GOC 7 Division bags NEMA award for humanitarian services. ... dedicates award to troops

The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Victor Ezug­wu has been conferred with the National Emergency Manage­ment Agency (NEMA) award for outstanding performance in rendering humanitarian ser­vices to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
The Zonal Coordinator, NEMA North East, Alhaji Mo­hammed Kanar who led a team to present the award at the Headquarters, 7 Division, Mai­malari Cantonment remarked that the people of Borno State in particular are highly indebted to the Nigerian Army under the command of the GOC 7 Divi­sion in liberating 22 local gov­ernment areas that were hith­erto under the control of Boko Haram terrorists.
He noted that the humanitar­ian gestures of the 7 Division GOC towards the less privileged in the state as well as the IDPs in Bakasi Camp have really en­deared the GOC to the people of the state and other non-gov­ernmental organizations. This, he said necessitated the reason for the award.
Receiving the award, the GOC expressed gratitude for the honour done to him. He dedicated the award to gallant officers and soldiers who paid the supreme price in the fight against terrorism in the North East.
