Not fewer than 14 top officers of the Nigerian Army have had their positions switched in the security outfit, Premium Times is reporting.

According to the report, these officers (six major generals, five brigadier generals, two captains and one major) have either been appointed into new positions or redeployed to different parts of the country in a major shake-up.

Others include Major Generals K.I. Abdulkarim who was moved to Defense headquarters from Nigerian Army 6 Division headquarters; O.U. Obono, who was moved from Nigerian Army Corps of Artillery Headquarters to the Defence Headquarters; and E.O. Udoh, who was transferred from Defence Headquarters to the Nigerian Army 6 Division Headquarters. All the transfers take effect from January 12, 2017.

Olabanji was also appointed commandant of Nigerian Army Amphibious Training School after being transferred from the Nigerian Army 3 Brigade Headquarters. Their appointments take effect from January 12, 2017.

Other Brigadier-Generals O.T. Akinjobi and A. E. Attu were moved from 82 Division Garrison to 3 Brigade Headquarters as the new commandant and from the National Defence College to 9 Brigade as the new commandant respectively. The redeployments take effect from January 12, 2017.

The shake up comes just weeks after the Nigerian Army recently promoted about 227 officers in a special ceremony. One of those promoted was then acting spokesperson of the Army Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, who is now a Brigadier-General and the substantive spokesperson of the force.

Well...All I am interested in is results and increased level of success in tackling terrorism especially in the north... Shake-up might mean little if no end results.

Apart from political reasons... A shake up like this should be good for the nation's security... You know, that makes things unpredictable and you'd think twice before slipping up knowing fully well that you might get redeployed any time...

Your time, you make good effort to make good.  :)) hmmm... Yes, make good!
