Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff, has told new recruits that all of them will go to Sambisa forest, a stronghold of the Boko Haram terrorist sect in Borno State at the end of their training.
He also informed the new recruits that there was no room for laziness and indiscipline in the Army, adding that they must make up their minds to serve Nigeria as soldiers.
Buratai disclosed this during the final screening of 80 regular recruits held at Falgore forest in Tudun Wads Local Government Area of Kano State.
“You must make up your mind that you’re ready to serve your country as a soldier and you should be ready,” Buratai said.
“All of you will go to Sambisa at the end of your depot training. If you’re not ready to move to Sambisa and other parts of the country, and of course,
our border areas to defend our country from any act of aggression, then you’ve not started.
“It’s not yet late, if you’ve any doubt, then you can stand up and go.
“There is no room for laziness and indiscipline in the Army and no room for malingering.”
