Chief Of Defense Staff, General Lucky Irabor, Takes Bold Step To Promote Talented Military Officers

Nigeria’s Chief of Defense Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, has taken an unusual but bold step to promote talented, younger military officers.

About 50 Patriotic Generals in the Army, Navy and Air force will now make their exit for younger officers whose growth was previously stunted by the logjam at the top.

Women rights group also report that the decision taken by Gen. Irabor has created the biggest opportunity in Nigeria’s history for women serving in the armed forces to climb the leadership ladder.
