Chief of Army Staff, Faruk Yahaya has said that he has witnessed war and seen how it is being handled in other nations, hence he is full of experiences to deal with the current insecurity in the country.
TrillerTunes understands that the newly appointed COAS stated this while appearing for screening before the house of representatives joint committee on defence and army.
Sharing his vast of experience in the military, Yahaya told the committee that he has 36 years of military experience and participated in war and peacekeeping in Liberia. He said; “I have brought along with me 36 years of military experience, having joined the army on 27 September, 1985, as a member of 32nd regular course in NDA.
“I passed out on 2nd September, 1990, and I was posted to the infantry corps as an infantry officer, and since that time, I have passed through all the relevant courses commensurate to my career as I grew up, and I had served in various capacities, including command, staff, instruction and administration, including extracurricular.
“Less than three years ago, we were drafted to Liberia where I had the first-hand experience in war if you would call it so. And finally, my unit was located at Kata town, member of number 16 and for those conversant with that deployment, Kata town was the last deployment of the ECOMOG who were the ones facing Charles Tylor NPFLA there.
“So, all activities including wars and operations, including of course negotiations, were conducted by my unit on behalf of ECOMOG. We have severally hosted the United Nations negotiations in Kakata. We have hosted other factional leaders, including Kromah, Johnson, and others in those negotiations. We also fought our way to that end.
“So, if you will, I have the first-hand experience, barely three years after my passing out in war and its processes, similar to what we are facing now. After that, when we came back to the country, I was also promoted to guards brigade here where I served as a platoon commander. So, I am also abreast with the security requirement of Abuja itself and the parade and other requirements that characterised that deployment.
“Subsequently, I grew up in my career to become commanding officer in guards brigade garrison in Abuja here, and so I was involved in all the security requirements of securing Abuja and, particularly, the presidential villa.”
Yahaya also stated that he is bringing his certificate of experience and commitment to his new position.
The COAS added; “Looking at my career, I have virtually seen it all. I have seen war in other countries; I have seen how it was done. I was involved also in internal security operations both there and here.
“Here also, I have been to the north-west like I mentioned, south-south like I mentioned, and to the north-east. The challenges we are facing now are characterised by what I have mentioned. I have first-hand information where I have commanded troops and administered them in achieving what we have done.
“What I brought is the certificate of experience and commitment I have had all across my career. Throughout my career, I have been appointed as at when due. I am determined to provide my best, having known what is required to achieve result,” Yahaya reiterated.
