Mr Okou said it was hindering physical and cognitive performance for combat readiness.

• September 28, 2022

The 1 Division, Nigerian Army Physical Training Department, on Tuesday organised a two-day ‘Pilot Clinic on Physical Efficiency Test’ as an after-action review of the second physical efficiency test for 2022.

The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army, Maj.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, said the clinic was to assess the overall performance of the just-concluded second annual physical efficiency test.

The GOC was represented by the division’s training officer, Brig.-Gen. Bede Amakor.

He said the clinic was to standardise the initiatives and innovations geared towards better efficiency and effectiveness concerning physical fitness.

Mr Lagbaja also commended the initiative of the acting assistant director 1 Division Physical Training for organising the clinic.

The acting assistant director of Army Physical Training 1 Division, Maj. Timipre Okou, stated that the pilot clinic would, among other things, assist in counselling personnel on the dangerous practice of drastic weight loss or gain, which limited effective body function.

Mr Okou said it was hindering physical and cognitive performance for combat readiness. He added that personnel could make frantic efforts to remain active while in service.
