The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, has bagged the prestigious International peace award of valour and gallantry.
The award is to be conferred on the CDS by the Global Peace Movement International, UK at the Defence headquarters, Abuja on Tuesday 5th December, 2023.
In a statement signed by its President General, Dr. Mike Uyi said the award is in recognition of Musa’s “track record of selfless service, professionalism and undiluted transparency introduced into the dynamic nature of making our dear country safer and much more habitable by the citizens and other categories of residents.”
Uyi said said after carefully observing Gen. Christopher Musa’s commitment towards fighting insurgency and suppressing emerging terrorists, cattle rustlers and other bandits across the country, it is necessary to applaud his efforts, so that he can be motivated to do more for the country.
He described Musa as a military officer that knows his job and committed to rooting out the remnants of Boko Haram in the country.
“We wish to thank him immensely for coordinating and sustaining all the actions, programmes, efforts and special projects that have accounted for the liberation of communities and the return of peace across Nigeria.
“We are optimistic that by injecting hard work, perseverance, renewed commitment and effective deployment of material and human resources, to carry out his assigned responsibilities, he has equally indelibly placed his precious name on the sands of time in service to nation and mankind.”
