From the list you listen the are more Muslim bthan christian

What's the justification for your claim? The fact that they are from the North doesn't mean they are actually Muslims you know.

Sahara Reporters can't stop lying. From the names mentioned, there are at least 10 northerners. Out of the 10 northerners, at least 6 of them might be Muslims. So what's Sahara Reporters insinuating now? What's the essence of this report?

Ok. Can you explain the justification behind bypassing 24 top officials that are more qualified?

The fact that SR fooled you with that bypassing 24 officers rubbish doesn't make their story true or relevant because the new COAS has more and better command and operational experience than all of them. You should have asked SR to show you their record.

One of the people SR mentioned was or is the NYSC commandant so explain to us why and how the commandant of NYSC is better than the new COAS with better operational commands including the Army's 1 Division, commander of a major military operation and battlefield experience against terrorists in the NE including foreign military operations.

Is the NYSC commander experience needed in the battle against terrorists? Is it a battlefield experience?

One year seniority doesn't make you a better soldier, it's all about your experience, bravery and command record.

Beats me why you people swallow garbag as if you really must.

Why can't ipob pigs ESN takes advantage of this weakness by declaring war against the weakened Nigerian and its army?
In konshisha LG in benue state 10 Nig Soldiers were murderd in cool blooded and their body found after 2weeks just last month,Apart from uncountable nunbers of invasion of army and police formations across the country Nigeria police and Army have been chased away from mounting uneccessry chakepoints on the highways in SS and SE,most of them are even afraid to wear their uniforms in public,many soldiers fighting terrorism in your state have resigh in their numbers because of sabotage,somany of them have commited mutiny out of frustration,while majority absconded from war front for same reason and more, As i am talking to you now, NA have reduced the requirements for recruitment into the force because of serious shortage of manpower.i dont even know why i am informing and educating you,because you'r better of being a registerd zombie!

Buhari keeps undermining the strength and capacity of our military by making senseless appointments that will force the best hands to retire just to pave way for his anointed nepotistic candidates. You can't just be pushing out best and experienced hands just so you can appoint your preferred Muslim candidates, especially not when you are grappling with the most challenging security situations in the history of the nation. I don't want to lay any courses now, but we kept telling those ignorant and annoying voters that time that Buhari doesn't have anything good to offer Nigeria but they wouldn't listen. Now see where the man is carrying the country to, breaking point and he doesn't even give a hoot if Nigeria scatters so long as he remains president and finishes his 2nd term.

Kai Allah ya isa

This then points to the fact that the report is misleading. He bypassed southerners and Northerners whose religious affiliations I can't confirm. In Sahara's zealousness to paint the FG bad, they have most likely missed the real reason why he was appointed.

I really don't understand why this practice exists in Nigeria is this how it's done in other civilized countries? How can a country loose well trained and experienced military generals because of the appointment of one man it doesn't makes any sense to me?

In as much as I don't like this government, I don't see anything sectional about the appointment considering Federal Character is in play in selection.

If they check the images below of the list previous chief of army staff's they will understand..

They should remember that we have 6 Geopolitical Zones and the Federal Character Commission works with it

North-West,

North-East,

North-Central,

South-West,

South-South,

South-East


And the Nigerian Military is not only the Army, we have the Air Force and the Navy too which also have their equal positions to COAS too.

and not to forget, a Chief Of Defense Staff oversees them all.

It's his choice abeg.. Make dem retire

It's not bad . Actually, everyone has their favourites and would push up narratives to favour their candidates.

The CDS is 34rc and late COAS from 35rc. 6 months difference as NDA wasn't degree awarding then. It became degree awarding from 36rc. 34rc and 35rc will clock 35 years of service this year. If Attahiru had not died, they would also have been like their predecessors; Olonisakin and co who stayed beyond 35 years of service. Normally, it is best for a service chief to serve his tenure within the 35 years of service.

The new COAS is 37rc and will clock 35 years of service in 2023, same year a new President would come in and change them. This allows for normal career progression for everyone. Also, unlike secondary school, once your junior is appointed as head in the military, you have to retire. Staying means obeying his every command and him having the authority to lock you up if needed. The promotion in rank finalises his authority over his mates who might be his senior in terms of army number. Any mate of his that is dissatisfied will also put in paper.
Don’t mind them, much ado about nothing.

What's your argument sir, that buhari is not nepotistic or that the army chief that's of class 37 is the senior of the guys from class 34 and 35?

Most of the middle belt are tired of being lumped together with "The North"

If you don't know that then you are an APC member.

Typically they are rather daft

Then prepare to serve only one term and that's if we don't impeach you using our numerical strength in the national assembly.
When we make the country ungovernable for you, even your kinsmen will be among fore front agitators calling for your immediate resignation.
we are not that weak to be enslaved easily. We are not like ipob pigs, the confirmed Osu of Nigeria.
impeach who. Then be ready for the division of the God forsaken jungle. Cos I will spearhead it within 2yeears .

Basically decapitating an Army that's currently fighting serious wars in different fronts of extremely well trained senior Army officers, just because he wants to put a man who will help him rig the coming elections! This man is unbelievable..

Before he died, the last Chief of Army staff talked about reducing the qualifications needed to be recruited into the army because of low enrollment! He also called for retired soldiers to be ready to be called back into action! Essentially, what it means is that the army is running short on manpower and needs help...

So what did a queer Commander In Chief do afterwards? Fire more Generals because he needs his "Choice Chief of Army staff"! You know what? Buhari is not yet done,.. by the time he's done dealing with this country, if you guys see "nkîta", you will call it "mpûta"..

And what happens to recruiting more , abi the generals will die there ? They will eventually retire one day, besides If they don't retire how will the junior ones get promoted.
Una just like making a hill out of a molehill

What's wrong with you joining the army , just to be armchair critic na Im you sabi

When you weaken the ranks and files of the armed forces and civil services with this kind of appointments base on religious and tribal sentiment, and not merit and seniority,you have succesfully killed all aspirations for efficiency,commitment,patrotism and dedication to duty in nations workforce,with the resultant effect of sleezing,corruption,insecurity, economic collaps,break down of law and order and failure of governance as we'r seeing today in Nigeria,consequences of having a bigot in power,Nigeria is indeed in trouble.

Those who will join the army will still join , arm chair critics like you are cowards who will run away at the sound of a firecracker abi what's stopping you from joining the army.....if you can't join the army then STFU
I'm sure if a christian southerner was appointed we won't hear all these stories

The quantum ignorance embedded in this your uncanny outburst is so startling, I don't even know where to begin to help you..
Do you know what it means to be called a "General"? Do you know about the training, the education, the investments and experience needed to reach that level? Or are you advocating for the Buhari and Babangida years of appointing 20 years old as army Generals?
