DIRECTORATE OF NIGERIAN ARMY WELFARE LIMITED/Guarantee
Militaries over place welfare of it’s personnel a top priority. Nigerian Army (NA) is not an exception. The NA has over time introduced and still introducing various welfare packages in order to meet its moral component strategy which would produce a well-focused and morale motivated troop to win all battles as well as render aids to civil authority in quelling all forms of insecurity. Consequently, the NA established Army welfare holdings limited (AWHL) which later in 2008 metamorphosed to Nigerian Army Welfare Limited/Guarantee (NAWL/G). Its primary mandate was to coordinate the welfare of the NA personnel. it is also tasked to provide strategic policy, direction, streamline, harmonize and coordinate the activities of hitherto independent subsidiaries.
Its strategic mission is to turn "waste to wealth" by exploring opportunities within our environment to improve on the welfare of troops and profitability for the NA. They are Nigerian Army Post Exchange (NAPEX), Nigerian Army Properties Limited (NAPL) and Nigerian Army Small Scale Drug Manufacturing Unit (NASDMU). Others are Nigerian Army Welfare Insurance Scheme (NAWIS), Post Service Housing Development (PHD) and Post-Service Homes Savings and Loans (PHL). NAWL/G has had 5 Group Managing Directors since its establishment. The present GMD is Brigadier General Adeyemi Adetayo.
