Speaking on behalf of the Chief of Army Staff during the troops departure at Margaret Ekpo International Airport, the 13 Brigade Commander, Brigadier General Okwudili Azinta said the participants will be making history as it is the first time troops from Nigerian Army will join their counterparts in Cameroon to celebrate independence.

Okwudili charged the troops to represent the country well and show discipline while in Cameroon.

“I charge you to represent Nigeria well while in Cameroon, the glory will come back to you, the command and the Nigerian Army”
