Mark Challenges Military On Enhanced Security

The Senate President, Senator David Mark has challenged the armed forces to enhance its capacity to identify and disrupt threats to the country’s security.

Mark was speaking at the graduation ceremony of course 21 participants of the National Defence College.

The senate president said the federal government is prepared to take steps that will ensure the force is properly equipped to carry out its mandate.

The ceremony was attended by service chiefs, defence chiefs from participating countries, wives and families of the graduating officers.

The commandant of the college, Rear Admiral Thomas Lokoson encouraged the graduates to act proactively in the different leadership positions that await them, a view the senate president agreed with even though he also added a challenge to the country’s armed forces.
