THE Chief of Amry Staff (COAS), Major General Faruk Yahaya, has assured Nigerians that the troops will not relent on the war against insurgency.

The COAS, who made this vow at the special interdenominational church service at Mogadishu Cantonment, Asokoro, Abuja, yesterday to mark the Nigerian Army Day Celebration (NADCEL), said the will of the military can achieve this with determination, prayer and commitment.

Gen Yahaya urged the military to always thank God for their successes and prays for more blessings.

The COAS pointed out that the message he is passing with his presence at the Inter-denominational service is that the military operates as a single unit.

He said, “The military operates only as one unit even though there are Christians and Muslims, the job of the military is not an individual one but of a collective unit, sub-units, sections platoons, company, battalion and brigade.

“There are no individual jobs or division, when we are lined up in a battlefront the man next to you would be a Christian or a Muslim, the essence is unity and synergy with other services and agencies. And you can see what the synergy has brought us in the successes we are achieving, hence the Inter-denominational service we had, we are all united in our goal to bring security and peace to the country.”

Earlier at the service, which began with a procession of clergymen, joined by the military officers adorn in their ceremonial uniform, the Director Chaplain Services Roman Catholic, Colonel Iscongo Mariga, took the Gospel Reading, taken from the gospel of John 17:1-2& 17-13, which centres on the unity of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
