Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai on Tuesday 17 December 2019 commissioned a world class centre of excellence and knowledge under the supervision of Nigerian Army Resource Center in Abuja.
The newly completed facility is said to be ICT wired to international standard, complemented with a well furnished e-learning center, multiple study rooms and also multimedia facilities, among others.
Lt Get TY Buratai said the centre is a strategic service think tank for both national and international functions, and interest.
The Commissioning ceremony also featured the COAS lecture titled “Repositioning the Nigerian Army to meet the Transmuting Security Threats Facing the Nation: Prospects and Challenges.”
The Centre which was established on 20th November 2015, is conceptualized as a national ‘Think-Tank’ with the sole aim of furthering the interest and knowledge in the art, science and literature of the defence Services.
It is saddled with the responsibility of proffering solutions to defence and security issues confronting the Nigerian Army (NA) in particular and the nation in general.
This responsibility is actualized through research and other avenues including but not limited to brainstorming sessions involving seasoned retired officers and erudite scholars from the academia and related institutions.
To actualize this mandate, the centre was initially structured into Seven (7) Directorates.
The Centre is involved in publication of defence related journals, organization of seminars and consultancy services on various aspects of security-related issues.
The Centre also showcases new inventions, promote inter-disciplinary studies and issue annual reports and ultimately provide necessary advice to assist the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) towards improved decision-making and policy formulation.
