The Nigerian Army Resource Centre (NARC) was established on 20th November 2015 as a national ‘Think-Tank’ aimed at furthering the interest in and knowledge of the art, science and literature of the Defence Services. It is responsible for proffering solutions to the Defence and security issues confronting the Nigerian Army (NA) in particular and the nation in general. This is actualized through research and issue-based discourses including but not limited to brainstorming sessions, seminars, symposia and workshops involving serving and retired officers, scholars from the academia and researchers from related research institutions. To actuate this mandate, the centre was initially structured into 7 Directorates. However, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) recently approved the inclusion of the Nigerian Army Museum as the 8th Directorate.
The Centre publishes Defence-related journals, organizes seminars and offers consultancy services in varied aspects of security. In addition, the Centre showcases new inventions, promotes inter-disciplinary studies and issues annual reports. Ultimately, the aim is to provide necessary advisory services to the COAS for improved decision-making and policy formulation. The Centre presently operates from a temporary site at No. 5 Lekki Close Garki II, Abuja but the permanent site is located opposite the Post-Service Housing Department at Mambilla Barracks Asokoro, Abuja.
