Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), has stated that logistics will continue to be a crucial component in combat if a decisive victory is to be achieved.

The COAS stated this during his remarks at the Nigerian Army School of Supply and Transport (NASST), Brigadier General KH Yakubu Officers' Mess, Ugbowo, Benin City, Edo State, during the Combat Service Support Training Week 2021.

The COAS went on to say that lessons learned in the North East and other theatres of operations have shown that the importance of key logistics supplies in all types of operations cannot be overstated if operational success is to be achieved.

In a similar vein, Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki reaffirmed the Edo State Government's support for the Nigerian Army (NA), particularly in view of the immense and selfless sacrifices made by troops who put their lives in danger to promote peace, progress, and development in the country.

During the event, the governor made the announcement while stressing the State Government's efforts in the ongoing construction of a 20-room hostel for the NASST.

Major General Bolaji Salami, the Commander Corps of Supply and Transport, also spoke at the occasion, saying that the training week will allow the NA's Combat Service Support Arms to examine current logistics difficulties and how they may be streamlined to support Nigerian Army operations.

He then challenged the attendees to develop a solid logistical strategy that would aid the NA in conquering its foes.

Governor Godwin Obaseki, accompanied by the COAS, Principal Staff Officers from Army Headquarters and Corps Commanders, inspected the ongoing construction of the 20-room hostel accommodation, and a static display of inventions and innovations by various combat services support corps of the NA were among the event's highlights.
