In the US Army, a Nigerian woman was recognized as a general.

Amanda Azubuike, a woman from Nigeria, has been promoted to Brigadier General in the US Army.

Recently, she received a decoration at a military installation in Fort Knox, Kentucky, in the US.

Azubuike, who was born in London, UK, joined the US Army in 1994. After completing the Army Aviation Officer Basic Course, he was commissioned as an aviator.

Azubuike has the potential to be a strong leader because, in the words of General James Rainey, head of the US Army Futures Command, “she improves everyone around her.”

The newly appointed general first worked in the aviation industry. Before continuing her career as a public affairs and relations officer in the military, she worked in the industry for 11 years.

Azubuike is now a Deputy Commanding Officer at the US Army Cadet Command and formerly served as Chief of Staff/Senior Military Advisor at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

In addition to her military credentials, Gen. Amanda Azubuike also holds a Master of Professional Studies in Public Relations/Corporate Communications from Georgetown University, a Master of Science in Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College, and a B.Sc. in Mass Communication/Media Studies from the University of Central Arkansas.
