Rawalpindi, April 19, 2016 (PPI-OT):General Raheel Sharif, Chief of Army Staff visited Signal Regimental Centre Kohat today. At an installation ceremony COAS pinned the badges of rank on the shoulders of Major General Sohail Ahmed Zaidi, Singnal-in-Chief to formally install him Colonel Commandant of Corps of Signal. Interacting with officers, men and families of Shuhada COAS commended the extra ordinary efforts of ranks of signals Corps in providing communication support to Op Zarb-e-Azb.
He also appreciated the sacrifices rendered both by men in uniform and civilians alike in defeating the terrorists and dislodging them from their bases. COAS further said, ongoing war against terrorism and extremism being fought with the backing of entire nation cannot bring enduring peace and stability unless the menace of corruption is not uprooted.
Therefore, across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan. Pakistan Armed Forces will fully support every meaningful effort in that direction, which would ensure a better future for our next generations. Earlier COAS laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada and offered Fateha.
