He reiterated the state government’s commitment to partner officers from the college in their national assignment aimed at establishing a relationship between national security and socio-economic development.
He said the study tour would provide a veritable platform to proffer solutions to the security challenges facing the nation.
He said Delta, like other states, was grappling with various challenges but that government was addressing them through various empowerment schemes.
The SSG listed some of the state’s approaches to socio-economic development in recent times to include capacity building through formal education, skill acquisition and job creation interventions through the establishment of the Delta State Job and Wealth Creation Bureau as well as interventions in the agriculture sector through the Delta State Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (DEMSMA).
According to him, his office, in collaboration with concerned ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs), would ensure they have a successful and a fruitful study tour as arrangements had been made for their visits to some government institutions and private establishments where they will be briefed by their management teams.
Leader of the team, Chidiebere Obiabaka, said the study tour, which was an annual event, would bring the students in contact with different people in the country which would constitute an integral part of the training programmes of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College.
