Lt Gen Lagbaja, who recalled during the commissioning ceremony that he was also the Special Guest of Honour during the commissioning of the Phase I of the Battalion’s Officers Quarters earlier in the year, urged the officers of 37 NDA Demo Battalion to put to good use the facility and adequately maintain it.
