The 3 Divisional Headquarters of the Nigerian Army, Jos, on Tuesday started a five-day-operational-planning-skills’ training for 330 officers under the division in Bauchi, Bauchi State.
Maj.-Gen. Peter Dauke, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the division, said that the exercise was in compliance with the army training focus for 2017 during the flag-off.
Dauke, represented by Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Magaji, Commander, 3Division, Garrison Command, Jos, said that the division was tasked under the act to conduct operational planning exercise for the selected officers.
The training was a process of attaining tactical goals and objectives where higher commanders’ directives would be translated into actions and achievable goals, he said.
Dauke recalled the prevailing insurgency, cattle rustling, kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers’ clashes, oil bunkering, pipeline vandals and other crimes that had bedeviled the country.
He noted that the training became necessary to enable the army live up-to its responsibility of protecting the lives and properties of the citizenry.
Dauke advised the officers to limit their movements and be pro-active as well as remain alert while in Bauchi for the exercise.
He said that the country could not afford to miss such calibre of personnel.
