Army donates cheque to NOKs of fallen heroes
Senator Iroegbu in Abuja
The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt-Gen. Kenneth Minimah has charged Nigerian Army student pilots to, at all times, be ready to work and live with troops wherever operational exigency demands without any thought of leaving their chosen line of flying combat helicopters.
This was disclosed in a statement signed on Thursday by the Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), Col Sani Usman.
He said Minimah gave this charge while addressing student pilots undergoing helicopter flying training at the International Helicopter Flying School, Enugu.
The COAS said: “You should all be ready to at all times live and work with troops where ever operational exigency demands. You should also banish all thoughts of leaving your chosen line of flying combat helicopters.
“The Nigerian Army will not train you and afterwards allow you to branch out to other arms or services on flimsy excuses”.
