GOC of 6 Division calls for functional collaboration Among security agencies in Rivers State and Nigeria at large


The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 6 Division of Nigerian Army/ Land Component Commander, Joint Task Force, South-South, Operation "DELTA SAFE", Major General Jamal Abdussalam has called for functional collaboration among security agencies,  particularly the Armed Forces of Nigeria(AFN). 

He made the call when Commandant, of Nigerian Navy Basic Training School (NNBTS), Onne, Commodore Gideon Kachim paid him a courtesy call at the Headquarters 6 Division, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. 

The GOC remarked that the AFN is an entity with a lot of branches, operating along different functional lines for the same purpose. This relationship he said, is essentially to protect and defend the nations interests in  maintaining and contributing to national defence in line with the command philosophy of the Chief of Army Staff(COAS), Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja. 

While congratulating the Commandant on his appointment, he reiterated that he has confidence that he will turn around the fortune of NNBTS. 

He further added that the school, like the Depot Nigerian Army, is a place where civilians are broken into military personnel. Hence, the need to inculcate in them ab initio the concept of synergy in the AFN. 

He said, "They need to know that both the NA and the NN are one entity, performing different functions," He assured that the Division is always ready to support the school in whatever way possible. 

The Commandant, said that the NNBTS and sister Services have always been in collaboration and as such he deemed it fit to pay a courtesy call on the GOC, since he assumed office as the Commandant. 

Speaking further, he stated that the school is tasked with the responsibility of training civilians to become war machines required by the Navy. 

He further emphasized the importance of synergy, adding that during training, the school invites sister Services to give their own perception on certain topics. Hence, from time to time, they would leverage such opportunities. 

Commodore Kachim also used the platform to solicit support and assistance from the Division if the need arises.

 He expressed optimism that the school will also assist in accomplishing the GOC’s mission and the command philosophy of the COAS.
