Corps schools class size reduces to 40 students for effective learning – Nigerian Army

Lagos, Feb. 11, 2024 (NAN): The Nigerian Army Education Corps Commander, Maj.-Gen. Bello Tsoho, says the class size in Army schools has been reduced to no more than 40 students per class.

According to him, this is to improve the quality of learning and education in army schools nationwide.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that class size is the number of students in a given classroom or course.

Tsoho made the assertion during the Nigerian Army Education Corps West African Social Activity (WASA) 2023, which was held at the Command Children School Sports Ground, AN Barracks, Yaba, on Saturday.

He said that the policy was part of his blueprint aimed at transforming the Nigerian Army education sector upon his assumption of duties as corps commander ten months ago.

“Specifically on the standard of education in the corps schools, we have been trying to look inward to see what we can do to improve them.

“For instance, in all the corps schools in the country, you will not see more than 40 students per class.

“This is a deliberate policy we designed and introduced to sustain and ensure that in the future, there will be less congestion in our classes,” the corps commander said.

Tsoho said that WASA was an annual event organised to celebrate the end of a successful year for the benefit of the soldiers and their families in an atmosphere of relaxation and merriment.

“It also provides an avenue to identify and reward deserving soldiers that exempt themselves within the past year with a view to making projections for the new year.

“This prepares them for an undiluted commitment to all trainings, operational activities, and administrative activities lined up for the new year.

“We thank God that 2023 has been a success story, and I urge officers and soldiers to put in their best to make 2024 even more successful,” the corps commander said.

Similarly, Maj.-Gen. Kayode Oni (rtd) said the Nigerian Army Education Corps had raised the bar of education within the military in the nation to a fantastic standard.

“I knew what the situation was in 1973, and I know what it is today. So, there have been tremendous developments and contributions to raising the standard of education.

“The logo of the Nigerian Army Education Corps is the torch, and the torch is to beam light into every dark corner of the service and provide the necessary light by way of information and knowledge.

“This has improved the quality of education and also improved the quality of students that graduate from our schools,” he said.

Oni, while commending the troops as protectors of our national dignity, urged them to achieve the realisation of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja’s Command philosophy.

He said that the COAS command philosophy was to transform the Nigerian Army into a well-trained, equipped, and highly motivated force towards achieving constitutional responsibilities within a joint environment.

“I urge you all to remain steadfast in your commitment to duty and continue in your collective effort to attain the COAS command philosophy.

“I urge you not to relent but to embark on another tasking year full of operational training and activities as you anticipate more challenging tasks ahead.
