The Commandant Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Major General Jamil Sarham, has challenged officers of the Nigerian Armed Forces serving in the Academy to always render selfless service while discharging their duties to the nation.
He stated this at the NDA Officers Mess during the decoration ceremony for 12 officers of the Academy who were recently promoted to the rank of Major and its equivalent in the Nigerian Armed Forces.
Gen Sarham lamented on unguarded utterances associated with some military personnel. He encouraged the newly promoted officers to resist the urge to engage in such acts. Instead, he noted, they should double their efforts at carrying out their duties professionally, especially at this time that the nation and the world at large is faced with a series of security challenges.
To succeed in their careers, the Commandant urged the newly promoted officers to remain steadfast as they are likely to face tougher challenges ahead. He also charged them to always remain loyal to the military.
The event was attended by Directors, officers serving in the Academy and family members of the newly promoted officers.
