Earlier in his remarks, Acting Chief of Accounts and Budget (Army), Brigadier General Jahadi Jakko, described the theme of the training, “Towards Achieving Prudent Utilization of Financial Resources for a Professional Responsive Nigerian Army: The Role of NAFC, WOs/SNCOs”, as apt, considering the prevailing economic realities in the country.
He said that the training was designed to enhance capacity development and update personnel.
