The Nigerian Army has indicated its interest to collaborate with

communication, logistics support among others. The Chief of Army
Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, indicated
the interest today when he received the visiting High Commissioner
of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Nigeria, His Excellency Maj

Abuja. Gen Buratai recalled that Nigeria and the Islamic Republic of
Pakistan have enjoyed great military collaborations ranging from
exchange training at Junior and Senior Staff Courses and at the
National Defence College; capacity development of Nigerian Army
personnel, platforms acquisition amongst others. He expressed the
readiness of the Nigerian Army to continue to partner with the
Pakistani Army in order to tap from its wealth of experience,
especially on counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency. He acknowledged the role played by the Pakistani Armed Forces
in assisting the Nigerian Army with Radio Communication
equipment in the fight against the insurgency. The COAS described
it as important to the successes the Nigerian Army has recorded in
the operations, particularly in the North East part of the country. He assured the High Commissioner that the Nigerian Army would
continue to partner with his country with a view to increasing
capacity required to enable it to enhance its capability in tackling
security challenges in the country. Earlier, the High Commissioner of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, His Excellency Maj Gen (Retired) Wagar Ahmed Kingravi, thanked the COAS for receiving him. Ambassador BN Reddy also thanked the COAS for receiving him, saying he was proud of the relationship that exists between the two countries, especially in military cooperation. He added that Nigeria and his country share
similar challenges noting that the cooperation would go a long way
in helping both countries to tackle them. The High Commissioner commended the Nigerian Army under the leadership of Lt Gen TY Buratai, for performing beyond measure in the fight against terrorism. He further sought for the interest of the leadership of the Nigerian Army for its troops to be trained by the Pakistan Army, either in Nigeria or in Pakistan.
According to him, his country’s army has the capacity to train a
Battalion strength of Special Forces of the Nigerian Army. The visit was attended by some Principal Staff Officers of the Army Headquarters as well as the Defence Attaché to Nigeria. The event climaxed with the exchange of souvenirs between the COAS and the High Commissioner.
