Attahiru said the challenges confronting soldiers on the frontline were surmountable and would be addressed with military effectiveness.

He also pledged to improve the welfare of the troops in the theatre of operations in the northeast, noting that efforts were ongoing to acquire boots, uniforms and protective gears in a couple of weeks.
