A delegation of 28 senior military officers from the National Defence College of Nigeria is in Rwanda for a regional study tour from 12th to 19th June 2021.

The delegation, led by Brig Gen Aniedi Edet has paid a courtesy call to Rwanda Defence Force (RDF) Army Chief of Staff (ACOS), Lieutenant General Mubarakh Muganga after which they received a presentation on the RDF roles and organisation.

The Team leader and Director of Coordination of the visiting team spoke at length on their tour in Rwanda and thanked RDF for a warm welcome extended to the delegation so far.

“For this year, we are eight teams going to other parts of the world, but team seven came to Rwanda to particularly explore the strides achieved in the area of Digital healthcare in Rwanda and draw lessons,” said Brig Gen Edet.

He highlighted that the selection of Rwanda was mainly motivated by the existing strategic partnership between Rwanda and Nigeria.

Rwanda and Nigerian militaries have exchange training programme at the senior command and staff course level that has been going on for quite some time.

The delegation from NDC started their official tour on Monday. They visited Kigali Genocide Memorial where they paid respect to victims of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.

During their week-long tour, the delegation will also visit the Ministry of Health, Rwanda Biomedical Centre (RBC), Rwanda Information Society Authority (RISA), Zigama CSS, Military Medical Insurance, Rwanda Military Hospital, Campaign Against Genocide Museum, Huye Museum and other key government and public institutions.
