Flanked by Brigadier General Mohammed Tajudeen Aminu, the Commander of the 35 Artillery Brigade, Usman cautioned against disloyalty within the Nigerian Armed Forces and acknowledged challenges that aren't peculiar to the Brigade Command.

His word's “While we are looking at the challenges and how to solve them, you have to be disciplined soldiers, you have to be loyal soldiers.

“When I mean loyalty, your loyalty must start with the Commander in chief of the Armed Forces who is the President. That’s first, and then down the ladder. Loyalty to the Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff, down to your Brigade Commander.

“You have to be loyal. There is no room for soldiers that are not loyal to the constituted authority, no. If you are not going to be loyal, then, leave, go and do other work. But the Armed Forces cannot stand it if you are not loyal.

“Discipline, loyalty and top professionalism. We are bearing arms so that other people can sleep well and go about their normal activities. You also have to be hardworking. If you go on any course, make sure you do your best and be among the best. Once you have all these, you will grow in this job,” he said.

The GOC commissioned Quarter Guard project at the Barrack.

He also visited the Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, who pledged to always support the GOC and the Nigeria army.
