Peace gradually returning to Nigeria’s troubled areas–Irabor
The Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Leo Irabor, on Saturday, expressed delight that peace is gradually returning to several parts of the country, that were hitherto troubled by various security challenges.
He made this known in a remark to sign-off the ‘2022 edition of the CISM Day Run,’ organized by the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, in collaboration with the International Military Sports Council (CISM).
According to the CDS, the theme of the event, “Running for World Peace,” is apt, especially at a time some world nations are in conflict with each other, in addition to the prevailing insecurity in the country.
He said: “If there is anytime the world requires peace, it is now”.
Irabor, who stressed that physical fitness is essential as it helps troops to be mentally-alert and agile, urged participants to make physical exercise one of their daily habits, to put them in good shape as they tackle security threats.
He lauded the organizers of the event, while also thanking Nigerians for relentlessly supporting the Armed Forces, and other security agencies in their bid to address the challenge of insecurity.
The ‘Day Run’ was organized for officers and men of the Nigerian Armed Forces and their counterparts from sister security Agencies.
The 5-Km walk/jog exercise is in commemoration of the 2022 anniversary of CISM, globally.
The CISM Day Run is aimed at strengthening existing bond and espirit-de-corps between the Armed Forces and security agencies.
