“While in Jaji, Gen. Buratai also commissioned several projects which included Corporal and below quarters, – housing over 100  families, married officers’ quarters, Signal Wing at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry.

“He used the opportunity, as usual, to climb the  Infantry hill which is steep and sloppy hill used in testing the physical fitness and ability of both officers and soldiers,” he added.
