Your families play an essential role in your lives, and their well-being should be of utmost importance to you. These promotions come with the duty to protect not only your nation but also those who depend on you."

Colonel A Abdullahi, the Director of Coordination, earlier in his opening remarks reminded the soldiers of the significance of their roles in maintaining discipline and representing the AWCN positively. 

He charged them to be exemplary in their conduct and to uphold the values and standards of the Nigerian Army.

The ceremony was attended by Directors, Members of the Faculty, College Staff, and Family Members, some of whom offered words of advice and well wishes to the newly promoted soldiers.
