COAS Harps On Improving HealthCare Facilities In Barracks.

Nigerian Army has stressed on the need to continue to enhance health care infrastructure in the Army barracks and Cantonments in line with the new minimum acceptable standards of medical facilities for army formations and units across the country.

The Chief of Army Staff, (COAS) Lieutenant - General Taoreed Lagbaja, disclosed this at the commissioning ceremony of a state of the art remodeled medical facility in 401 Special Forces Brigade, at the Joe Akahan Military Cantonment, Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

The Chief of Army Staff, who noted that the labour and maternity wards have been upgraded to eradicate maternal and infant mortality, often occasioned by lack of essential equipment, disclosed that similar interventions have since commenced in the brigade medical centres in Lokoja and Ikeja Cantonment, Lagos, while that of the Gibson Jalo Cantonment, Yola is the next in line.

The Commander 4 Special Forces Command, Major General Hillary Nzan, who also spoke at the ceremony, said that the medical facility will not only bring succour to the cantonment community, but also to the adjoining communities, as its services will be open to the civil populace, just as he commended the COAS for the initiative.
