Do you have any bloody idea what it takes to get promoted or become a General in the Army's merit based system? You think it's beans? If you have family friends that are Col. or Brig. Gens, ask them about Staff College, NIPSS, or War College.

Please provide proof the late Gen. Azazi, former CAS,CDS, and NSA, sold weapons to ND terrorists (weapons used to kill his OWN men and innocent civilians). If you can't, SHUT THE Bleep UP.

How dare your mom gave birth to a slowpoke like you, when she could have easily aborted the pregnancy and spared the world from your stupidity? Have you forgotten that GEJ is not just the President of the Federal Republic, but also Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces? You know what that means, right?

I believe he doesn't, but needless to say, what does GEJ know about the Military ?

Like a General was telling me early this month, "GEJ just performs routine duty of allocation of monthly allowance."

I don't care from which locality the next GCAF comes from, all I want is improved welfare package for our soldiers in the 3 arms, and the entirety of Nigeria.

Long live the Sovereign federation of Nigeria.... smiley

Thank God i'm not the first person to bring sentiment into the Nigerian Military. The Islamic Organization of Nigeria started it after two prominents Soldiers (Muslims) were sacked in Kaduna State last Month. God will surely defeat you people and every Boko Haramist soldiers in the North in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen! You guys are losing...
