“The training with its theme: `Sustaining Capacity Building as Key to Successful Conduct of MOOTW’, is for officers within the 81 Division Area of Responsibility, which covers Lagos and Ogun states.
“The training, beginning from April 1 to 5, will also involve Corps Headquarters, Army Headquarters Departments, and Nigerian Army schools as well as sister services, paramilitary agencies, and parastatals located therein,” he said.
