Gen Buratai’s Yuletide message to gallant troops

It is with utmost humility and gratitude to the Almighty that I send this goodwill message to officers, soldiers and indeed the Nigerian Army family on the Christmas and New Year Celebrations. buratai
Let me use this opportunity to commend the efforts and sacrifices of our gallant officers and men currently engaged in the counter insurgency operations in the North East and other operations across the country and abroad. I congratulate you for your bravery, doggedness and loyalty in these endeavours.
I want to urge you all to maintain the momentum and remain steadfast as we continue to professionally and responsively carryout our constitutional roles.
On my part, I would continue to ensure that troops’ welfare and that of their families, remains my utmost priority. Let me reassure you of the Federal Government’s commitment to providing the Nigerian Army with the requisite support for us to perform our duties.
The President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR has pledged his total support to the Armed Forces to bring all ongoing operations to an end in favour of our dear country. This festive season heralds peace as well as a time for merriment, sober reflection and introspection.
I enjoin us all to continue to pray to the Almighty God for the repose of the souls of our fallen comrades and the wellbeing of the families of our brave fallen heroes.
I thank you all for the good job you have done in 2016 and look forward to us making greater progress in 2017. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
TY BURATAI

Chief of Army Staff.
