Niger State Governor Calls For Support In Training Students In Military School

As the Nigeria Military School (NMS) marks its 68th Anniversary and Founders Day, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has called for more support for training of the students as they form a larger part of the military personnel recruited in the country.

Governor Bello who was the parade review officer and the special guest of honour at the event disclosed this in NMS, Zaria.

He said the students need support and encouragement as they undergo full military training, noting that it takes a lot of sacrifice.

The Governor, who is also an old boy of the school, enjoined other old students of the institution to contribute to its development, pointing out that the government cannot do it all.

He explained that the support is a way of giving back to the institution as it is the foundation of what they are today.

The Governor commended the teachers, instructors and management of the institution for instilling discipline into the students, as well as the infrastructural development.

He then called on other paramilitary organisations like the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency to assist the school in curbing the use of illicit drugs by the students as it will ruin their lives and future.

The Commandant NMS, Brig. Gen. Jonathan Aun expressed appreciation to the Niger State Governor for his unwavering support to the school.

The Foundation Day is an annual programme, organised to bring together students and ex-students to celebrate and share old memories, as well as reflect on their contributions to nation-building.

The school which was established in May 20, 1954, as boys company passed through various stages to become a military school that has produced both junior and senior officers into the Nigerian Armed Forces.

Highlights of the event were the inspection of guard of honour and a review of the parade by Governor Sani Bello.
