Generally, in war the best policy is to take a state intact; to ruin it is inferior to this. To capture the enemy's entire army is better than to destroy it; to take a regiment, a platoon, a company, or a squad is better than to destroy them. Consequently, the art of using troops is this:
1.When ten to the enemy's one, surround him.
2.When five times his strength, attack him.
3.If double his strength, divide him.
4.If equally matched, you may engage him with some good plan
5.If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing.
6.And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him, for a small force is but booty for one more powerful if it fights recklessly.
Now, the Director-General (NYSC) is the assistant to the sovereign of the state. If this assistance is all-embracing, the state will surely be strong.
