Ekiti Gets Army Units

September 12, 2013

 The Federal Government has approved the establishment of a new Brigade headquarters of the Nigerian Army in Aaye Ekiti, Ido-osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

According to a letter by the Ministry of Defence and addressed to Governor Kayode Fayemi, the Brigade Headquarters will be sited on a landed property previously vested in the Nigerian Army since 1969.

The Defence Ministry in the letter dated September 2 , 2013 with reference number TA/126 CONS/S.12 also indicated that the community has made available 50.94 hectares of land for the army unit.

The letter stated further that a budgetary provision for the establishment of the army unit has been made in the Federal Government in the 2013 Appropriation Act.  It added that the military presence in the state would also boost economic development and security of lives and properties in the state.

It is recalled that the demand for an army unit was reopened by the state government during  Governor Fayemi’s working visit to the Defence headquarters in September 2011, where he got assurances from the Chief of Army Staff,  Lt. Gen Azubike Ihejirika on the request.
