President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday commended the newly promoted Commander, Brigade of Guards, Major-General Mohammed Usman, describing him as an outstanding officer who is serving the nation with great zeal.

Buhari, assisted by the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, and the wife of the Commander, Rekiya Usman, decorated the officer with the rank of Major-General, praising him for his diligence, loyalty, patience, and hard work.

Speaking shortly after the ceremony in the Presidential Villa, the President recalled his difficult military career marked with coups, counter-coups, and detention, describing Usman as a very lucky officer to have risen to the height of his military career with distinction and without hiccups.

In his remarks, Major-General Usman thanked the President for his outstanding support to the Brigade of Guards, citing the approval for the procurement of 400 armored vehicles, which he said were enough to secure his area of responsibility including the Federal Capital Territory, Nasarawa State, and parts of Niger State.
