Nigerian Army, ICRC In Collaboration To Expand Peace Across Nigeria


0

The Nigerian Army (NA) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have resolved to strengthen partnerships for the purpose of expanding the frontiers of peace and stability across Nigeria.

The resolution was reinforced on Wednesday 31 January 2024, when the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, received the ICRC delegation in Nigeria led by Mr Yann Bonzon at the Army Headquarters, Abuja.

TheFact Daily gathers that the aim of expanding peace is to be achieved
through the provision of security, humanitarian assistance, and respect for international humanitarian law (IHL).

Mr Yann, while briefing the COAS said, the ICRC is committed to providing humanitarian assistance in conflict zones worldwide, similar to what it is doing in North-East Nigeria, where troops are conducting counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations.

He noted that the Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) has been able to carry out its established responsibilities in different parts of the country largely because of its cordial working relationship with the NA, and therefore sued for its sustenance.

In his remarks, the COAS appreciated the ICRC for its commitment to the provision of humanitarian aids, which he noted, has improved the living conditions of victims of conflict in troubled areas.

Speaking on the capacity-building efforts of the NA with regards to knowledge and application of International Humanitarian Laws in the conduct of operations, the Army Chief pointed out, that the NA has codified its protocol, which is now employed as teaching guides for NA personnel.

He affirmed that the ICRC package is taught in all NA institutions for Non- Non-commissioned officers Senior Non- Non-Commissioned Officers, and junior officers to ensure they understand the expectations and weight placed on them to meet international best practice.

Lt. Gen. Lagbaja lauded the ICRC for its collaboration in the areas of training, and medical assistance among others, and pledged that the NA will strengthen viable partnerships with the ICRC and other statutory organizations in order to bring relief and succour to victims of conflict and expand the frontiers of security and stability in the country.
