The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has charged new recruits to be ready to defend the country against external aggression and other security threats.
He gave the charge during the final screening for 80 regular recruits held at the notorious Falgore forest in Tudun Wads Local Government Area of Kano State.
He also charged the recruits to be prepared for a move to Sambisa Forest, a stronghold of the Boko Haram terrorist sect in Borno State.
He said those who are not disciplined and loyal to the cause are free to find their own way. He also called them to make up their mind that they are ready to serve to the country as a soldier.
Burutai said that henceforth, the recruitment and selection will be conducted in Falgore Forest, pointing out that all recruits would be subjected to a similar process.
Adding that there is no room for laziness and indiscipline in the Army and no room for malingering.
