Army seeks indigenous technology to sustain operational needs

18 July 2014, 19:46

Minna- The army says it is desirous of developing indigenous technology that will sustain operational needs of its personnel to tackle the country’s security challenges.

Maj.-Gen. Salihu Uba, Commander, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Nigeria Army, Minna, made this known at the second quarter conference of the Nigerian Army Research and Development Committee in Minna.

"The Nigerian Army is desirous of developing indigenous technology that will sustain operational needs of its personnel; especially in the face of the current security challenges in the country.

"Your deliberations will consider the need for self-reliance in the production and modification of fast moving military equipment and stores,’’ he said.

Uba urged the participants to deliberate on the draft policy of the Nigerian Army Research and Development with a view to adding value and perfecting a methodology for its smooth implementation.

He called on the participants to consider contemporary events of military interests and draw up a plan where other security agencies and stakeholders would be involved for mutual benefits.

The TRADOC commander commended the Chief of Army Staff for the support to organise the conference.
