The leadership of the Nigerian military has ordered the compulsory retirement of all ‘disgruntled or unmotivated personnel’ in the army, navy and air force. The memo was signed by MB Nagenu, a Rear Admiral, on behalf of the Chief of Defence Staff, Leo Irabor. PRNigeria quoted the memo as stating that the disgruntled and unmotivated officers and soldiers no longer exhibit a high level of undivided loyalty, and the presence of mind required for military operations. “Consequently, on the identification of disgruntled or unmotivated personnel Services are advised to take steps to compulsorily discharge or retire such personnel in line with extant laws,” the memo states. The event, which was organised by the Nigerian Army Social Activities (NASA), which is a Nigerian version of the West African Army Social Activities otherwise referred to as WASA, was staged by the Commander Sector II of Operation Lafiya Dole, Suleiman Idris.
