Abdullahi gave the advice on Tuesday in Benin during his familiarisation visit to Nigerian Army Cantonment, Ekehaun.
He added that this was intertwined with the Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya’s vision of “a Professional Nigerian Army ready to accomplish assigned missions within a joint environment in defence of Nigeria”.
The brigade commander also defies the heavy downpour to tour some facilities like water facilities, and part of troop’s accommodation quarters within the cantonment.
He gave assurance to expedite commencement of rehabilitation work at the facilities with a view to reviving and making them functional again.
Responding, Lt.-Col. Temitayo Fakokunde, the Cantonment/Garrison Commander, appreciated the brigade commander for making out time to visit his troops.
Abdullahi thereafter planted a tree in commemoration of the visit.
The brigade commander further visited the 4 Brigade Medical Services within Cantonment. (NAN)
