The army chief, Lt General Azubike Ihejirika has said that the army has
agreed to set up an Army Virtual War
College, as part of its personnel
He said, this implies that the students
will be electronically linked with other
war colleges abroad as they will have
periods for live interactions.
He added that it was discovered that a gap exists in the training system between when an officer passes out from the Armed Forces Command and Staff College and the attendance of National Defence University, which is a strategic level course.
So, we want to train officers who will
attain the national operational
knowledge to command troops in the
field and the course will be meant for
lieutenant colonels and young colonels.
Ihejirika announced this at a seminar
on Nigerian Army Transformation in
Abuja, adding that the army was
expanding in many ways to face the
current security challenges.
