Samson was rewarded by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 8 Division of Nigerian Army Sokoto, Maj.-Gen. Uwem Bassey, after recognising his good conduct at interfaith prayers organised by the Army as part of its Remembrance Day Celebration.

Bassey, who was represented by Garrison Commander, Brig.-Gen. Ralph Nnabuife, urged people to emulate good habits and pray for the success of officers and men of the Nigerian Army on their various operations and national mandates.

The GOC said the essence of the prayers was to pray for troops deployed across the country for internal security operation and for peace to the nation.

He noted that sanitation was part of Nigerian Army Civil Military Cooperation activities aimed at building cordial relationships with the civil populace.
