Speaking at the occasion, the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali said the Armed Forces are consolidating the gains of Boko Haram, adding the insurgents have been decimated.

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.

While appreciating 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, the minister commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his political will and strong support for the war against Boko Haram insurgency.

He said the feat is unprecedented in the history of the Nigerian Army and a great boost to the strength of the Officer Corps of the Nigerian Army under the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Y Buratai.
