The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, has commended the Nigeria Army Engineering Construction Regiment, Ede for playing an important role in the infrastructural and economic development of the country.
Buratai spoke in Kuta, Osun state, during the commissioning of the bridge named after him constructed by the Nigeria Army Engineering Construct Regiment, Ede.
He recalled roles played by the Army engineers after the civil war, describing the officers and men of the corps as professionals that would deliver quality at a very cheap cost.
The COS, who commended Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude, for supporting the Nigeria Army in the midst of bitter criticism, said the royal father had mobilized Civil Society Organizations and the media to support the army. He said, “We have a new army that is determined to be responsive and professional in the discharge of constitutional duties.
“The Nigeria Army Engineering Corps is one institution that has played a very important role in infrastructural development. They are professionals, experts, and deliver quality at a very cheap cost.”
In his remarks, Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, pledged the continuous support of his government to the army, saying the bridge would foster cordial military/ civilian relationship in the state.
