The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, said participants had been drawn from the One, Two, Three, Seven and Eight Divisions of the Nigerian Army to participate in the five-day workshop holding in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State in northeast Nigeria.

The General Officer Commanding Three Division of the Nigeria Army, Major General Elvis Njoku, expressed hope that participants would be exposed to the acquired new equipment, field crafts and important military tactics now going extinct.
The Commanding Officer of 254 Task Force Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Edet Effiong, also commended the Army authorities for the training.
Other participants also welcomed the idea and expressed eagerness to cross-fertilise ideas with a view to providing practical suggestions that would be implemented to enhance combat proficiency in the discharge of their duties.
The annual workshop for the commanding officers offers a platform for participants to share peculiar and practical experiences to foster increased operational efficiency.
