• Military men retired
  • The Nigerian Military on Friday retired 256 non commissioned officers after 35 years of service to the country. Prior to their retirement, the retirees had undergone several courses on reintegration to civil life, entrepreneurship and other kills acquisition programmes at the Armed Forces Resettlement Centre (NAFRC), Oshodi in Lagos. The retirees which included men from the Nigeria Army, the Nigeria Navy, and the Nigeria Airforce were hosted to a combined passing out ceremony with 26 Generals and 47 mid-level officers who underwent management and entrepreneurship courses also at NAFRC. It was learnt that the 76 officers were penciled for the courses they took to prepare them for retirement since they do not have many years in the civil service. Speaking at the ceremony, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin, urged the retirees to be unrelenting in their support to security agencies particularly in the area of community intelligence gathering. He also commended NAFRC Commandant, Air Vice Marshal Kingsley Lar and other staff for ensuring that Armed Forces personnel were exposed to the latest trends in global entrepreneurship and management training. Also at the ceremony were a former CDS, Gen. Alexander Ogomudia (rtd.), Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Defence, Babajimi Benson, General Officer Commanding (GOC) 81 Division, Maj.Gen. Godwin Umelo and Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Logistics Command, AVM Lawal Alao, among others.
