From chasing the remnants of insurgents to the fringes, reopening previously inaccessible roads to the return of Internally Displaced Persons, the Nigerian troops are gradually restoring peace to the northeast.
Society Watch Magazine appears to be utterly overwhelmed by the COAS and the Army which bagged the "Best Government Institution of the Year".
At a ceremony held at the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, Abuja, on Wednesday, February 26, the platform, however, urged the COAS to sustain the momentum.
The Army chief was represented at the event by Brigadier General TO Olowomeye D CMA who received the awards on behalf of the COAS and the Nigerian Army.
The event was attended by personalities from different walks of life including the governor of Nasarawa state, ably represented by the director strategic communication and press affairs, Yakubu Lamai.
Others present include representatives of Honourable minister of state for Agriculture and Ministry of State for Petroleum Resources (COPP) Brigadier General PO Ilodibia among others.

The Army chief said the war cannot be left for the Military alone because of a series of indoctrination that has been carried out in the north for more than two decades.
