Nigerian Army Conducts Language Test
The Nigerian Army yesterdat Wednesday 15 August 2018 at the Army Headquarters Conference Room, conducted a test for its senior officers in Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba languages. The test which has 50 senior officers in attendance is part of the Nigerian Army’s effort towards ensuring that all personnel are proficient in the use of the three major Nigerian languages.
The test came after eight months of intensive lecture organised by the Army Headquarters for the senior officers. It is believed that understanding these languages will aid the troops while carrying out their constitutional roles particularly during internal security operations across the country. This will also enhance mutual cooperation between the Nigerian Army and the general public.
Senior officers that participated in the test include, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, Principal Staff Officers of the Army Headquarters, Corps Commanders, Directors, among others.
Speaking at the end of the test, the COAS commended the officers for their conduct throughout the period of the test, adding that the result will be announced soon and urged them to prepare for another exam next week.
It would be recalled that the COAS on assumption of office enjoined all personnel to learn the three major Nigerian languages as part of deliberate effort aimed at improving communication skill among the troops.
