Nigeria Army Promotes Senior Officers by babashiko(m): 12:20am On Dec 10, 2016
The Army Council has on Friday approved the promotion of 227 senior officers from various ranks to the next higher ranks in the Nigerian Army.
Those promoted include 21 Brigadier Generals to Major Generals, 93 Colonels to Brigadier Generals and 113 Lieutenant Colonels to Colonels.
Those promoted include Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 2 Division, Brigadier General CM Abraham; Acting Corps Commander, Nigerian Army Artillery Corps, Brigadier General OU Obono; Acting GOC 3 Division, Brigadier General PJ Dauke and Acting GOC 8 Task Force Division, Brigadier AA Nani as well Acting Coordinator, Nigerian Army Aviation Corps, Brigadier General JB Olawunmi, Commander 48 Task Force Division Engineers, Brigadier General CC Okwonkwo, Brigadier General MSA Aliyu and Brigadier General AM Jalingo, who were all promoted to the rank of Major General, amongst others.
Among the Colonels promoted to the rank of Brigadier Generals are Colonel IY Dogara, Colonel EO Aikhomu, Colonel Aminu Bande, Colonel IFD Briggs, Colonel PA Alamba, Colonel UU Bassey, Colonel UT Musa, Colonel AS Ndalolo, Colonel AI Taiwo, Colonel Y Hassan, Colonel IOO Olotta and Colonel UT Utaru.

Promotion in the Nigerian Army is an annual exercise by the Service to qualified personnel who have distinguished themselves over stipulated period of time.
Earlier in the year, the Nigerian Army carried out several promotion exercises for other categories of its personnel. These include the Junior Non-Commission Officers (JNCOs), Senior Non-Commission Officers and Warrant Officers category, as well as junior officers from the rank of Second Lieutenant to Lieutenants, Lieutenants to Captains and from Captains to Majors.
The approval of the promotion by the Army Council for the senior officers on Friday, is the last for the year.
The promotion exercise is expected to re-energise the beneficiaries towards the discharge of their onerous tasks and responsibilities.

Well deserved. Our soldiers deserve all the support they can get from us.

Boko Haram was ready to over-run Aso Rock and turn Nigeria to an Islamic/Sharia state just like ISIS did in other parts of the world.

Imagine BH in Aso Rock, decreeing that our children must not go to school, making laws as to the number of times a man must sleep with his wife.

Cutting limbs, beheading so- called offenders of their savage proclamations. The thought of it alone makes me feel imprisoned.

Thank you Nigerian army, God bless y'all . Onward ever.

Hope they also promoted the theatre commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Lucky Irabor.

The sight of that man's face alone will scare criminals...

That's a big lie. Except for Brigadier General to Major General, every other promotion in the commissioned officers cadre is automatic provided you meet all the requirements. Same applies to the Navy and Air Force.

Exactly what I was about to say until I saw yours. Actually, from brig gen to gen and above, it is political (region and zone things), but for other ranks, it is purely based on meeting the requirements in terms of seniority on rank, having good records from unit etc. Some people are just in the habit of spreading falsehood.

Good development by the Nigerian Army. Efforts should made to improve the welfare of the officers & men. Also the welfare of deceased officers families & the ex-service men should also be a priority. God bless them & the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

If he is a Major Gen, then promoting him to Lt Gen will not be easy. Buratai is currently a Lt Gen, unless they will promote Buratai to Gen and then make him chief of defence staff.

Senior officers promotion in all Federal Government Agencies, parasatals and ministries are done on federal character basis and senior officers positions are limited because just only view are needed

well take it or leave it dats d blunts truth, how well do u knw ur army? have u ever served in the army? as an other rank dey re slaves to officers, nd some act as bullies to der subordinates, but believe me wit wat u nd ur friend just said i knw u are just a civilian. as we say (who no come no go know wetin i see). if an officer is nice to soldiers he wld be treated like an outcast within der cycle. examples are d likes of capt hassan, col ee john nd ur present nsa maj gen mongunu, hw did dey end up?
