Consequently, the Brigadier general who arrived the state in the company of other senior officers from the directorate of Army recruitment, resettlement and reserve were received by the state governor Hope Uzodinma who was represented by his deputy Prof prof. Placid Njoku who expressed total satisfaction on the development and pledge maximum support.
