General Aderonke Kale
Introduction and inspection of military officers
General Aderonke in her office while receiving a guest
In the year 1972, Aderonke joined the Nigerian Army. This was a very rare decision for women in those days. She was a colonel and deputy commander of the Nigerian Army Medical Corps by 1990. She was later promoted to the rank of brigadier-general and in doing so became the first female general in West Africa.
Aderonke was later promoted to major-general in 1994 and became the first Nigerian woman to achieve that rank.
May the Almighty bless her for serving her father land.
I hope this will inspire our ladies to join the army because you hardly hear of women occupying high ranks or positions in the Nigerian Army except for a few.
