Irabor gave the assurance on Wednesday in Makurdi, when he met with retired senior military officers from the North Central Zone.

The CDS stressed that the military would remain at the fore front in tackling any form of insecurity.

“To make significant impact in ensuring that peace takes pre-eminence in the country, we need to fall back on the retired military officers.

“This is because they also live among the people, thereby having a lot to offer regarding security issues,’’ Irabor said.

He urged the ex-officers not to consider themselves as retired personnel but see themselves as being in active service.

“Once a military officer, you remain a military officer for life, whether serving or retired.

“The motto of the country which is `Unity, Peace and Faith’ is what we swore to defend and we are committed to it,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, the Chief of Defence Civil Military Corporation, CDCIMIC, Rear Admiral Frederick Ugo, said the meeting was necessitated by the current insecurity in the country.
