Facilities for Defence Headquarters (DHQ) physical training and fitness have received a boost with the renovation of a volleyball court and football pitch by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin.
The facilities which are located at the Mogadishu Cantonment Asokoro, Abuja were in bad condition which hampered their usefulness for the physical training of the personnel.
Commissioning the facilities on Wednesday, Chief of Defence Training and Operation, Major Gen Ahmed Mohammed who represented the CDS at the monthly sports event of the DHQ noted that sports remain an important tool in maintaining a healthy body.
He reminded personnel to always keep fit in order to withstand the rigours of military operations and also urged them to make good use of the facility for their benefit.
Highlight of the event were novelty football and volleyball matches between DHQ teams.
