Ikpeazu canvasses monitoring inflows, outflows of funds to check insurgency
Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has canvassed finance intelligence in the Armed Forces training curriculum to enable officers to monitor movement of funds within and outside the country, especially by insurgents.
Ikpeazu, who lamented that the country was facing various challenges, identified insurgency, as the most daunting and that it had metamorphosed to all parts of Nigeria.
He stated this during the commissioning of some infrastructure facilities provided by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for the Nigerian Navy Finance and Logistics College in Owerrinta, Abia State under the bank’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) intervention projects programme.
The commissioned facilities include an administrative block, male and female hostels, dinning hall, library, gymnasium, academic complex and swimming pool.
Ikpeazu, who said terrorism and banditry had placed a huge burden on the Nigerian Navy and other security agencies in the country, charged their leadership to boost their trainings in line with 21st century challenges.
Responding, Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, said the advantages of the infrastructure facilities include improved accommodation in the college, keeping pace with the National Board for Technical Education criteria for National Diploma (ND) programme, facilitation of swimming proficiency for officers, as well as enhanced physical and medical fitness, among others.
On his part, Commandant of the College, Commodore Suleman Abdullahi, who said the buildings would assist the institution in addressing various issues that affected its collective interest, thanked the host community and industry stakeholders for their support in providing the facilities and peaceful co-existence in the college.
