    return of the garrison hat. thumbs up!!

  5. beegeagle says:

    Yeah Oga Freeegulf, you heard me say the other day that the garrison hat is back with the NA.

    Long time gone since Lt. General MB Haladu, the last wearer standing until his death in 1998. Been off the kit ever since.

    Generals Haladu and Inienger, both of blessed memory, used to love the garrison hat to no end.

    By the way, the very senior officer (his portfolio is statutorily supposed to be a 3-star perch..ditto CTOP and CDI at DHQ) in the picture standing next to Admiral Ibrahim, is Rear Admiral Thomas Lokoson. He is the Commandant of the apex National Defence College

  7. freeegulf says:

    very true my marshal, garrison hat, wow, the heydays. you re on point! the commandant of NDC should be a 3-star general.

    may Lt Gen ihejirika live long, he’s a divine blessing to the NA. the transformation and professionalism is sipping through, from the officer corp down to the rank and file. shalom

    See men. The ultimate controllers of violence, hmmm I hail una o. This is by far the greatest of times for the NA, Ihejirika and co God bless all of you for keeping Nigeria strong.

    Abi? We thank God for what the defence and security forces under their guidance have been able to do from within since this orgy of insanity foisted on us by the likes of Boko Haram and Ansaru, began.

    The speed with which the NA retrained for the task – and they continue to churn out CTCOIN-ready troops from NATRAC by the thousands every quarter – has been highly commendable.

    The other day, the Chairman of Shell Companies in Nigeria, Mutiu Sunmonu, actually noted that the anti-bunkering operations mounted by the JTF in the Niger Delta is beginning to have a real impact. That is a full triservice operation..with NAF and NN helics conducting aerial surveillance while NA amphibious forces and NN crew sweeping through the waterways below.

    In the Far Northeast, triservice special operations teams and regular units have had an instant impact on the situation. The fact of arriving and pouncing immediately shows the level of confidence within the forces, regardless of all the media-led scare mongering about the purported capabilities of the insurgents and terrorists.

    The SSS continue to provide actionable intelligence and to participate in joint raids with the military while the police have dutifully helped to shore up the numbers everywhere behind the military where a large presence of armed state actors is required.

    We appreciate them all and urge them to make their best efforts, even better. We shall overcome. God is still on our side.

    By the way, our condolences to the COAS General Ihejirika. I learnt on NTA Newsline last night that his multimillionaire father and construction magnate who was well known in the industry in the Southeast, passed away recently.

  11. freeegulf says:

    RIP to the Chief for his loss. his dynamic agility with the army will also be a source of comfort and strength to bear this loss.
