Plateau State Sees New Developments as Nigerian Army Commissions Projects for Army Day

In commemoration of the Nigerian Army Day Celebration (NADCEL), the Nigerian Army commissioned several Civil Military Cooperation (CIMIC) projects across Plateau State. These projects, part of the 2024 NADCEL activities, aim to foster community development and enhance living standards in local communities.

The projects inaugurated include the remodeled assembly hall at Government Science College in Wase, the Hoss Community School in Riyom LGA, and solar-powered boreholes in Bokkos and Bassa LGAs.

The commissioning ceremonies attracted top military officials, prominent community leaders, local government officers, and numerous residents from the host communities.

At the event in Jebu Bassa, Bassa LGA, where a 40,000-litre solar-powered borehole was inaugurated, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ta Lagbaja, represented by Major General G.O. Adesina, delivered remarks on behalf of the Nigerian Army.

“I am delighted to be here today in Jebu Bassa to commission this water facility executed by the Nigerian Army,” General Adesina stated. “This 40,000-litre water storage facility, powered by solar energy, is part of the series of events for the Nigerian Army Day Celebration 2024 in Plateau State.”

He emphasized the significance of selecting Jebu Bassa for this project, highlighting its role as the host community for the Nigerian Army’s 3rd Division and home to many veterans. “This project represents one of the Nigerian Army’s modest contributions to improving the living standards of the people in this community,” he said. “It also complements the efforts of federal and state governments, as well as other organizations, in providing potable water and developing the state.”

General Adesina urged community leaders to take ownership of the project and ensure its maintenance to prolong its benefits. He reassured the community of the Army’s commitment to both kinetic and non-kinetic operations to restore security and peaceful coexistence in Plateau State.

“The execution of various quick-impact projects is part of our non-kinetic efforts to alleviate the challenges faced by host communities in areas where military operations are ongoing,” he noted. “The continuous support of the Jebu Bassa community and Plateau State at large has significantly contributed to the operational successes of our troops.”

He concluded by expressing gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, for providing the resources and strategic guidance necessary for the Army’s operations. “I wish to restate the unwavering loyalty of the Nigerian Army to the President and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in executing our mandate,” he affirmed.

The Nigerian Army’s efforts to reinforce social cohesion and resilience through these community projects underscore its dedication to supporting and developing the regions in which it operates, particularly as part of the Nigerian Army Day Celebration 2024.
