Fakrogha said that female personnel should always contribute their quota towards achieving the goals of the Nigerian Army and justify the establishment of the women corps.

Fakrogha told them that although the Nigerian Army Women Corps (WAWC) was still very young, it has unique training programme capable of taking the women officers and soldiers to greater heights.

Earlier, Maj-Gen Faruk Yahaya, General Officer Commanding, 1 Division, Nigerian Army, thanked the commander for the visit, which was to sensitize women soldiers on their responsibilities.
