Dan-Ali warned the officer cadets against disloyalty, disobedience and insubordination to the constituted authority.

He said any person caught with disloyalty and similar offences would be decisively dealt with accordingly saying, “I wish to make it clear that the armed forces of Nigeria are also undergoing a period of self-appraisal; there is zero tolerance for indiscipline and unprofessional conduct”.

Dan-Ali noted that the passing out of another set of officers to the Nigerian Army came at a period when the country was consolidating on the gains of counter-insurgency operation, adding that “the Nigerian Armed Forces, as you are aware, have been involved in an extensive combat against insurgency and terrorist groups.
