Nigerian Military Promotes 235 Personnel

The Nigerian military has announced the promotion of the Acting Director, Defence Media Operations, Brig.-Gen. Benard Onyeuko, to the rank of Major-General and 234 other personnel in the military.

The promotion came barely one week amid rife insinuations that the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, last week asked not less than 50 Generals in the military to proceed on retirement.

Daily Trust reports that the promotions, which were released late Tuesday night after the sitting of the Army Council, Navy Council and the Air Council, were held at the Ministry of Defence with the Minister of Defence, Maj.-Gen. Bashir Magashi (Rtd) as presiding chairman.

In the latest promotion, our correspondent gathered that the Nigerian Army promoted 36 officers to the ranks of Major-Generals from Brigadier-Generals, while 76 Colonels were promoted to Brigadier Generals.

The Nigerian Navy promoted 21 Commodores to Rear Admirals and 36 Captains to Commodores, while the Nigerian Air Force promoted 30 new Air Vice Marshals from Air Commodores and 36 Group Captains to Air Commodores.
