The Nigerian Army says it has begun to engage some of its retirees to assist in tackling the rising insecurity in the country.

Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, said this on Tuesday, while opening the First Quarter 2021 Veterans Affairs Directorate Workshop in Port Harcourt.

The workshop has as its theme, “Harnessing the skills of retirees for national security”.

Attahiru, who was represented by the Army Chief of Administration, Maj.-Gen. Abdulrasheed Aliyu, said that veterans still had a lot to offer, in spite of their retirement from active service.

“We decided to engage them considering that Nigeria is currently faced with diverse security challenges, and everybody has a role to play toward securing the country.

“To this end, our retired and discharged personnel also have a role to play, especially at this time when our nation is faced with insecurity.

“So, this seminar seeks to tap into the wealth of experience of our retirees in tackling the nation’s diverse security challenges.

“It is also organised to prepare and strengthen the participants to play important supporting role in curbing the spate of crime and criminality,” Attahiru said.
