Presenting the gifts, the General Officer Commanding of the Division, Major General Taoreed Lagbaja, commended the lucky winners for conducting themselves in an exemplary way and noted that the soldiers’ assiduousness in ensuring the hygiene of the various portions of the cantonment assigned to them was impressive.
He charged other Division soldiers to emulate the honourees’ exemplary conduct.
The General Officer Commanding disclosed that the four motorcycles presented to the soldiers were a symbol of appreciation for their outstanding conduct. He, therefore, enjoined them not to relent in their duties even if they thought nobody was observing.
Each of the four awarded soldiers was drawn from various units of the Division and was picked after carefully observing their conduct over a period.
