The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, has commissioned the newly completed official residence of the Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) of 1 Division, Nigerian Army, and several other quarters for senior non-commissioned officers in Dalet Cantonment, Kawo, Kaduna.

The COAS commissioned the new residential quarters today, Tuesday, January 25, 2022, during an operational visit to Headquarters 1 Division, Nigerian Army.


Speaking during the commissioning, General Yahaya averred that RSMs are very vital in the management of soldiers and play a crucial role in inculcating discipline as well as promoting the ethos, traditions and doctrinal values of the Nigerian Army.


He acknowledged that service discipline and experiential knowledge imbibed from RSMs by soldiers build the foundation of trust and confidence, which enhance the stability of formations and units across the Nigerian Army.


The COAS maintained that the commissioning of the buildings was part of his welfare agenda for the RSMs, aimed at restoring the prestige of the office.

He later handed over the keys to the building to Army Warrant Officer (AWO) Adams Bamidele, the RSM of 1 Division, Nigerian Army.


It will be recalled that since his assumption of office, the COAS has been boosting troops’ morale and reinvigorating their fighting will with the prompt implementation of welfare policies and dispensation of welfare packages, such as the introduction of welfare flights for troops and their families, in and out of operational theatres, the construction of new accommodation quarters and renovation of dilapidated ones, to solve personnel’s accommodation challenges, and the sponsoring of Wounded in Action officers and soldiers for treatment overseas.


He has also presented Hilux vehicles to serving and retired RSMs to restore the dignity associated with the office and empower them to effectively carry out their duties.
