The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule has donated the sum of N20 million to the Nigerian Army on behalf of the government and people of the state as a token of appreciation for their sacrifices.

The governor also promised to furnish and deploy new teachers to the Army Children and Command Secondary Schools within the Doma Barracks located in Doma Local Government Area of the state.

Governor Sule made this known over the weekend during the 2023 West African Social Activities (WASA) held in the Doma Barracks.

He further commended the Nigerian Army for establishing a school within the barracks that would serve not only their children but the entire community hosting the barracks.

He said: “On our own part as a state, I want to promise that we will furnish that school once it’s completed.

“In addition, it’s coming just at a time when we are employing 4,700 teachers in Nasarawa State. We will be able to deploy some teachers to this school.

“And there is also a secondary school attached. We have just concluded the employment of 1,000 secondary school teachers and I will ask our people from SUBEB, as well as Teachers Service Commission to come and take a look and see what they can do on this.”

Governor Sule also used the occasion to acknowledge the efforts of the Nigerian Army in peacekeeping missions across the globe that have recorded victories already documented in history.

He noted that despite the security challenges faced by the Nigerian Army in 2023, the army in collaboration with sister security agencies was able to surmount the challenges, especially in the North Central region, and particularly in Nasarawa State.

“It’s expected that this event will strengthen the bond of togetherness and will serve as a panacea for purposeful leadership, unity, peace, and security of your regiment in particular and the country in general.”

In his earlier remark, Commander of the Nigerian Army 4 Special Forces Command, Doma, Major General Hilary Nzan, appreciated the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Abiodun Lagbaja for his continuous motivation to the troops.
