Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, the chief of Naval staff, has said the military cannot be triumphant in battle in the absence of spiritual support.
Speaking to military officers in Abuja on Thursday, MAY 30, Ibas encouraged them to look to God in their struggles, Vanguard reports.
He said: "The establishment of appropriate places of worship within the barracks is equally as germane as the provision of living accommodation and other administrative and operational commitments.
“This is because a balanced level of spiritual maturity is necessary for military personnel to maintain the required level of conceptual and moral component of his fighting power.
“This will enable him to retain a rational balance needed for the effective employment of his physical competencies to achieve victory in battle.
“As we lay the foundation at these worship centres today, I believe we are laying the foundation for the spiritual and moral development of the service."
