Buhari Promotes Lamidi Adeosun To Lieutenant General by chisomdoris: 5:42pm On Jul 09
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the promotion of the Nigerian Army Chief of Training and Operations, Maj Gen Lamidi Adeosun, to the rank of a Lieutenant General, the same rank as the Chief of the Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai.

The Nigerian Army confirmed this promotion in a release on Tuesday.

The acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sagir Musa, said apart from Adeosun, the President also approved the promotion of “Brig Gen AB Biu, General Officer Commanding 7 Division to the rank of a Major General.”

Musa said, “The President and Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari, has approved the accelerated promotion of two senior officers and a subaltern of the Nigerian Army. The officers are granted promotion for their extraordinary feats, courage, exemplary leadership, loyalty, uncommon commitment and valour in the counter-insurgency operation in the North Eastern part of the country.

“The two senior officers are Maj Gen Lamidi Adeosun, the Chief of Training and Operations at Army Headquarters, who has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General and Brig Gen AB Biu, General Officer Commanding 7 Division and Commander Sector 2 Operation Lafiya Dole, Maiduguri, promoted to the rank of a Major General. Also, promoted to the rank of Captain is Lieutenant AJ Danjibrin of 211 Demonstration Battalion Bauchi.

“Similarly, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, on behalf of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army felicitated with the newly promoted officers and extends his best wishes to them in all their future endeavours.”

What is the implication of this promotion?

Based on precedence, only the chief of army staff gets promoted to the rank of a Lieutenant General. Was he promoted to understudy Buratai so as to ease the succession plan? Or maybe he’s being prepared to take over as chief of defense staff from Gen. Olonisakin as it seems unlikely to me that PMB will be comfortable with a southerner as his chief of army staff.

Maj. Gen. Lamidi Adeosun is the man they want to use and replace Buratai. Anyways, Congratulations on your promotion.

I wish you can fight Herdsmen, bandits, kidnappers, Boko haram, ND militants, etc with all honesty, but I know that won't happen because you will still be doing the bidding of the cabals.

Try to, at least, boost your boys morale fighting in the field when you finally resume as COAS. Don't be


So Col. Sagir Musa, the man who started oil bunkering in the creeks of Niger Delta is still in Abuja? It is well.
