schemes and considerations, as it is one of the vital pillars of the COAS Command Philosophy, which is to provide “Sound Administration” in order to ensure a highly motivated force.
