The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, has advocated for jointness in training exercises being conducted for officers of the armed forces at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College Jaji, Kaduna State.
Yahaya made call on Wednesday when he visited the Department of Land Warfare (DLW) as part of his ongoing visit to the college for the graduation ceremony of 43 Senior Course of the prestigious military institution.
Jointness is a neologism coined by the United States Armed Forces to describe cross-service cooperation in all stages of the military processes, from research, through procurement and into operations.
Today, it is accepted by many advanced militaries.
The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
The COAS emphasised the need to infuse jointness into all training exercises of the institution.
He said that the successes so far recorded in various military operations against insurgency, banditry and other sundry crimes in the country were results of jointness of the services in synergy with other security agencies. (NAN)
