”When we talk about inter-agency cooperation, we have one of the best relationshipa with the Nigerian Army, Navy and Air Force,” he said.
He expressed appreciation to the Chief of Defence Staff for granting the corps, opportunities in the usage of some facilities for training of its officers.
Earlier, Ofoche said that the army had enjoyed some level of synergy with the corps which was geared toward nation-building.
