Three days to the Governorship and State Assemblies Elections,  Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant, Farouk Yahaya has assured Nigerians of a secure and safe environment before,  during and after the exercise.
Lieutenant General Yahaya stated this while inaugurating a Nigerian Army civil military corporation project at Kishi general hospital, Irepo Local Government Area of Oyo State. 
The chief of Army staff applauded Nigerians for the way and manner they conducted themselves during the presidential and National Assembly Election and called for more of it on Saturday to collectively achieve a hitch-free exercise.
General Yahaya who also inaugurated sixty bedded wards at Kishi General hospital said the project fell under the special intervention civil military corporation projects.
He said the Army had recently embarked on elaborate quick-impact projects in several communities with a view to providing the desired succour and further strengthening relationships with people.
General Yahaya stressed that the projects were to complement the already existing basic services, amenities and infrastructure that would alleviate some hardship being faced by the communities.
”This has over time significantly contributed to the Nigerian Army efforts to contain the myriad of security challenges in Nigeria particularly through non-kinetic means”
“The Chief of Army staff’s civil-military intervention corporation of serving Nigerian Army senior officers across the nation have risen to the enviable rank of Major-General in the Army”
He said the construction of the hospital ward was solely conceived by the Chief of Defence, accounts and budget, Major General Adekunle Adesope. 
In a remark, the project executor, Major-General Adekunle Adesope who is also a son of Kishi said the project became imperative as the people of the town were lacking some basic amenities in the health sector.
Major-General Adesope said the hospital would impact positively on the general well-being of Kishi people and also afford them the opportunity to access quality healthcare delivery services. 
Major-General Adesope said he dedicated the hospital to immortalising his late wife.
” The project is Sixty bedded facilities divided into wards for male, female, children, labour room,  reception area, doctor offices and Nurse station”

On his part, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state who spoke through the Irepo Local Government Chairman, Mr Lateef Adediran, said the gesture was a great idea which would facilitate the development of Kishi and its environs. 
Governor Makinde pledged his continuous support to the Nigerian Army and other security agencies at ensuring a peaceful society.
