Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, has promised that the military will break the unholy alliance between the Boko Haram terrorists and Islamic State West Africa or ISWA.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Buratai made the assertion on Monday in Abuja when he declared open a two-day maiden seminar for senior officers tagged: “career planning and management’’.
He said: “I am glad to note that we are making strides against the Islamic State West Africa or ISWA in our bid to unhinge the unholy union between them and remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists.
“It is, therefore, imperative that we maintain the momentum while motivating our officers and men through an efficient and responsive career planning process.’’
Represented by Maj.-Gen. Aliyu Nani, the Chief of Policy and Plans, Buratai, however, noted that the army was being “stretched’’ by its involvement in many operations nationwide, particularly in the North East.
He said: “You would also be exposed to human resources management in a world of `Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity’ (VUCA).’’
