The Minister of Defence, retired Brig.-Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali on Saturday, warned against disloyalty, disobedience and insubordination to the constituted authority.

He gave the warning during the passing out parade of officers’ cadet of Direct Short Service course at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry, Jaji, Kaduna.

He said any person caught with disloyalty and similar offences would be decisively dealt with accordingly.

“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 the country was consolidating on the gains of counter -insurgency operation.

“The Nigerian Armed Forces, as you are aware, have been involved in an extensive combat against insurgency and terrorist groups.

“It is the responsibility of every one to play in the consolidation of on-going success and post -conflict situation.”

The minister appreciated the success of the armed forces in various operations, especially in the north eastern part of the country, where the Boko Haram insurgency had largely been decimated.

He also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his political will and strong support for the war against Boko Haram insurgency.

No fewer than 200 officers graduated from the six-month training. (NAN)
