Welcome to the ARMED FORCES COMMAND AND STAFF COLLEGE FINANCE – JAJI


INTRODUCTION


The Armed Forces Command and Staff College is a Joint Service institution established to produce operational-level military officers of the highest professional standard as well as to ensure standardization of Staff Duties in the Nigerian Armed Forces.

HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT


The College was established on 29 May 76 as Army Command and Staff College, with assistance from the British Army Advisory Team (BAAT). As a result of a decision to establish the Air Faculty for the training of Nigerian Air Force officers at Jaji, a Royal Air Force Advisory Team was invited to join their Army counterparts. Thus, on 1 September 1978, the Army Command... and Staff College was re-designated to Command and Staff College (CSC) to reflect the anticipated tri-service nature of the College. Two Navy officers and twenty Air Force officers joined their Army counterparts for the first Command and Staff Course (CSC 1). The Junior Division of the Air Faculty followed quickly and was officially established on 26 February 1979, at the Air Force Base Kaduna. It fully moved to Jaji in August 1986. The Naval Faculty came on stream on 1 September 1981 and thirteen students of the faculty attended CSC 4, as the Navy’s first course in Jaji. The Junior Division of the Naval Faculty was established in Jaji in August 1984, thereby giving the College a complete tri-service outlook. The College was to be fully Nigerianised in 1985 when the BAAT left for United Kingdom. But as a result of the need to develop expertise in Joint Warfare, 5 British officers were invited to advise on the formation of Joint Warfare Division, thereby forming the establishment known as the Joint Warfare Advisory Team (JWAT). This division was fully functional in 1988 and with the departure of the JWAT in October the same year, the College became completely Nigerianised. A military exchange programme between the Nigerian Armed Forces and their Ghanaian counterparts, brought the participation of officers of the Ghana Armed Forces as Directing Staff in the College. The College Headquarters comprises of the Offices of the Commandant, the Deputy Commandant as well as four staff branches responsible to the Commandant for administration, training and co-ordination. These branches are:

  • Coordination Branch
  • Administration Branch
  • Logistics Branch
  • Finance Branch
The Finance Branch is currently headed by Lieutenant Colonel DA Mohammed.
