Adamawa State governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has hailed the Nigerian Army for the way they have tackled the activities of Boko Haram terrorists in the North East.
The governor also hailed them for restoring peace in Adamawa state.
Ahmadu, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Seth Crowther, said this during the inauguration of multi-million Naira projects in Gibson Jalo Cantonment on Saturday in Yola.
His words, “To reciprocate your effort, the Adamawa State government is making effort to assist in renovating the Command Day Secondary School and road network in Gibson Jalo Cantonment.”
“In the same vein, the transit accommodation will assist in facilitating the general administration of the large number of personnel deployed here in the north east who use the cantonment as a transit point.
“Also, the accident and emergency ward will enhance healthcare delivery for the soldiers and their families as well as the locals residing around the cantonment.”
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, also said, “As I continue to address your challenges, I want you to keep faith with us and remain loyal and grateful to the federal government of Nigeria under the leadership of president Buhari.
“Let me at this juncture assure you that we will continue to renovate all the dilapidated structures in this barracks and we hope that the promise by the state government to renovate the command school will be effected soon.
“I urge you all to redouble your effort and rededicate yourselves to service as we all collectively defend the territorial integrity of our nation.”
