By Henry Okonkwo

The Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brig Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa (retd), has charged military officers to venture into book writing to expand the frontiers of knowledge in the service.

Marwa gave this charge on Friday when he presented ‘The Marwa Awards’ to two Army officers who came first in the Lieutenant–Captain Practical Promotion Examination and Senior Staff Course Qualifying Examination.

He said, “I would like to encourage officers to venture more into the field of writing to expand the frontiers of knowledge in the service.”

While commending the two officers, Major AC Ogbuogu and Lt OR Oyetunde, a female officer who won the awards, Marwa said, “I know coming first in these examinations is a reward of hard work because I came first in my time in these exams, so I should know.”

Speaking further at the event, he said, “I wish to commend the Armed Forces for their commitment, sacrifice, patriotism and gallantry in its fight to keep Nigeria safe. I trust we will prevail.”
