The Nigerian Army has announced the cancellation of the remaining activities of the annual Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Conference, following the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was made known in a statement signed by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sagir Musa, dated December 10, 2020.
“The Nigerian Army wishes to inform members of the public that due to resurgence of COVID 19 Pandemic in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja in what appears to be a second wave of infection cycle and the unfortunate incident on Tuesday 8 December 2020, where an officer participating in the ongoing Chief of Army Staff’s Annual Conference 2020 here in Abuja tested positive to COVID 19, the remaining activities of the conference have therefore been immediately cancelled.
“All the participants have been mandated to immediately proceed on self isolation in line with the Federal Government’s protocol for COVID 19 and to prevent any further spread of the disease,” it informed.
The Army regretted all inconveniences the cancellation may have caused.
