Reps to invite Army Chief over number of personnel trained and recruited in the last five years
The House of Reps committee on Army has been directed to invite the Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya to provide details of the total number of personnel trained and recruited by the Nigerian Army in the past five years.
The resolution was reached after a motion by Honourable Sergius Ogun, on the need to ascertain the current numerical strength of the Nigerian army, was considered by the lawmakers.
Lawmakers in the green chamber also acknowledged that the Nigerian Army and the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have been overstretched by the fight against insecurity in some parts of the country which poses a threat to the peace and unity of Nigeria.
