The Commander 33 Artillery Brigade of the Nigeria Army Bauchi, Brig Gen Emmanuel Egbe, has advocated for enhanced synergy between the army and sister-agencies for effective constitutional responsibilities.

Egbe made the appeal when he led troops from the brigade and officers of other security agencies along some roads in Bauchi during a 10-kilometer  joint route march on Friday.

He explained that the essence was to bring all the services and security agencies together to promote esprit de corps and establish synergy, information gathering to curb challenges of insecurity in the nation.

“It would help them to know how to operate together anytime there are engagements involving security agencies to improve security in the country,” he said.

Egbe also said that physical fitness was paramount in the Nigeria Army, adding, “You must be fit to perform your constitutional responsibilities.”

He advised the troops to be more civil in relationships with host communities and move along with other sister-agencies.

Egbe also urged the troops to be disciplined, honest and remain physically fit to fight the insurgency in the nation.

Besides, the commander scored the Nigerian Army high, saying, ‘it has done well in the fight against insecurity – the armed forces and other security agencies are always battle ready to tackle insecurity.”

Egbe however commended wives of  officers for supporting and standing by their husbands always.

The security agencies that joined army troops in the route march include, the Nigeria Air Force, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, the Nigerian Immigration Service, the Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps.

Others are the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Directorate of State Services, members of the National Youth Service Corps among others.
