ccording to the late police chief, the Nigerian Army was politicised, enmeshed in partisanship and polarised along Nigeria’s faultlines of ethnicity, religion and regionalism. He added that equally saddening was the reality that Nigerian soldiers who were formally famed nationally and globally for their gallant exploits in wars and Peace-Keeping Missions could no longer boast of such accomplishments. Tsav stressed that the dignity of the Nigerian Army was rubbished by a basketful complaint of favouritism in postings, stalled promotions, unpaid salaries, denial of basic allowances, poor or non-existent welfare packages; lack of motivational incentives to soldiers deployed on special assignments on Internal Security (IS), absence of a reward system for excellence, brazen abuse of rules of Engagement (ROE), widespread professional misconduct and constant mutinies.
