Air Vice Marshal Austine Jekenu, Commandant, Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre (NAFRC) has confirmed that a total of 320 military personnel will retire from the armed forces next week.
He told newsmen at the centre in Oshodi, Lagos today that the retiring military men were drawn from the Army, the Air Force and the Navy. “A total of 320 servicemen comprising of 262 from the Nigerian Army, 44 from the Nigerian Navy and 14 from the Nigerian Air Force would be graduating from the NAFRC,’’ he said.
Jekenu said that the retiring servicemen went through months of intensive training on skills acquisition and entrepreneurship at NAFRC. He said the training was to prepare the retirees for life after military service.
