‘We are spending Christmas, New Year in North East,’ Army chief says
Buratai had ealier said that the army is strategizing on how to end the insurgency once and for all.
Buratai made the comment on Tuesday, November 29, while unveiling special packs of bottle water produced in honour of soldiers fighting Boko Haram.
“This year (2016), the whole Army Headquarters will be moving into the North East to celebrate Christmas and New Year with our troops,” he said.
“The scheme involves branding 50cl bottle water with the image of the Nigerian soldier. It has the Nigerian army logo and that of stakeholders and partners from the private sector with the words: Thank you for your service.
“This will no doubt go a long way in boosting the morale of the troops to show that their labour is being recognized and applauded by Nigerians.
“This initiative is quite timely, coming at a critical stage of the operations, when the troops have embarked on Operation Rescue Finale.
“It will surely add vigour, impetus and stimulate the troops in this phase of the operation,” Buratai added.
