dc.description.abstract Violence is a common phenomenon in any country especially in developing countries with multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies. However, it is essential for a country to do away with violence and establish peace and security, which is vital for development and economic progress which will ultimately eradicate poverty, improve living standards and usher prosperity to the nation. Peace and security could be brought about by a highly efficient and professional military force whilst safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country. Combat effectiveness is the ability to fight and win. This centres on the capabilities of officers and soldiers, their professional knowledge, managerial skills, leadership qualities, morale and equipment etc. Military needs to have a very sound professional development programme and a promotion system to produce professional leaders of high character, integrity and calibre. Promotion is an elevation to a higher rank. With promotion come increased authority, responsibility, status, financial remuneration and recognition. Therefore, promotions are very critical for the military and its promotion system has a direct bearing on its combat effectiveness. A promotion System based on seniority and which does not consider capabilities of officers is highly counterproductive. Accordingly, this paper discusses a suitable appraisal system for the promotion of officers of the military in order to have efficient military officers for the betterment of the country. en_US
