In his response, Dr. Umar said that the request is most welcome but advised that the request be made in a letter to the DG while assuring them that the Commission will be glad to partner with them.

The Director, EMTMD, Dr. Roseline Kela in her comment observed that the visiting Officer Cadets were all male, while recalling that their request had already been discussed before now. She assured that the DG is delighted to partner with them, adding that the Commission is waiting for an MoU to be drawn up on that.

Dr. Umar made some souvenir presentations (some ECN Publications) to the Coordinator and advised them to use the materials as for references in their Institution.
