The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, has reiterated the readiness of the Armed Forces of Nigeria to support the aspirations and policies of President Bola Tinubu’s government.

Mr Musa gave the assurance while presenting a paper titled ‘Nigeria Security and Defence Policies: My Leadership Concepts for the Armed Forces of Nigeria’ in Jaji, Kaduna.

The director of defence information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, in a statement on Wednesday, said the defence chief delivered the lecture to members of Senior Course 46 of Armed Forces Command and Staff College.

The defence chief also reiterated the resolve of the military to defend democracy and rid the nation of all forms of security challenges.

Mr Musa called on the course participants to redouble their loyalty and commitment to democratic tenets and the rule of law.

While on an operational visit to the Nigerian Defence Academy, the defence chief charged cadets to see their admission to NDA as a privilege to serve the nation.

The military leader called on the cadets to be ready to serve and to put into practice all they had learned in the field.

Mr Musa thanked officers, soldiers and civilian staff for services rendered to the country and for their efforts in helping to mould and produce future military leaders for the country.

He also inspected ongoing projects at NDA and AFCSC, where he promised speedy completion.
