General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), has informed military members that, if necessary, the armed forces will not hesitate to send injured personnel abroad for treatment.
He said that in order to ensure that they successfully carry out their professional obligations, their wellness is of the first significance.
The CDS said in a statement on Wednesday when he visited injured soldiers being treated at the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital in Kaduna, “The purpose of the visit, which is routine to military hospitals, is to encourage the personnel, appreciate their sacrifices to the nation, and see how they are recuperating.”
He claimed that without the troops, nothing could be done to combat crime and instability; he added that they stand with them and pray for their speedy recovery.
He expressed optimism that the visit would speed up their recovery and help them feel truly less alone.
The Chief Medical Director, physicians, nurses, and other staff members received positive feedback from the CDS as well.
Musa praised the hospital administration for its efforts in caring for the injured soldiers and upholding a safe atmosphere.
