General Bindu congratulated the Commander, Army HQ Garrison, Maj. -Gen. Kabir Garba for the achievements of the garrison in the area of training, urging officers and soldiers to take all exercises and training activities seriously.
The Garrison Training Officer, Brig.-Gen. Adeleye Lawal said the 2023 training had been rigorous deliberately because of the realisation that the personnel of AHQ Garrison were mostly soldiers working in the offices and very few in the field.
General Lawal said the participants comprise three teams, Alpha, Bravo and Charlie, consisting of soldiers from all AHQ departments, formations and units within FCT minus Guards Brigade.
Team Bravo emerged as the overall winner of the Competition.
