The Chairperson assured the chapter of unalloyed professional support and assistance to NASPRI at all times.
Earlier in his remarks, the Acting Commandant NASPRI Colonel Aliyu Yusuf said the school has demonstrated its determination to deliver its mandate of training Public Relations Officers and men in order to meet contemporary challenges in information management of the Nigerian Army and by extension the Armed Forces of our great nation Nigeria.
The Acting Commandant also stated that since inception of NASPRI, the School has trained over 3500 officers, soldiers and equivalent in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
