Nigerian Army Corps of Artillery has on Friday pulled out seven major generals and 38 other senior officers of the corps after 35 years of meritorious service to the country.

In his valedictory speech on behalf of the retired officers, retiring Major General Abubakar Tarfa said there is a need for the Army to always embrace changes in doctrine, training, and general dispositions to guarantee success in all operations.

Tarfa who advised younger officers to remain loyal to their motherland also expressed gratitude to God and the Nigerian Army for the opportunity to serve their fatherland for decades.

He also called for the sustainability of inter-agency synergy to ensure success in various operations.

“To those of you who are determined to make the military a career please note that our country has fully democratised and the era of military involvement in politics has gone and gone for good.

“Let me, therefore urge you to be loyal to the democratically elected Federal Government of Nigeria.

“On behalf of my fellow retirees, I want to say that we are profoundly grateful to the Nigerian army and would like to keep the shells flying even higher.

“Keep in focus the motto of the Nigerian army which is “Victory is from God Alone,” Tarfa said.

The pulling-out ceremony is part of the routine activities of the Nigerian Army during which it disengages senior officers from its service.

This year's event took place at the Nigerian Army School of Artillery-NASA in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

A total of 45 officers belonging to the artillery corps that formally pulled out included seven major generals, 11 brigadier generals, 18 colonels, one  Lieutenant colonel, three majors, and five captains.
