Promotion Examination: 300 Soldiers Converge In Ibadan

Ibadan – The Nigerian Army in Ibadan commenced a week-long practical promotion examination for 300 soldiers of captain cadre.

The officers, who would be promoted to major cadre if successful, were drawn from all the formations of the Nigerian Army.

A member of the directing staff involved in the exercise, Maj. Yusuf Dodo, told newsmen that the exercise was part of the requirements for promotion to the next rank.

The officers, he said, would tested in map reading, an aspect of the examination aimed at assessing their ability as well as professional competence.

According to him, the map reading examination is compulsory for every eligible combatant officer.

“If the men are under attack, you have to trace your commander through map reading.

“These officers are the ones that have direct contact with the enemy. You make your plans, you strategise under rain or sun, you have to go out to execute,” he said.

Reports say that the examination is being held at the Leutmack Barracks, Mokola.
