The Chief of Army Staff(COAS) Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya has tasked troops of the Nigerian Army to fight insecurity with simulation technologies.
He told officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army (NA) that there is a need to extensively deploy simulation technologies for capacity building and force multiplication in aid to ongoing military operations across the country.
COAS gave the charge while declaring open a 5-day Simulation Exercise codenamed Ex Lion Heart at the Land Forces Simulation Centre Nigeria, Giri, Abuja.
Brigadier General Director Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu in a statement said that the COAS was represented at the event by the Director of Courses, Department of Training (Army), Brigadier General Ibikunle Ajose.
General Yahaya said the exercise is in line with his vision for the Nigerian Army, which is to have “A Professional Nigerian Army Ready to Accomplish Assigned Missions within a Joint Environment in Defence of Nigeria”.
He commended the Centre for collaborating with relevant organisations and agencies with a wealth of experience in simulation technology to fast track its development.
The COAS appreciated the support of MASA Group and Bohemia Interactive Simulation, which he said availed the centre trial versions of MASA Simulated Wargaming for Operational  Readiness and Doctrine (SWORD) and the Virtual Battle Space Series 4 software, respectively.
He assured the Centre of requisite administrative and logistics support to make it a centre of international repute.
In his address, the Director-General Land Forces Simulation Centre Nigeria, Major General Felix Omoigui said the exercise, which is jointly organised with the Defence Simulation Centre Jaji is aimed at enhancing the capacity of the technical staff of the centres and sister security services for operational planning and decision-making.
According to him, the exercise will equally sharpen the skills of personnel of the centres and the Nigerian Army in the newly acquired simulation software.
He added that the joint exercise will further build capacity on the use of the MASA SWORD software.
He expressed gratitude to the COAS for his support of the centre and for providing the needed logistics for the exercise.
