This is as the Nigeria Army embarked on a massive restructuring of its major commanding posts and units around the country.

A statement released by the Director of Army Public Relations, Sani Usman, said the new posting was “in a bid to re-strategise the Nigerian Army”.

He said a total of 147 officers have been posted into Operation LAFIYA DOLE, some Divisions, formations and training schools.

Congratulations Attahiru....just know that it's not gonna be an easy one
Yeah, it never is.

What do you think of the war against Boko Haram? If you were to score the Nigerian army, what mark would you dish out- considering how things were before Buhari took over and how they are at the moment?
