Insecurity: Group hails COAS for professional conduct of personnel

By Sumaila Ogbaje

The Global Peace Movement International UK (GPMI) has commended the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, for the professional conduct of officers and men of the Nigerian Army.

The President General of GPMI, Dr Mike Uyi, made the commendation in a statement by organisation’s Media Officer, Augustine Aminu, on Wednesday in Abuja.

Uyi said that officers and men of the Nigerian Army had continued to exhibit a high level of professional style and approach in spite of challenges of obvious provocation.

He said that the professional conduct of the Nigerian Army under the leadership of Lt.-Gen. Yahaya was imperative and symbolic for other African countries to emulate.

According to him, Nigeria, taunted as the giant of Africa, in terms of population, geography, human and mineral resources should lead this aggressive revolution of ending all forms of insecurity for freedom and liberation of its citizens.

Uyi also commended the sterling leadership of the COAS which, according to him filled the leadership vacuum over the years to prosecute the war against terrorism.

He assured the COAS that GPMI as a family would continue to be behind him in the quest to wipe out Boko Haram, Banditry among other criminal elements disturbing the peace of the country.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that the effective leadership of the military authorities has a direct bearing in boosting the morale of the troops as well as their successful endeavour in routing the insurgents.

“We believe that the military, under Gen. Farouk is capable of ending the over 10-year-old insurgency and other forms of insecurity and ensure the permanent return of normalcy in the country,” he said.

The group also commended the Inspector General of the Nigeria Police Force, Usman Alkali, on the recent re-organisation in the Police Force, saying the measure was a step in the right direction.

“Global Peace Movement International is an anti-corruption crusader with a network of membership in about 25 countries of the world observers,” he said.
