“The exercise where you have the army and other security agencies collaborate and share experiences would improve security output.
“The essence of the Enduring Peace Exercise is to build that synergy among the security agencies on how to work together in tackling security challenges in the country.

The GOC reiterated the readiness of the security agencies to synergise in confronting the prevailing security challenges in parts of the country.
Also, Maj.-Gen. Sulaiman Idris, Commander of Nigerian Armoured Corps, Bauchi, said the participants performed well during the exercise in line with the policy of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya,
