LAST LINE ON POLITICS OF BUHARI'S APPOINTMENT OF SERVICE CHIEFS
Many of our readers have bombarded us with several comments on the recent appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari
Many from a particular geo political zone felt cheated on the appointments
But let's do a quick breakdown
The new Service Chiefs are:
1: Major-General Leo Irabor Chief of Defence Staff ( Delta , South South )
2: Major-General I. Attahiru Chief of Army Staff ( Kaduna , North West )
3: Rear Admiral A.Z Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff ( Kano )
4: Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao, Chief of Air Staff ( Osun , South West )
The two geo political zones not represented are North East and South East.
But the President was so Smart in his appointment of Chief of Defence Staff , Major General Lucky Eluonye Onyenuchea Irabor.
The Major General is an Igboman from Delta State , by so doing President Buhari has technically tried to kill two birds with one Staff, by trying to satisfy both the Igbos and South South with the appointment.
The clinch here is that once decorated , Major General Irabor by his position will become the only Four Star General in the entire Nigerian Army
The Service Chiefs are 3 Star Generals
All the Service Chiefs are expected to report to him and the Commander In Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces.
The appointment of Service Chiefs is at the sole discretion of the President and he is at liberty to choose whosoever he wants.
Finally, several serving Generals across the three armed forces will in the next few days be expected to retire alongside the Service Chiefs
As it is traditional , any General above the appointed Service Chiefs in service ( seniority...year ) will automatically retire voluntarily except with the express permission of Mr President which is very rare.
Thanks and Good Night

Did Ireabor say he is an Igbo man?

Any need for this analysis? Buhari is nepotistic that’s all. Why didn’t he use one staff to satisfy North West and North Central ?

Delta Igbos don't see themselves as Igbos
