Earlier in his remarks, the leader of the team, Major General Malu John, who is the Commander Corp of Engineers in the Nigerian Army , thanked the Kebbi State government for finding the Nigerian Army worthy of partnership.
He said he was in the state to visit sites of construction works undertaken by the NigerianArmy Engineers Corps and that similar exercise was being carried out in Anambra, Kebbi and Bayelsa states by the Nigerian Army.
“Let me thank you most sincerely for finding the Nigerian Army worthy of partnership. Your state is the first I am visiting in this regard.’’
