You will recall that a reconnaissance and an advance team for the establishment of Military Command and Control Centre (MCCC) were in Maiduguri and Yola last week. Similarly, the Chief of Army Staff and Chief of Air Staff were at the MCCC to commence operations Tuesday June 9, 2015.
The installations of hi-tech equipment, infrastructural development of the Centre and posting of additional operations staff have also commenced. These are to be completed within 21 days when the MCCC would be fully operational.
With the establishment of the Centre, all strategic and operational decisions on the fight against terrorism and insurgency would emanate from the MCCC. This will ensure faster response time; improve situational awareness and better coordination of all stakeholders.
The centre will also give the needed impetus that would ensure prosecution and successful conclusion of the war against terrorism. It will also provide the required interface between the Armed Forces of Nigeria and Multi-National Joint Task Force to be deployed at the Lake Chad Basin area at the end of the month of July 2015.
