The Nigerian Army has appointed Brigadier General Ali Nani as the new General Officer Commanding GOC, 8 Division in Borno State.
General Nani takes the mantle of leadership from the outgoing Acting GOC, Brigadier General Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, who stepped down Thursday.
In a statement signed by the acting spokesperson of 7 Division NA, Lieutenant Wenke Tonye, on Thursday in Maiduguri said Mr. Okonkwo asked the officers and soldiers to accord the same cooperation to the incoming GOC.
In his response, Mr. Nani commended the outgoing GOC for steering the affairs of the division in its fight to crush terrorists and insurgents out of Borno State.
He also appealed to officers and soldiers of the division to work as a family and endeavor to render useful advice to him always in order to serve them and the Nigeria Army effectively.
