Nigerian Army Organise Football Competition
As part of 8 Task Force Division’s non-kinetic operations to meaningfully engage the youths in its Area of Responsibility, the Division has initiated a football competition tagged “Lt Gen Tukur Yusufu Buratai Football Tournament”.
The tournament is aimed at fostering Civil – Military Cooperation, as well as winning the “heart and minds” of youths who constitute a significant segment of the local population. Most importantly, the tournament seeks to make vulnerable youths in the communities unavailable for Boko Haram radicalization and recruitment.
The tournament kicked off on 16 September 2017, with 16 teams drawn from Northern Borno. The preliminaries have been concluded, however, the competition is currently at the quarter final stage. The final is expected to hold in December.
