Six-months after undergoing skill acquisition and entrepreneurial training at the Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre in Lagos, three hundred and twenty military personnel voluntarily bowed out of the Armed Forces.

A total of atleast 320 military personnel, comprising 262 from the Nigerian Army, 44 from the Nigerian Navy and 14 from the Nigerian Air Force have voluntarily bowed out of the Armed Forces.

According to Daily Sun, the personnel dropped their arms after 6-month skill acquisition and entrepreneurial training at the Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre (NAFRC), Oshodi, Lagos.

While bidding them farewell, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin, urged them to continue to contribute their quota towards surmounting threats to lives and property within their domiciled area.

“You will have to prove in your relationships that you have passed through a highly disciplined system such as the military.

“I believe you are all capable of succeeding and positively influencing whatever environment you find yourselves after now,” he said.

The CDS said he had no doubt that the training they have passed through at the Centre would expose them to several entrepreneurial and management skills that would help mitigate the envisaged pitfalls as well as living a stress free life in retirement.

“Let me use this opportunity to intimate you that the Defence Headquarters recently organised a workshop with the aim of harmonising all armed forces veterans associations.

“Thus a Veteran Association of Nigeria has been proposed and modalities for its establishment are ongoing.

“Also, a change in name and mandate of NAFRC is being considered to better reflect the current role of the Centre in capacity development of our retiring officers, soldiers, ratings and airmen,” he said.
