The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor said joint training exercises for the Armed Forces was vital to curbing security challenges in the country. He spoke at a Joint Simulation Exercise 2022 for Operation Whirl Punch in Abuja on Wednesday.
He noted that given the time available for the defence forces, the starting point would be to have a simulation exercise.
Irabor said the armed forces operate within an environment and within a geographical space but the contending issues were far beyond those within such space which was global in nature.
The military chief noted that presently the armed forces were engaged in various theatres of operations across the country, dealing with issues that were more internal in nature, that at some point required resources and the capacity of the armed forces.
