The Nigerian Army has declared that it will continue to work towards peace in all the communities in the Niger Delta region.

The Brigade Commander, 16 Brigade, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, Brigadier General Kelvin Aligbe, who made the declaration, yesterday, said the army would continue to explore ways to enthrone peace in all the communities of the region.

Aligbe, who said this during the presentation of chairs, desks and sports materials to a Community Secondary School, Elebele, in Ogbia Local Government Area of the state, noted the motive behind the gesture is to inspire the students and demonstrate that there are alternatives to violence.

“This donation is to facilitate learning in the Community Secondary School, Elebele recognising the facts that education and sports are veritable means of bridging gaps that we’ve identified here in the Niger Delta. With this gesture, we hope we’ve inspire this young students to know there are alternatives to violence, and we expect that this kind of interaction, subsequently, would engender the kind of calmness we want in all the communities in the Niger Delta area, beginning with Elebele community,” he said.

Aligbe seized the opportunity to commend the people of the community for the warmth they have extended to all soldiers since the establishment of the Brigade in 2016.

The paramount ruler of Elebele community, Osene David Osene, commended the army for taking up the responsibility to attend to the education needs of the community.
