How did he become platoon commander. The sector he covered was not known for any outstanding valour. At least not on a scale of that of Benjamin adekunle.
Yet most of those who moved up fast after the war were the core northerners including a certain murtala Muhammed who lost woefully

Lol Benjamin Adekunle, Muritala and Obasanjo controlled Many platoons

It's like comparing a DPO to an An AIG in police

Like a zonal manager to a branch manager in banking

Why did Aguiyi Ironsi select him as head of his Transport and convoy details

Why did Obasanjo pick him to head federal petroleum commission

What does petroleum commission have to do with military skill.
Same Aguiyi got killed six months later

Adekunle retired a major and OBJ's military skills coupled with his loyalty can't be questioned

So did they select him for qouta system or merit

Did UN Congo medal also come through qouta system?!

Military Education is not about shooting alone

Obasanjo is an equivalent of an engineer (Indian and UK trained)

Buhari is an equivalent of a Transport and Logistics expert (UK and also Indian trained)

They rule you for decades because British spent to pounds ensuring they are well trained and very qualified

President Muhammadu Buhari has kicked out the Acting Director General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Professor Armstrong Idachaba, who on Monday June 7 directed all broadcast stations in the country to suspend the patronage of Twitter with immediate effect.

In his place, the President has appointed Mr. Balarabe Ilelah as the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).



Idachaba has held the NBC DG post in an “Acting” role since February 2020 when his predecessor, Mallam Is’haq Modibbo Kawu, was placed on an indefinite suspension.

It remains unclear why the President failed to confirm Idachaba for the role and why the Professor was being relieved of the position at this moment.

However, when in Buhari’s pre-recorded Arise TV interview on Thursday the President was asked questions on the Twitter drama, His Excellency had declined to comment on the episode, saying he would prefer to keep that issue to himself.

Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who announced Ilelah’s appointment via a statement on Friday, indicated that the new NBC DG had a five-year tenure.

In a rather unpopular and controversial move that attracted threats of litigation from outfits like Daar Communications, Professor Armstrong Idachaba, as Acting Director General of NBC, on Monday directed all broadcast stations nationwide to suspend the patronage of Twitter with immediate effect.

Not a few had felt that Idachaba’s intervention and direction in issuing the instruction amounted to that of a meddlesome interloper, as many media houses had skirted the Twitter ban by accessing the platform through the VPN router instead of the local networks that had been instructed by the government to bar the service.

The Twitter platform had been a fertile ground for sourcing and exchanging news and information for the media.


But Idachaba and NBC declared that it would be unpatriotic for any Nigerian broadcaster to patronise the banned platform as an information source.

According to him, the directive fell in tandem with Section 2(1) of the NBC Act, mandating NBC to enforce the responsibility of ensuring strict adherence to national laws, rules and regulations.

Idachaba’s memo also quoted Section 3.11.2 of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code, which he said stipulated that: “The broadcaster shall ensure that law enforcement is upheld at all times in a matter depicting that law and order are socially superior to or more desirable than Crime and Anarchy.

“Attention is also drawn to Section 5.6.3 of The Code which requires Broadcasters to be mindful of materials that may cause disaffection, incite to panic or rift in the society in the use of a User Generated Content (UGC).”

Born in 1962, Armstrong Aduku Idachaba was a Nigerian Professor of Mass Communication, and had served as Director of Broadcast Policy and Research in the commission before his February 2020 elevation as replacement for Modibbo Kawu who had been sacked over corruption allegations.

Military education is not about governance. It's about command and obey. Which is why those who gave us our military never allowed their military rule them.
It's even funny you think a transport expert in the military should head a petroleum ministry. No wonder he's been going about thinking he actually knows something about petroleum and even sacked a professional like kachikwu and install a stooge like Sylva as replacement.

Military rule is what has decimated our national psyche where there's no respect for rule of law and democracy. So stop glorifying people who access power through guns and bombs as if it's a symbol of superior intellectualism or ideals

They selected him for quota system. Nothing in his training or experience qualifies him to head a petroleum ministry.

UN Congo medal was for peacekeeping as a soldier not for academic brilliance or political exceptionality.
Stop mixing things up. Buhari was neither exceptional as petroleum minister, head of state and is most incompetent as president.
