No fewer than 113 Nigerian Army Generals on Tuesday bowed out of service.

The breakdown shows one General, one Lieutenant+General, 67 Major-Generals, and 44 Brigadier-Generals.

The Minister of Defence,  Alhaji Abubakar Badaru, who announced this at the pulling out ceremony, assured the ex-service men of prompt payment of all pension entitlements.

According to a statement on Wednesday by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the minister hailed the support of the Nigerian Army towards strengthening the growth of democracy in the country.

The minister charged members of the Armed Forces to remain loyal and sustain the culture of supporting democracy in Nigeria and across the shores.

Nwachukwu added that the disposition of the Armed Forces towards democracy had made it a shining example in West Africa and an influencer in the comity of nations.

The minister noted that the occasion provided the Nigerian Army the opportunity to reflect on its service and profound dedication as demonstrated by the retired and retiring senior officers.


Nwachukwu promised that the Federal Government would continue to do all within its power to improve the well-being of serving and retired personnel.

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, said the regimental dinner was to appreciate the retired senior officers for their services to the Nigerian Army.

He congratulated them for getting to the point of disengaging from service on a meritorious note.
