Bauchi promises conducive working environment for security agencies

The deputy governor of Bauchi state, Mohammed Auwal Jatau, has participated at the 2023 edition of the West African Social Activities (WASA) organised by the Nigerian Army, 33 Artillery Brigade, Bauchi.

Jatau who was the special guest of honour at the occasion, noted that the conduct of the annual social activities will go a long way in consolidating the existing harmonious relationship among the various cultural groups in the barracks. 

The deputy governor also pointed out that the relationship between the army and the people of Bauchi state has been very cordial, hence the need for the present administration to be working harmoniously in partnership with the Nigerian Army to ensure peace and security in the state. 

To this end, he said the administration of Governor Bala Mohammed, has been providing the army and other security agencies the necessary logistic support for the effective discharge of their duties.

He said since the return of the country to democratic rule, the Nigerian Army has remained apolitical and focused on its constitutional role of defending the integrity of the nation and intervening in local crisis and counterinsurgency and hoped that the army and other arms of the military will maintain the posture for their development and development of the nation in general.

“The holding of the annual social activities underscores the adage that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Having tirelessly and stressfully worked throughout the year therefore, it is only proper that officers and men of the Nigerian Army have a time to not only freshen up but to also socialize,” he said.
